Fire Safety

Fire SafetyWe recognize the importance of fire safety and would like to seek your co-operation in making the premises a safe place to work in. Protection and prevention is the best defense against the high cost of fire damage and its disruptive effects on businesses.

Please take note of the following statutory guidelines to safeguard your premises and ensure that your operations are fire-safe:


Firefighting Equipment

Equip your premises with the appropriate firefighting equipment. You should also ensure that all fire alarm and extinguishing systems, air conditioning systems, ventilation systems, exit lighting, signs, emergency lighting and other electrical wiring equipment and installations are serviced and maintained regularly to keep them in good working condition.

Fire Alarm & Extinguishers

If the existing fire alarm and extinguishing system in your premises is unsuitable or inadequate for your activities and operations, please carry out the necessary modification works with our prior consent. You are required to modify your existing system if it does not comply with the requirements of the relevant authorities due to any modification to the premises, for example the installation of false ceilings.

Fire Exits

Under the Fire Safety Act, all emergency exits should be kept unlocked at all times or control by an emergency “break-glass” panel to release/unlock door in term of emergency. You are required to install exit lightings and signs at exit passageways and exits of your premises. Emergency lighting should also be installed in your premises.

False Ceiling

For premises with additional false ceilings, you are advised to:

  1. lower the heat/smoke detectors or install an additional layer of heat / smoke detectors below the false ceiling or;
  2. install an additional layer of sprinklers if the space between the false ceiling and the concrete ceiling is more than 0.8m.

Keep Common Corridors Clear

Under the Fire Safety Act, you are not allowed to carry out any operations such as packing and unpacking, or storing cargo along the common corridors, which may obstruct accesses, stairways, passageways, and other common areas of the building.

Flammable Matter

As portable petroleum and gas cylinders are highly flammable, they should not be stored in your premises for production work as they endanger lives and property. This also applies to any materials or chemicals of a flammable nature. If you have to use or store them in your premises, please ensure that you comply with the requirements stated in the Fire Safety Act and Fitting Out Manual.

Fire Evacuation Procedure

Fire Evacuation Procedure

Your property is equipped with a Fire Alarm System and it is remotely monitored on a 24-hour basis.

If the fire alarm is activated, please evacuate according to the procedure stated in the Fire Emergency Plan to the designated Assembly Area by using the nearest evacuation route. Please do not take the lifts.

To avoid false alarms, please do not break the “Fire Alarm call points” except during an actual fire.

  • Please ask for a copy of the Fire Emergency Plan for the building from the Property Management Office if you are not given one.

Good Community Practices

We encourage good community practices within our properties as they benefit all tenants and visitors. These practices are essential in enabling you to maintain good relations with your neighbours and Landlord. Some examples of good community practices are:

Passenger Lifts

Use the passenger lifts for transportation of passengers only and not for goods or other purposes. Misuse of such communal facilities may cause inconveniences and unnecessary wastage of time for other users.

Avoid using or diverting any gas, electricity, water or other utilities unless these are supplied through separate meters installed by you.

Obstruction

Parking

Vehicles which are parked indiscriminately will be wheel clamped and an unclamping fee will be charged for releasing the clamp.

Only electric or gasoline operated forklifts are allowed within the designated areas and should only be used for loading and unloading goods. They should not be parked along common passageways when not in use.
