Fire risk management policy, procedures and guidelines

An organisation entering into a service agreement must have in place an appropriate system to protect people under its care. For this reason, the Department of Health & Human Services (the department) is keen to clarify its role and the role of organisations in protecting the department's staff and clients from fire risk.

A critical part of this commitment is the development of a Fire Risk Management Strategy (FRMS). Guidelines have been developed to aid compliance with the obligations of the Department of Health & Human Services and the Director of Housing for fire risk management in buildings.
