Application for fire system interruption

The following procedures must be strictly adhered to
For projects involving works that may generate heat, dust, or smoke, you need to submit an application for a fire system interruption.

For all fire service isolation, you need to submit a fire system interruption form at least three working days before the commencement of the isolation.

The isolation can be performed by a project-appointed fire contractor or by the University Fire Services Maintenance Provider.

If using the University Fire Services Maintenance Provider to action the isolation, submit a work request through Campus Assist. You will need to provide a valid University Account Code. This can be supplied by the University manager in charge of the project.

Systems should be restored at the end of each day. If a system needs to be left isolated overnight, email and to ensure adequate fire protection can be maintained.

You will need to provide a Safe Work Method Statement (SWMS) identifying the risks and measures undertaken to ensure adequate fire protection is maintained at all times in the general location of the works. This statement can be submitted along with the application for the fire system interruption.

Works cannot commence before approval is received from Campus Infrastructure & Services.

Please note

  • It is mandatory to use hotworks and/or dustworks forms, if there are any hotworks or dustworks involved in the work.
  • This isolation notification is for insurance purposes.
  • You will need to arrange for a Fire Coordinator to perform the isolation.
