Re: Looking for Fire video clips

Have a look at this case study released by Scottish Fire Service
It's really useful and has many useful points where you can stop the video and discuss actions taken and what would the candidates do next

Re: Daily life of a H&S Professional

I am employed and based in London and look after the fire safety side of a large specialist portfolio of buildings based mainly in the UK and a few elsewhere across the world.

Re: Repeater Panels

TBH, I am not sure either. For a Cat L1 to 3 - even L4 system, I would say 1 x CIE (panel) per block, but as its only L5 for Automatic Opening Vents (AOV) and therefore it probably doesn't sound any alarm, I am pretty cool with the one panel, with appropriate signage at the other locations pointing ...

Re: Santa’s top safety tips - Office for Product Safety and Standards

I had almost forgotten about my home made go cart! It didn't need brakes - they were only for girls (no gender fluid/binary back then!) - and although I literally still have a scar from a go-cart crash 50+ years ago, it was due to a combination of the poor turning circle, too much speed and some ste...

Minor Gas Leaks in Very large Buildings

Its all so very easy to draw up an emergency plan for a gas leak effecting a premises. Open windows, isolate gas supplies and evacuate. Simple But what about very large premises and/or those where closing down business isn't quite as easy as most locations? Consider the £4.2 billion Terminal 5 at He...
