At FCF, we pride ourselves on ensuring we are giving our customers the best products, service, and solutions. With this, we also believe it is important to educate our customers, so they know what their obligations are as an occupier in commercial premises and how to avoid being dealt a dud deal if not fully being aware of what is required for fire compliance or even what can happen if occupiers think they can do the job themselves.
In Queensland, it is a requirement to have a QBCC licence to test, install or maintain prescribed fire safety installations. This even includes fire extinguishers, no one should be installing, testing, or maintaining fire extinguishers without a QBCC licence.
It is a requirement under the Building Fire Safety Regulations 2008 and Queensland Development Code MP6.1 that occupiers are responsible for engaging a qualified person to maintain fire safety installations. FCF is qualified and QBCC licenced, so engaging us will ensure you as an occupier are meeting this requirement under the regulations and are not at risk of being fined.
FCF is dedicated to providing products that will last. Customers may think that buying an extinguisher online or at the hardware shop down the road will suffice and meet requirements for fire safety compliance. This is not necessarily the case at all. Buying from suppliers that are not experts in the field can result in extinguishers being purchased that are not certified.
