Re: Use of IPAd and stylus - and Notes APP for taking notes and converting straight to Text

I have upgraded from a 2H pencil to a HB one, and now used a lined notepad rather than a reporters notebook.😉 I really do prefer pen and paper as it gives me absolute freedom to sketch plans. Plus other than losing my notes, there's no risk of an IT failing and wiping it The irony is I work a lot wi...

Re: Emergency doors must not be so locked or fastened...

I am not sure I understand the problem A door on a means of escape needs to be available and easy to open regardless of the buildings age. The method of opening is more dependant on the use of the building with a theatre requiring panic bolt fastenings (push bar) to cope with a crush situation and a...

Re: Holiday snaps

You sad bugger! Fancy taking photos like that on holiday. You wouldn't get me doing it!! ;)

That hose on the stairs looks really hideous and OTT for a lovely old building. I am glad we are a bit more subtle in the UK re looking after our heritage

Re: RRFSO/Fire Safety Order 2005-call for evidence

Bernicarey I saw this meeting too and was minded to complain. I work under a 20 min walk from where this Govt FS Expert speaker is based, but I am expected to travel to the midlands and shell out £100 + travel expenses to provide the FPA a profit? Nah, I don't think so! Post Grenfell, I was hoping f...

Re: Pan safe and spray safe

Spray safe? Wouldn't touch it. Aerosol extinguishers for car fires is never a great idea. The clumsy plumber & pathetic roofer may make their insurance void as some policies state a size and rating of an extinguisher that is needed to be available during hot works. The pan safe looks a better deal. ...

Re: British Standards [BSI]

Thanks Bernicarey. I wasn't aware of this site. I have access at work to virtually everything, but am not in the habit of carrying 2 tonnes of standards around with me! You would think that, in the interests of transparency and to allow staff and/or residents freedom to check that those who have saf...

Re: Fire Safety Manager role- Devon

Its a great looking job, and bearing in mind its location, not a bad salary

I love the West Country, and Mrs Messy would go there in a flash, but despite the crime, knives and congestion - I would miss London!

(Nurse, more medication for Mr Messy!!!) :)

Re: Capacity of office in terms of fire regs

For a business to rely on a 3rd party's fire escape in order to expand the business is fraught with difficulties Are they open exactly the same time as your company? And as has been mentioned, what happens if their demise becomes unoccupied? It can be done, but when I was a fire inspector in central...

Re: H&S Expo London

Its frustrating as I have workmates in Facilities who have nothing to do with fire safety going (or went today) but I simply cannot spare any time. I have 4 major projects. One is a large new fire alarm system, which has found to have massive failings which may leave a very large building with no fi...

Re: Ban the broom

The 'story' originated from The Sun so bound to be sensationalised. I would trust a H&S professional over a luddite employer and a member of the gutter press any day If this guy works alone from a 20 x 10m shed at the bottom of his garden, then the advice may be over the top, but if its a busy indu...
