Fire Safety Seminar: 22nd Nov 2018 London

We are running an afternoon seminar in a private members club in Covent Garden on fire safety which provides essential information for specifiers, end users, facilities management companies, consultants and contractors.  Spaces are limited so please e-mail [email protected] to book your space.  There have been many high-profile fire incidents in the last two years – but what have we learnt from them?  This seminar discusses important issues on fire safety and focuses on the key areas below.

Legislation, Compliance and Standards

We will highlight some of the key recommendations from the “Hackitt report” i.e. “Building a Safer Future – Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety”. We will discuss what you need to do to keep compliant with the law and provide information on fire safety legislation and fire system standards.

Maintenance and Competence

Under fire safety legislation any and all equipment installed for the purposes of fire safety must be maintained in good working order, which must be carried out by a competent person.  The importance of effective maintenance cannot be stressed enough, but not all maintenance contracts are equal.  We will discuss the important things to look for with fire system service providers and maintenance proposals.

Detecting Real Fires and Reducing False Alarms

It is vital that real fires are detected quickly to provide the fastest response to ensure the safety of all building occupants.  But it is also vitally important to minimize unwanted alarms as these can lead to complacency and waste fire service resources which can also lead to fines.  We will discuss various detection technology and measures to reduce unwanted alarms.  We will demonstrate false alarm immune detection where we offer our FAITH (False Alarm Immune TecHnology) guarantee.
