1 What is The Fire Safety Target Inspection?
It is required by law for any person nominated as a fire safety manager to report once per year, fire safety inspection results to the local fire department. This report can only be sent after having a qualified inspector inspect to ensure all necessary work has been done.
The inspector will also confirm the building logs of those involved in fire safety, with the aim of helping fire safety managers protect their own buildings, heightening independence in fire prevention.
2 Why have this inspection?
・In the event of a fire, some objects placed in the stairway prevent a safe evacuation.
・Nobody is nominated to manage fire prevention and proper practices are not carried out, delaying the evacuation.
・Appropriate equipment is left uninstalled and the fire expands.
To Prevent The Above Issues:
The prevention of a fire disaster relies on the expertise, preparation, and advice of a qualified inspector. In the event of a fire or other natural disaster, an inspector’s advice can help the fire manager take action and set countermeasures to ensure the injury is minimal.
