Owners and Occupiers

Owners and occupiers of buildings have a number of fire safety obligations imposed on them by the Fire Service Act 1979 and the General Fire Regulations 2010 . These obligations are primarily aimed at providing for the safety of building occupants and fire-fighters in the event of a fire occurring in a building, and to minimise the spread of fire.

How can I get more information?

Further information for owners, occupiers and users of many types of buildings in Tasmania about these obligations can be obtained from the Building Safety Unit of the Tasmania Fire Service
