Grenfell Tower: Regulations MUST change .

Fire industry and world media unite at FIREX 2017

Building regulations must be reassessed as part of the inquiry into the Grenfell tower fire, according to a panel of experts at FIREX International. In an emotional debate, which begun with a one-minute silence to commemorate the victims, Dennis Davis of the Fire Sector Federation (FSF) said the industry was creating the legacy for the next 50 years following the Grenfell tower fire. To a crowd of journalists and TV cameras he said: Time and time and time again, we are desperately worried about our building regulations, in particularly the approved documents falling behind what is going on within the built environment.

We must get over this.

2006 is the last review. Ten years is too long a gap, far too long a gap if you consider how much constriction and building has changed. The determination has to be as a sector that we ask very, very deep, searching questions how could this happen in our country, at this time? Special @itvnews report filmed at #FIREX2017. Fire industry condemn a failing safety culture and how it must be fixed. #GrenfellTower pic.twitter.com/gDBOyAvFZj IFSEC Global Editor (@ifsecglobal) June 23, 2017 Worrying trends Jim Glocking, Fire Protection Association, said the industry was seeing worrying trends associated with fires but was struggling enormously to get its voice heard. He said that the situation with central government was very difficult as there was no timeframe and you couldn t imagine holding the Olympics and not telling athletes when to be ready yet that is the situation we find ourselves in. Steve Seaber of the British Automatic Fire Sprinkler Association, said that there needed to be more regular reviews of legislation like in Australia, where it happened once a year. He said: We also need to make sure that regulatory changes are reflected in other parts of regulations. Misinformation Stephen MacKenzie, international fire risk and emergency planning expert, said there was an awful lot of misinformation and we needed to learn from the lessons of the past, as well as political responses.

He said: We need to look not just at regulations but at emergency and disaster responses from local and central government. We are see an erosion of fire research capacities in the UK need to look at longer-term secure funding streams. Cladding Niall Rowan of the Association for Specialist Fire Protection was one of the only panellists to make an outright comment about the cladding, often cited as a claimed cause of the extensive fire, saying it seems to have failed spectacularly . He said: I witnessed a number of videos from passers-by but I don t put a scapegoat on the cladding panels, there was also the foam we need to look at the whole system. He claimed though the panels weren t permitted under Approval Document B but that one of the desktop studies where they could be used, through a Building Control alliance of the local authority, inspectors and other bodies, could allow for them to be used. Although the panels aren t permitted, there is a very sophisticated test the desktop study that can be used, and that some of these haven t been as rigorous as they should have been. Rowan agreed though there was a lot of supposition about the fire, but that it was tombstone legislation that caused it unfortunately it takes somethings like this to make a difference. Skills Martin Harvey, Fire Industry Association, said there was also a real issue about competency skills and knowledge of the people installing fire protection systems. He said: You just need a man and a white van and he s suddenly an expert in installing fire systems.

Summing up, Harvey said that the most important element of the inquiry was that lessons must be learnt unlike the Lakanal House fire.

Detector testers to launch innovative new smoke detector tester at FIREX 2017

FIREX preview Detectortesters is unveiling Solo 365, a new smoke detector tester, at FIREX 2017. Solo 365 is lighter, quicker to test, compatible with a wider range of applications and almost impossible to over-apply, says the Hertfordshire-based company. A proximity sensor within the test cup triggers the generation of smoke by the auto-start feature, eliminating the risk of contamination and minimising smoke wastage.

And a new, flexible head and slimline design means Solo 365 can more easily access tight spaces and test more detectors. Responding to feedback from customers Detectortesters has added an auto LED torch for testing in dark areas. The torch automatically switches on when light levels drop. In common with other Detectortesters products, Solo 365 has been approved by leading detector manufacturers and is fully compliant with the latest standards and regulations. Detectortesters (AKA No Climb Products Ltd) has more than three decades experience in the design and manufacture of detector test equipment. It is also launching new aerosol cans which comply with forthcoming regulations affecting the use of some pressurised smoke aerosols for use in the Solo 330 dispenser. And the company is introducing a new Urban range of kit pitched at mobile engineers working on large sites and built-up areas. Solo 365 will be available later this month and will be the main focus of the Detectortesters stand atFIREX International. FIREX International takes place between 20-22 June 2017 at London ExCeL.

London fire: Councils and social landlords have ignored our warnings for years

GRENFELL TOWER FIRE We have a right to be very angry at the news about Grenfell Tower. I regularly sit in meetings with fire safety professionals, and their fury and frustration at the inaction of local councils and social landlords is palpable. We have been warning about the risks of a fire like this for years.

What we need to get people to take notice is a huge fire in a tower block they say. Well, here it is. There is an endemic fire safety problem in this type of housing stock. I have walked around tower blocks documenting and filming the fire safety breaches. I ve seen flats without fire doors, no emergency lighting or signage on fire doors and escape routes, broken fire rated glass, wedged-open fire doors, poor fire stopping around service hatches that breach compartmentation, no smoke seals in fire doors, rubbish and combustible material left in the common areas, and no information displayed on the specific fire plan of the building. #Grenfell Tower floor plan. “Improved” high density layout means one set of stairs for 24 stories of 120 apartments. #LondonFire pic.twitter.com/MHV3adB5Q7 Mark Ashley (@themarkashley) June 14, 2017 Deaf ears But that information appears to fall on deaf ears. Action must be taken now to address these issues. Our hearts go out to the residents of Grenfell Tower, their neighbours, friends and families, and the extraordinarily brave fire fighters and medics who are continuing to deal with the emergency. And to every local council and housing association I say, you know what to do, take action today. The next one could be tomorrow.

More than half of all tenants (58%) and over 70% of lower income tenants have no idea who the Responsible Person is for the building where they live Research for Fire Door Safety Week last year underlines some of the problems, in particular showing that the poorest in society continue to be at greatest risk from fire, with lower income tenants more concerned about fire safety where they live, less informed about how to protect themselves, and less able to move away from perceived danger. Just a third (35%) of the lowest income households renting flats say they have been given information on the emergency fire plan for the building where they live, compared to 88% of tenants on incomes over 100,000 a year. Those on incomes of 25,000 or less are much less likely to feel completely safe from fire (27%) than those on incomes above 80,000 (44%). But two out of every nine (22%) households with incomes under 25,000 living in rented flats who have concerns over fire safety are unable to move because they can t afford to. More than half of all tenants (58%) and over 70% of lower income tenants have no idea who the Responsible Person is for the building where they live the person to whom they should usually report their fire safety concerns. And worryingly, 15% of all tenants living in blocks of flats who have got fire safety concerns have never reported those concerns to anyone at all.

You can meet and greet with some of the 50 influencers over drinks at IFSEC International 2017. This networking event takes place between 14:30-15:30 in the Security Management Theatre on day three, 22 June.

IFSEC takes place at London ExCeL between 20-22 June 2017. Get your free badge now. The BSIA is also celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. It s a trio of 50s because we ve also designed the graphic below featuring all influencers based on the cover of the Beatles seminal Sgt. Pepper s Lonely Hearts Club Band album, which also celebrated its 50 th anniversary last month. This year the influencers are broken down into categories for the first time. We ve also added a special lifetime of influence tribute in recognition of the enormous contribution to the industry of Mike Tennent, founder of Tavcom Training, who sadly passed away last month. Click on you categories of interest below to find out who made the grade: Lifetime of influence tribute: Mike Tennent, Tavcom Training Security manufacturers/service providers Security management, education and thought leadership (UK and international) Cybersecurity (UK and international) Fire safety Installer/integrator excellence This year we revamped the process, only permitting nominations with explanations not votes this time round. An expert judging panel then rated nominations based on the nominations persuasiveness and their own knowledge about the nominee.

Judges also submitted their own nominations, which were similarly rated by other judges. In addition to the 50 influencers, there is an added category for installers, defined by excellence rather than influence. How do we define influential? This was anyone: Who has played a key role in driving technological innovation Who has been a driving force in changing regulation , standards/guidance or best practice Someone whose insights/opinions are widely respected and which are influential in shaping debate around industry issues Someone who has been instrumental in the success of the organisation or business they lead or are employed by Someone who has helped to raise the industry s profile or been an influential voice in the national media Our judges will be instructed to consider the nominees influence over the past five years, but to give greater weight to more recent achievements. Installers (fire and security) The criteria for installers was slightly different, being an individual not a company who has done some or all of the following: Consistently provided exceptional customer service Delivered a particular project, or many projects , to exceptionally high standards Been an innovator (eg, cutting average installation times/costs through adoption of new tech or change of process) Played a pivotal role in the success of their company (whether that is growing revenues, market share or reputation for excellence) Played a pivotal role in their company s diversification into new markets (eg IP, home automation, fire, etc) Visit Europe s only large-scale security event in 2017 IFSEC International is taking place at Excel London, 20 22 June 2017, here are 5 reasons you should attend: Exclusive hands-on access to over 10,000 brand new security solutions Network with over 27,000 security professionals Discounts of up to 30% exclusively for IFSEC 150 hours of seminars, workshops and keynote speeches A 1-2-1 meetings service to pre-book face to face meetings.

Multiple approvals for British and EU markets would cost the fire industry millions of pounds

FIREX 2017 IFSEC Global caught up with former Royal Navy firefighter Ian Moore about the FIA s new engineering qualifications, the innovations on show at FIREX 2017, his forthcoming talk at Europe s largest fire-safety show, and the need for a holistic approach to fire safety. Ian joined the FIA in September 2015 as the new CEO. Previously to this Ian was the Managing Director of several companies operating in the fire and security industry the most recent being Elmdene International and as a Vice President of Potter Signal.

Recently Chairman of the BSIA Export Council and BSIA Operating Board, member of several fire and security committees, he has a wealth of experience to bring. Having lived in Oman, Taiwan and UAE, Ian also brings strong International experience to support any export activities of the FIA and its members. IFSEC Global: How did you first become involved with fire safety? Ian Moore: Coming from being a weapons engineer in the Royal Navy, I misread the advertisement and thought it said Fire Arms and not Fire Alarms ! In all seriousness, I was fully trained as a firefighter in the Royal Navy and had responsibility on various ships for the fire detection, alarm and sprinkler systems fitted thought the ammunition magazines. Upon leaving the forces, it was by chance I saw the advertisement and the rest, as they say, is history. IG: Could you briefly outline what you plan to cover at FIREX? IM: The FIA s overriding message is that of raising the bar on professionalism. We believe by individual s professional qualifications and companies audited by a third party is the only way to ensure this happens.

In addition we want to promote what the FIA can do for its members which is multifaceted. IG: How much of an impact do you think the new FIA engineering qualifications will have on the skills crisis? IM: I believe it will have a huge impact as does most of the industry given the comments we have received during a recent market survey. We need to make the fire industry attractive to young entrants into the job market and having a formal qualification gained through training is a big step towards that goal. With the potential of a reduction in European skilled labour (due to BREXIT), it is very much the right time to be introducing these qualifications so that we do not get to a crisis point (although many would say we are at that point already). IG: What impact do you think Brexit might have on the fire industry and is there anything the industry can do to prepare or protect itself? IM: Brexit means different things to different companies and cannot be rounded off as good or bad. Once we know the true deals then companies will navigate themselves towards the best for them and their offering. Standards and compliance (specifically to EN) is critical and it is important Government/BSI ensure we don t end up in a position that manufacturers need multiple approvals to cover British and EU markets this would cost the industry millions of pounds in wasted fees/costs.

IG: Are there any recent fire safety innovations that you re particularly excited about? IM: There are a few and they will be on shown during FIREX. To name one that comes to mind, given that I have an imminent meeting on the subject, is Coltraco s constant monitoring of liquefied and non-liquefied gaseous extinguishing systems and water/air-tight integrity by using ultrasonic technology. It s great to see innovation, not just for innovation s sake, but something that can a make a real difference in ensuring life/property safety systems you are relying on are ready to deliver when required. IG: Is there anything that hasn t be spoken about in this Q&A that you think is important to get out to the public? IM: I believe we should always have a holistic view when it comes to fire safety. Each company will obviously promote their products/services as the right solution. Commercial decisions often reduce the option to fit belt and braces so the best solution for the money is sought. Getting a professional risk assessment will go a long way to guiding on the options so spend the time and money in ensuring you get the best advice/guidance as it will save you in the long run and will increase your chances of fitting an effective life /property safety solution.

7 facts you need to know about the new fire detection and alarm qualifications

This was met with a huge range of reactions online: our launch video views ramped up on YouTube, people retweeted the news on Twitter and shared it all over the place on Facebook. We also had the FIA team inbox filling up with requests for a hard copy of the new prospectus. We ve had the phone ringing with a tonne of questions since our big announcement and I m sure you want to know more about what these new qualifications entail, so here are seven facts you need to know about the new qualifications. #1 There are four new qualifications There is one qualification for each of the four main job roles within the fire detection and alarm servicing sector Designer, Installer, Maintainer, and Commissioner.

These all have official long titles set by the Awarding Organisation (which you can read in our new prospectus click to download), and will qualify you or your staff to an advanced level in each specialist area. The good news is that they are Level 3 on the Qualifications Curriculum Framework (QCF) in the UK, meaning they are equivalent to an A-Level. Due to differences in what qualification levels represent between the UK and Europe, a Level 3 qualification in the UK actually transfers to a Level 4 on the European Qualifications Framework one level higher than the Level specified as the minimum level of education in EN 16763, the standard that sets out a minimum level of education required for fire and security services technicians. Good news for those that want to show compliance to this standard! #2 They are all formally recognised by an Awarding Organisation The Fire Industry Association Awarding Organisation (FIA AO) is the new official awarding organisation for qualifications within the fire industry. The FIA AO gained recognition with all the relevant national regulators for qualifications in England (OFQUAL), Wales (QIW) and Northern Ireland (CCEA) in 2014 and is recognising the FIA training department to be the first training centre in the UK to offer the qualifications. embedded content #3 Each qualification has four units This should be easy to remember four separate qualifications, each with four units each. The handy part is that three of those four units are common to all four of the qualifications, and it is completion of the final unit that identifies the qualification you are awarded. Therefore, if you wanted to gain multiple qualifications, there shouldn t be a need to resit the three common units first just complete a different final unit. This handy flowchart explains it: insert flowchart from the brochure #4 Those taking the qualifications will learn A LOT more than before The current FIA training is robust and industry recognised it is what we are most famed for.

We d be hypocritical if we said our current training wasn t up to scratch it is, and still relevant. Learners still benefit from it daily. But after consulting with members, doing a survey, and listening to what you wanted, one thing was clear: you wanted the training to be longer, formalised, and include more content. So the new qualifications will do exactly that more content, more advanced knowledge building The new qualifications link to other aspects of FD&A systems not previously covered in current training courses, giving a rounder, more comprehensive level of knowledge and understanding amongst learners. Even if you have previously done training with us here at the FIA, it would be worth booking a qualification course when they become available as there is going to be a lot more on the syllabus that wasn t covered before. The added benefit of the qualification course is that you ll gain a proper bonafide nationally recognised qualification that will benefit not just you (or your staff), but will be an attractive offering to any future clients. #5 There is provision for those with additional needs We ve always done our best to provide for those with additional learning needs, e.g. dyslexia, but you should be reassured to know that if you tell us about any other additional needs on your application, we should be able to offer the support you need. We strive for equal opportunities and you should be reassured to know that no matter what your needs are, we should be able to accommodate you. So long as you inform us, there is absolutely no reason why you can t walk away with a qualification (effort required, of course!). #6 No prior learning or experience is needed to start the qualification pathway.

In order to start a qualification, you don t need to have completed any prior learning such as the current FIA training courses. The qualifications are suitable for all levels whether you are a complete beginner or you have been in the industry for some time. Even if you have previously completed courses or you have gained industry experience, getting a qualification will give you a higher level of understanding and further your development professionally (see #4 above we ve added so much more to the qualification). For those that are just starting out this will be a great opportunity for you to develop your knowledge and understanding to an advanced level, giving you the edge in the business world over others that have not yet qualified. #7 The first classes will be bookable after our launch in June. Our official launch will be at FIREX this year, 20-22 nd June at the ExCel, London. We will be having a full programme of seminars and talks that you can attend to find out more, plus a networking bar where you can come and have a drink and meet with FIA staff to discuss the qualifications in more detail. You can also pick up a prospectus but if you can t wait, you can download one here, or request a hard copy here.

95% of life safety installers say fire industry is falling short over training provision

The fire industry is fuelling the skills crisis in engineering by neglecting training provision, according to 95% of life safety installers. A study by Hochiki Europe, which polled hundreds of fire safety and emergency lighting installers from around Europe, also found that only 39% of installers work for a company that offers an apprenticeship programme. Just 17% reported that their employer offers a graduate programme to attract university leavers.

The Federation of Master Builders (FMB) recently released figures showing that the shortage of skills in the construction sector, which includes fire engineering, is at a four-year high. The skills gap both in our own sector and across the built environment has been a pressing concern for a number of years but, as the survey shows, our industry is doing too little to address the issue, said Ray Turner, general manager of operations at Hochiki Europe. If the industry is to continue to grow into the future, it is imperative that manufacturers and installers create the training opportunities necessary to equip the next generation with the skills they need to build a fulfilling career as life safety professionals. Lack of enthusiasm The study also identified a lack of enthusiasm among school leavers for the life safety sector as a potential career. Some 78% of respondents felt that young people know too little about what jobs are available in the industry, with 68% concerned that they don t view the sector as a desirable vocation. And 93% agreed that the sector had a responsibility to educate secondary school pupils on the range of life safety roles available and their merits in order to change perceptions. At the same time as creating great apprenticeship and graduate programmes to attract people to the sector, we need to do more to reach out to students while they are still at school and thinking about their future careers, and highlight the benefits of working in the industry, continued Ray Turner. Working closely with schools and universities as individual companies and in partnership with others in the industry will be crucial to help promote the array of career options, and the paths into the sector. Taking this kind of action now, we can ensure we have the expertise we need not just to thrive today, but to face new challenges tomorrow.
