Kitchen Extract System Compliance

The Health & Safety Executive and industry and insurance guidance and regulations stipulate that kitchen extract systems should be kept maintained at a suitable level of cleanliness to minimise fire and other risks.

Furthermore, the BESA specification TR19® Grease ‘Fire Risk Management of Grease Accumulation within Kitchen Extraction Systems’ provides specific guidance on methods of measuring and defining cleanliness as a bench mark for good practice and fire risk control.

Building Managers are required to:

  • Identify and assess sources of risk
  • Prepare a scheme for preventing or controlling the risk
  • Appoint a person to be managerially responsible
  • Implement and manage precautions
  • Keep records of the precautions implemented

Swiftclean offer kitchen extract maintenance and fire risk control services to help you ensure that your kitchen remains healthy, safe, legal and compliant.

We are the only company recommended by AXA Insurance to their clients for this type of work.

We are also members of the BESCA Ventilation Hygiene Elite (VHE) Scheme which raises the bar of compliance with TR19® Grease and adds a level of regulation. The post clean certification supplied by a member of the scheme after a clean must clearly identify whether the clean performed was full or partial. If the clean was partial, the report must give clear reasons why.
