In addition to the fire safety plan, Part 7 of the Ontario Fire Code (OFC) requires that a building-specific smoke control Inspection and testing document containing an equipment list and associated testing requirements be maintained at each high-rise building in Ontario.
The building Owner is required to ensure that tests and inspections are carried out on these systems as required in the Engineered document.
The spread of smoke and toxic gas is recognized as a major hazard in all structure fires and in high-rise buildings, smoke can travel from the fire quickly. Smoke control systems can assist in mitigating the impacts to occupants and arriving fire services.
Confirm your building’s smoke control systems have been tested as required and are fully functioning. If you are unsure, we can help.
