Re: Sun 20 Sept 2020

Its 23c here (but feels like 24c according to the BBC) Even better than that, I have finished wiring up a new bathroom extractor fan and new shower isolated switch and have been given all afternoon off from Mrs Messy for good behaviour. As lovely as that sounds, I smell a rat ;) Have a loverly after...

Re: Staff training / Care Homes & Hospice

HTMs are aimed at NHS Healthcare establishments and not 'mandatory' in private settings. However, why reinvent the wheel? I was a Hospital FS Advisor for 3 Mental Health Trusts and we had a constant battle with the bean-counters to reduce fire awareness to the absolute bone to save cash. One Trust's...

Re: Now questioning my ability to carry out FRA

Can I ask again S&S, what sort of notice did you receive . It is relevant If you think about fire service FS inspecting officers as food or film critics and the assessors as being chefs or film directors One role needs much more skill and aptitude than the other. A chef can take years to perfect the...

Re: Fire exit route sigange - does it need to illuminated or luminous for use outside on a earthworks project

I totally agree with the above. Signs might be useful, especially if the earthworks mean that the escape route may change, but procedures such as a walk around briefing and/or plan of the site may be just as useful. Numbers of people expected to use the route may influence your decision, and you may...

Re: Now questioning my ability to carry out FRA

Did the notice (what sort of Notice was it?) they issued mention that under Article 9, the FRA was not suitable and sufficient? If not, turn the page, there's nothing to see here. I have found things years and many reviews after I first assessed a premises. Do I feel bad or embarrassed? God yes, but...

H&S Advisor Wembley Stadium

Just saw this rather interesting job vacancy - H&S Advisor for Wembley Stadium (under a H&S Manager). No salary mentioned, but I expect you would get a hefty transfer fee :roll: Unique job for someone living in London or the Home Counties https://careers.thefa.com/jobs/vacancy/health-and-safety-advi...

What on earth is happening in the world when a captain, crew and company are penalised for an act of humanity? 😒

Re: Fire Alarms - block of flats (pre 1991)

I am aware that there has been massive changes in guidance and protocol and do not feel c...

Re: Welfare facilities and social distancing measures

Surely taking a middle cubicle out in a bank of three is excessive isnt it?

Our total covid capacity takes into account toilets and tea points and not just desk space. As a result, we are running at just a little more than 30% capacity, with the rest working from home on a rota
