Fire protection in the building industry - Identifying risks and understanding safety measures
Monday, 2 May 2016
Understanding how the extinguishing agents in your gaseous fire suppression system are regulated under national law has many benefits including protecting your workers and the environment. The Fire Protection Industry (ODS & SGG) Board and the Department of Environment have been working in partnership on a project to improve the use of scheduled extinguishing agents (ozone depleting substances and synthetic greenhouse gases) used in the building industry.
The findings from the project indicate that the building industry accounts for the highest number of reported accidental discharges. Further advice using gaseous fire suppression systems in the building industry can be found in the Fire Protection Industry Board article Fire protection in the building industry.
