45 CHAPTER 6 6.0 OPERATIONS & MAINTENANCE MANUAL The O&M manual explains what the building operator and fire safety manager (FSM) should do to maintain and operate the fire safety systems. It also gives instructions to the building operator on the restrictions placed on the contents in the building e.g. daily operations, addition & alteration works to the building and change of use of the building, based on FSE's assumptions and design considerations. The O&M manual can also be used to communicate to the tenants and occupants about these restrictions and their responsibilities. It can also be used as a guide for future renovations and changes to the building. The updated O&M Manual must be given to the owner/client after the performance based audit is closed (see para 6.8). 6.1 The cover page shall clearly state that the O&M Manual is prepared for : a) Building Owner/Managing Committee/Agent b) Facilities Director/Manager c) Fire Safety Manager / Company Emergency Response Team (CERT) Cover Page 6.2 Role & responsibilities of building operator State the role and responsibilities of the building operator and fire safety manager (FSM), if applicable, in ensuring that the components of the performance-based design are in place, operating properly and a label, “This building has performance- based fire safety design” to be affixed to the main fire alarm panel or zone chart. This is to alert or remind the building owner and QPs that this is a performance-based building and the Operations and Maintenance Manual must be understood before undertaking any addition and alteration works.

46 Design considerations with potential impact to life safety or building operations shall be stipulated for the building owner to adopt. Amendments or deviations from the requirements in the operations and maintenance manual may affect the performance-based analysis and solutions. 6.3 Future Addition & Alteration (A/A) Works State what the building operator needs to do with respect to compliance to the existing Fire Safety Design if there are A&A Works in the future. A letter of no objection from the FSE or QP shall be required as part of the QP’s submission if the A/A works clearly do not affect the Performance-Based (PB) design of the building.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
