Does my office need a fire alarm?

The current UK fire alarm regulations stipulate that all business premises must be equipped with appropriate fire detection systems. In the event of a fire being detected, it is essential that all occupants can be adequately warned so that they can leave the area.

Electric inspection reports, or EICRs, are crucial and in-depth assessments of any equipment that has the potential to fall victim to deterioration or compromise.

What is the legal requirement for fire alarm testing?

In order to keep businesses and residential properties safe and secure, fire alarm equipment must be installed and tested regularly.

There are strict guidelines in place to protect buildings and occupants, and these guidelines can be found through your qualified and accredited fire safety provider – every 6 months, fire alarms should be inspected and serviced.

To make sure all the systems are fully functional, it is also a good idea to designate a member of staff to conduct weekly fire drills.

How often should fire alarms be tested in the workplace?

In accordance with the law, fire alarms should be inspected weekly with annual inspections taking place every six months. A fixed wire test of your fire alarm equipment is essential to ensure the system is fully functional and that all occupants are familiar with the alarm sound in the event of an emergency.


There are over 20,000 fires caused by electricity every year, sadly there are 46 deaths and 2,469 injuries every year. Over £100 million worth of damage was caused to private property by electrical fires in 2014. (Figures taken from electricalsafetyfirst.org.uk)

Work was carried out during September 2021. The electricians worked in a very professional way and resolved several problems that had previously existed. Good work.

I used G Taylor to install new wiring, new lighting, relocate some sockets, switches and lights and repair a couple of broken sockets. Their quote was very competitive and the guys were very professional and helpful. I’m very happy with the work they completed and I’ll be asking them to complete installation of an electric vehicle charger and hopefully solar panels next year. They’ve already given me some helpful advice on an EV charger and made sure my wiring etc is ready for that to be installed. Overall I’ve been very happy with G Taylor and would definitely recommend their services.
