Re: Fire suppression query

Yeah, I'm thinking of an ad hoc usage for places that are already high risk due to factors that are out of our control...

Fire suppression query

Hi all, I'm trying to find more info on a product that I think was mentioned here within the last 18 months. It's a standalone tube of extinguishing substance that is affixed within electrical supply cabinets and similar set-up. When exposed to heat, the tube ruptures and spills the chemical, exting...

Re: Responsible Person Legionella course

Not sure how much use this will be, but: I took a three day course but had to travel down from Glasgow to Derby to take part. It was an IOSH-accredited course by ISAC I think, but don't have my documentation here to check.. In retrospect, although the course was good, having not come from a plumbing...

Re: Exoskeletons

I agree that a solution has been developed for a problem that has yet to be identified Being a fan of 80s sci-fi, I'd argue that the potential problem has been invented, it's just that it's fictional. Seriously though, call me a cynic but I'm going to assume that this expensive 'solution' will turn...

Re: PPE - Safety Boots

In my life, I've spent a lot of time on internet forums, but I think that this has got to be the biggest 'necropost' I've ever seen.

It's been so long that inflation will have rendered the original posts invalid! :D

Re: Residential Fire Safety

This is pretty common at the moment. A lot of landlords seem reluctant to get the heck off of the fence and decide whether it's a stay-put 'delayed evacuation' policy or not. As far as I've always understood things, if there are no serious issues identified and it's purpose-built accommodation, then...

Re: Residential Fire Safety

Again, not particularly unusual, but they should be loud enough to be heard in the flats, otherwise why have them. Just to add one thought: Unless there is a policy for all persons to evacuate the building in the event the alarm system is activated, I see no real need for them to be audible within ...

More automation is great, it means that we'll all be working less hours for the same (or better) standard of living...
