Building Advisory Services

The Building Safety Unit is one of four units within the Community Fire Safety Division of the Tasmania Fire Service and its role is to improve fire safety in buildings. The primary focus is on reducing the incidence and impact of fire in prescribed classes of buildings including health care facilities, licenced premises, schools, office buildings and factories. Fire safety in these buildings is promoted through the application and administration of building fire safety legislation, codes, standards and individual audits.

For information about fire safety for buildings in bushfire prone areas go to Building for Bushfire.
