Essential Safety Measures
Essential safety measures (ESM’s) include the fire, life safety and health items installed or constructed in a building to ensure adequate levels of fire safety and protection over the life of the building. As the owner of a building, you are responsible for its ongoing maintenance and have an obligation to ensure that any essential safety measure continues to perform at the same level of operation that existed when it was first commissioned. This means that regular inspections are required and accurate records are held on the property.
