O&M's are a legal requirement for contractors to issue you, the client, a site completion file of all fire protection works carried out to the building and any associated documents.

This is for record-keeping but also assists with ongoing fire protection maintenance of the building. The O&M files are to remain onsite for the lifetime of the building and include things such as Fire Strategy, Survey Reports, Third-Party Certification, Risk Assessments and much more!

Benefits of Certifications & O&M's

When it comes to fire protection, certifications and operational & maintenance (O&M) plans stand as cornerstones of safeguarding both property and lives. From a fire protection perspective, certifications validate the integrity and efficacy of passive fire protection (PFP) systems, ensuring their ability to withstand the onslaught of fire and compartmentalize hazards, thus minimizing the spread and intensity of blazes. These certifications, often granted by accredited bodies, attest to the adherence of PFP systems to stringent industry standards and protocols.

How Certifications & O&M's Benefit Businesses

Business owners reap substantial benefits from procuring Certification & O&M's plans for their PFP systems. Compliance with industry standards and regulatory requirements not only enhances the safety of their premises but also mitigates potential legal liabilities arising from fire incidents.

Moreover, certifications boost property values, instill confidence among tenants and customers, and strengthen the overall reputation of the business. On the operational front, O&M plans provide clear guidelines for the routine maintenance and inspection of PFP systems, ensuring their optimal performance and longevity. This proactive approach not only minimizes the risk of fire-related equipment failures but also reduces downtime and associated costs.
