MANAGE YOUr DUTY OF CARE FOR 2022 LEGISLATION
Legislation for all residential properties in Queensland is changing to provide a high standard of safety with regards to smoke alarms. Compliance for rental properties must be completed by 1st January 2022.
Smoke Alarms Australia has developed a simple to understand pricing plan that negates the need for individual quotes for each landlord giving them surety of the upfront cost. The Smoke Alarms Australia program also provides benefit to the Agency by reducing time to manage this process through the fixed price model and the portfolio roll-out support.
All alarms used by Smoke Alarms Australia are certified to the Australian standard of AS3786:2014 and are CSIRO approved. The testing process is Industry leading with certification of compliance provided after each service call. The program also includes a push button safety switch test, unlimited photoelectric alarm replacement, access to the beeping alarm support line and unlimited work orders during the year.
As an added bonus, for properties subscribed to the program, Smoke Alarms Australia will include the replacement of all alarms, even those that are missing, damaged or affected by environmental factors until 1st January 2022. After that, all alarms outside of a warranty claim will incur a replacement fee of $139.
