04 Dec BESA release new technical bulletin TB/009
Building Engineering Services Association (BESA) has this year released a new technical bulletin (TB/009) in conjunction with TR19 and to conform with the RRFSO (The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005).
Having cleaned your commercial grease extraction system, your cleaning contractor should provide you with a post-clean report (PCR) that comprises of the following:
- An executive summary that highlights the key risks
- A clear yes or no as to whether the system has been cleaned in its entirety
- If no, the reason why it has not been cleaned fully and a possible solution
- Other hazards that have been identified
- Micron readings for the test locations.
- The mean (average) micron reading across all micron readings taken.
- The current cleaning frequency.
- A recommendation of a new cleaning frequency based on the micron readings.
- A sufficient number of before and after cleaning photographs of the system to give a true representation of the system condition. These should be at minimum in the seven TR/19 test locations (section 7.41), and more if the duct length exceeds 10 meters.
- A schematic diagram of the system layout showing the system that has been cleaned and any areas that could not be cleaned.
- Test locations identified on the schematic.
