Re: Consultation launched on doubling maximum sentence for assaulting an emergency worker

I am TOTALLY against this law on the grounds of its discriminatery overtones If the same thug spits at a traffic warden on the monday and a firefighter on the Tuesday, the latter offence would in all practical ways be taken more seriously, especially in terms of sentencing How about if the traffic w...

Re: FRA 'tools'

I have had a look at iauditor and it really is an impressive bit of kit. I really would like to give an app a try, as my Jurassic method is slow, and I can see the benefit in an app/paper mix as Andyblue uses. But I often work in data halls, and other sensitive storage and technical areas where they...

Re: FRA 'tools'

I wish you well, but my experience is that I struggle with the use of dynamic tools such as iPads and PDAs for fire risk assessments.Ok, maybe I am a dinosaur but I prefer the freedom of scribbling on a paper aide memoire to help me ensure all areas are recorded and simply transfer those observation...

Sadly not Alexis. We use a commercial video conferencing system, so no blurring of the background possible. At least it was only a towel and not any of Mrs Messy's 'smalls' :)

Re: Saturday 4 July 2020

Really dull here in London but not that cold I have been working from home on a video meeting for a problem we have. Usually it would wait until Monday, but the WFH idea introduced for Covid is now impinging on days off. That has got to stop I was slightly distracted by the noise of a neighbour havi...

Re: test and trace risk to business

We have introduced dedicated teams in critical work where self distancing is not achievable. So these teams work in silos with special cleaning, handover and shift change measures are in place. Shift changes have been especially problematic, but are now well organised The size of the teams have been...

But we too find it difficult to cope with extreme heat (mainly anything over 8 deg.).

Heatwaves & Working During the Covid Crisis

Well after being a bit (non Covid related) poorly, I had three days back in the office on a phased return this week. I will accept, it might have been too soon :roll: It was a bit of a struggle, mainly as my new socially distanced desk is in an area where the air con is about as efficient as placing...

A Viking Fire Exit Sign.......

I was just sorting out some files on my PC to delete and I came across this one - a rather sad holiday snap of a fire exit sign in a Norwegian Viking museum. It made me chuckle so I thought I would share it here before deleting it https://www.lofotr.no/en/ I also had a photo of another bespoke illum...

Re: Fire Doors & Cabin Hooks....

So the scenario I have in mind is the usher hooks the door open for the 20 or 30 minutes whilst people enter the room. In this time they become aware of a commotion and go to investigate. It turns out to be a fire. The usher rushes off to raise the alarm but forgets the door is still open. Smoke po...
