Essential Safety Measures

Essential Safety Measures (ESM) often called Essential Services, refers to the fire and safety elements needed to maintain building safety and protect those inside. Essential Safety Measures are wide ranging, and vary building to building.  They include fire safety equipment, alarm systems, exit signage, emergency lighting, ventilation and air conditioning systems, and regular egress inspections, to name a few.

Essential Safety Measures specific to your building can be found on your Occupancy Permit, Certificate of Final Inspection or Maintenance Determination, which must be prepared by a Registered Building Surveyor. The Essential Property Solutions team can assist you with this process.

 

 

Non-Compliance

The goal at Essential Property Solutions is to assist you with your building compliance obligations, which should be a high priority for ALL building owners and managers. Compliance is mandatory, no owner or manager wants an infringement notice, fines or penalties from the authorities, or worse, to be held responsible for an injury or death of someone in their building or a passerby. So, the Essentials Team is here to provide you with accurate and reliable solutions.

If you’re a building owner and your building does not meet regulation requirements, you could be responsible for putting your occupants, and those around you, at risk. Building safety and minimising risk are our highest priority.

 

Annual Reports

At Essential Property Solutions, we recognise and value the trust each client places in our hands and make it our mission to provide the highest quality services.

An Annual Essential Safety Measures Report is required for each property under the Building Regulations. The service and maintenance records held by the Essentials Team, in their specifically developed system, form the basis of that Report. They prepare the Annual ESM Report, which is evidence that ALL the Essential Safety Measures, the fire and safety elements in the building have been maintained to the required standards for the previous 12 month period.
