Re: Ok this is an odd query concerning audible warnings

I don't really understand the issue here I am afraid. Is it that the door is sticking in the frame so opens with a noisy bang? Is it the way the person entering bursts in? Or is it the noise from the workshop suddenly raising the ambient noise level in the office when the door is opened? Why would a...

Re: Fire Strategy

You state that ..... a fire strategy document is not a legal requirement. However, it is being seen as “best practice” I totally agree with that statement and its about time it changed and became a regulatory requirement. I have seen some enforcement agencies require a strategy under Article 11 of t...

Re: Lith Ex fire Extinguishers

Be very careful when buying these extinguishers. My understanding is they can be effective in certain and rare circumstances, but are not the one size fits all solution for lithium batteries My last employers bought lithium batteries and altered them in a research workshop for use on specialist appl...

Re: Health and safety rage

SLJ95 - I get a feeling you may get a few (aka all) of us here recognising your experience and frustration. I have certainly been there. In my last job I had umpteen jumped up plum-in-mouth senior civil servant managers (Harrow and Eton alumni) telling me I didnt understand and I was "working a...

Re: Tuesday - 21 May 2024

........to meet with owners and Corporate team about a proposed 're-structure' :shock: There aren't many words that strike more fear in me more than 're-structure', 'review' and 'We need to go shopping' I hope there's no nasty surprises in that meeting - only good ones (pay rise??) I am part-retire...

Re: Can anyone help me ? Block of flats fire escape hindered

I am so sorry that this issue is causing you so much anxiety and to a point, I can understand why it might. But I may be able to reassure you - as far as I can without seeing your building - that all is fine. I am also sorry that it looks like you will lose the use of your balcony and I assume some ...

Re: fire doors in blocks of flats

Bear with me here as I have not been involved in FRAs in residential property for 15 years so am not really 100% confident or competent My understanding is if a leaseholder, the occupier should have a clause in the leasehold contract to comply with reasonable requests from the freeholder. The freeho...

Re: Healthcare premises

First of all, 1804 - I can see you in a Ronnie Corbett chair (and jumper) enthralling your grandchildren of tales from the mental health unit around an open fire :lol: To be honest, most of the 'events' I witnessed had an element of poor staffing and/or management associated with them. I worked most...

Re: LED lighting and migraines

We had lots of complaints- some with a medical bias- about the brightness of our office lighting when it was changed to LED about 7 years ago. The lighting designer had warned the estate team this might happen as the LED light is a different something (frequency, warmth or colour - I can't recall). ...

Re: Building Control Frustration

Oh yes, I have been there and got many scars from this attitude Building control are focused on Building Regs and the 'structure' if you will. The FRA is carried out by the person occupying the building and who understands their business and how they will use the premises Often the FRA may require d...
