Fire alarm and detection qualifications: FIA reveals more details on pioneering training

skills crisis The FIA, in conjunction with the new awarding organisation for the fire industry, the FIA AO, is going to be releasing not one, but four new formal qualifications in fire detection and alarm systems later this summer. The new qualifications in fire detection and alarm systems will be officially launched at FIREX this year (20-22 nd June, ExCel, London). There will be a range of seminars and workshops to help you understand more about what is actually involved, as well as a large FIA networking bar, where you will be able to meet with FIA staff and ask questions 1:1 (over a beverage, if you like).

But before we talk about the actual content of the qualifications themselves what actually is the FIA AO? The FIA AO (Fire Industry Association Awarding Organisation) is a nationally regulated organisation that is externally quality assured by OFQUAL, QIW and CCEA specifically for the purpose of setting qualifications. The same regulators are responsible for the standards adhered to by the awarding bodies of GCSE s, A Levels and vocational qualifications studied through schools and colleges nationwide. Therefore, learners and business owners looking to embark on the new qualification pathway can be assured of the quality mark of the new qualifications and that the qualifications on offer are validated and properly approved with the relevant government authorised qualification bodies. Ian Gurling, Manager to the new FIA AO, explained how the qualifications were initialised: To get the qualifications off the ground, we started off with gaining recognition for the FIA with the regulators to be an awarding body an awarding organisation as they call us to essentially set up a new company within the FIA. The regulators wanted us to set it up outside of the FIA with its own offices, but I managed to persuade them through proving our integrity, and our corporate governance, that we could do this within the organisation and still have a training arm as well. Ian Gurling of the FIA Composition of the courses As for the qualifications themselves, the FIA AO has developed four qualifications each for the job roles of installer, maintainer, designer, and commissioner of fire detection and alarm systems. Each qualification is made up of four units, all of which have to have a pass recorded against them in order to achieve the qualification. The first unit is a foundation unit, which is covers the common aspects of fire safety across all four roles including legislation and guidance, technology and how they relate to each other.

we ve also tailored them to account for regional variations so if you re in Ireland for example we include IS 3218, and so on and so forth for the various standards and requirements, explained Gurling. Once you ve completed the foundation you can complete the other units in any order you want. We have a Health & Safety unit, and an environmental unit so in that the environmental unit we re covering the environmental impact of a fire alarm system; for example, how to transport and handle ionisation detector heads how to handle gaseous systems if you re working on them in any way. We ve also got the role specific advanced unit for the design, install, maintain, and commission. Once you ve got all four units recorded as a pass, you ve got your qualification. So what level of detail do the qualifications go into and what sort of technical content can we expect? The qualifications call for an in-depth technical knowledge, so it s not just a simple matter of knowing BS5839 or IS 3128 or 7671 actually say (or any other number of standards on the syllabus for the qualifications) technicians will have to be able to apply that knowledge. So it s not just a matter of knowing them and being able to read them, it s understanding how to interpret them as well. The qualifications also explore many other areas such as legislation and the different technologies involved in a fire detection and alarm system.

How does a point detector work? How does a beam detector or an aspirating detector work? What are the effects of a sound alarm system? What about the difference between bells and sounders? Voice alarm how does that work? A lot of depth of knowledge is going to be involved in the qualifications, said Gurling. The implications of the system as it is attached to the fabric of a building how does it affect passive protection, fire stopping? How does it affect or is affected by evacuation strategies? All of that is brought out in the new qualifications.

embedded content Knowing why as well as what and how The difference here is that technicians will be able to develop professionally much further than before, because of the level of thinking required for the qualification. No longer will technicians simply be able to perform the various tasks that they need to carry out they will be able to use their knowledge of standards and legislation to know why certain things need to be done a certain way. No longer is it a case of knowing what to do it is 2017 and it is all about knowing why you re doing it. The important thing to note here is that the study required for the qualification is much wider and the examinations are set externally by the Awarding Organisation, so it will be impossible to teach to the test , meaning that candidates undertaking the exam must really have absorbed the knowledge and understanding in order to pass. Unlike during any other form of training, where assessments are just a test, the qualification examinations are a much more formal process. The benefit here is clear: a formal exam means that candidates must demonstrate not just that they can parrot out the information they have been given ad nauseum , but be able to analyse, apply, and answer the examination questions correctly. Hopefully, this will mean that technicians will be able to do the same once they are out working in the field, using their new knowledge and deeper understanding to analyse and solve problems. We ve developed a system now, where the formal examinations going to be conducted electronically, said Gurling. Learners are going to be provided with a tablet, and they re going to be asked to log-in to their own assessment paper online.

That assessment paper will then be conducted live and the learner will receive a pass/fail result at the end of it. That pass/fail result is provisional only on possible necessity that I need to investigate the conduct of the exam, in which case, learners will be notified. Otherwise, after 2 weeks, that result is confirmed. Other FIA training If you re wondering about other forms of training currently available from the FIA, and whether it is still relevant, be in no doubt that it absolutely still is as beneficial to technicians in the fire industry as it ever was. The existing FIA units are incredibly valuable, said Gurling. They serve the industry very very well and they remain just as relevant and current as they ever have done. Technicians undertaking current FIA training courses will still gain indispensable knowledge that will help them on the road to success, and whilst they might receive a certificate of completion, that unfortunately doesn t make them qualified technicians . This is a phrase that gets bandied around a lot within the fire industry, but as from the launch of the new qualifications, only those that have actually undertaken the qualifications and passed successfully will be able to use the above moniker as a badge of proficiency and professionalism. Current FIA training courses remain popular due to their high level of technical knowledge and recognition within the industry among employers and technicians across the board.

The standard is high and well respected but the qualifications go one step further, increasing the amount of content delivered, and the amount of time spent in the classroom developing that knowledge and understanding. From now on, a higher bar has been set for the industry to increase the level of professionalism throughout. However, if you re still wondering whether the new qualifications will be right for you, the FIA are exhibiting at FIREX International (20-22 nd ) June this year, with a full programme of seminars and workshops where you can listen to presentations about the new qualifications, pick up a brochure, or drop by the FIA s networking bar to ask FIA staff a few questions in an informal setting.

Blocked fire exits lead to 100,000 fine for care home

Fire news round-up A care home in Somerset, England, has been fined 100,000 after fire doors and escape routes were blocked. Charges were brought against Almondsbury Care Ltd, in Burnham-on-Sea, following a routine inspection of staff accommodation. Fire safety officers said the care home had failed in its duty to protect staff.

District judge David Taylor told Taunton Magistrates Court the company knew its premises had a whole range of abundantly obvious failures. During the inspection, fire safety officers found the three-storey house did not have a sufficient fire detection and warning system in place. Fire exit doors could not be opened. The inspectors also found a lack of fire-resistant doors and found escape routes blocked by cupboards. Paul Bray, business safety manager of Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service, said: It was extremely fortunate that a fire did not occur at these premises. Almondsbury Care Ltd would have been well aware of the need to implement suitable fire safety measures yet failed to ensure the safety of those working for their company. The severity of the fines imposed by the court gives out a clear message to those who have control of a premises and show a disregard for the law and those they have a duty to protect. Fire engulfs Dubai skyscraper A fire raged through a 72 storey tower complex being built alongside Dubai s largest mall, on the morning of Sunday. Though authorities said the fire caused no injuries, three workers were rescued from the blazing structure, just a block away from the 63-story The Address Downtown Dubai hotel, which itself had caught alight back in 2015 on New Year s Eve.

The fire at The Address Residences Fountain Views complex began at around 5:30am on Sunday 2 April. Major General Rashid Thani al-Matrooshi, the director-general of Dubai Civil Defense, described the fire as accidental. It started in a parking level of the 72-story Fountain Views building. A cause has not been attributed. A witness at the scene said firefighting crews arrived quickly. However it took much of the morning to get the fire under control, which was punctuated by small explosions due to the propane gas and welding tanks in the building. The high-rise Fountain Views complex, which is being built by state-backed Dubai developer Emaar Properties, will eventually connect to the huge Dubai Mall across the street. It will hold over 750 apartments and a hotel when built. Emaar, which built both the Dubai Mall and the tower struck by the 2015 blaze, declined to comment.

Fires are not uncommon in skyscrapers in Dubai and other cities in the United Arab Emirates. Building and safety experts think a potential cause can be found in a popular type of cladding covering for the buildings, made of highly flammable materials. Fire blazes near Chessington World of Adventures Dozens of firefighters tackled a large fire at a disused village hall near to the Chessington World of Adventures theme park, on the outskirts of south-west London. Photos posted on social media showed thick smoke billowing into the sky and six fire engines lining the Leatherhead Road, just a few miles of the M25. Crews from Surbiton, New Malden and Kingston fire stations attended and colleagues from Surrey Fire and Rescue Service. The cause of the fire is under investigation. The blaze took about two hours to bring under control.

The site is a large site, which on its own may not be suitable in policies terms and any development would have to consider the wider landscape impacts and considerations. Interim Conclusion: It is considered that the site is ‘Deliverable’ and is an option whole / part site for development.

Land, water & Soil resources: The site is situated upon agricultural land grade 2. Development of the site would also have an impact upon the aquifer. Climate Change: The site is separated from the settlement boundary by one field.

The 2014 SHLAA considered that a larger site to be ‘non-deliverable’ due to the size of the development proposed. The SA indicates that the site is situated upon agricultural land and separated from the settlement boundary. Development / access would be dependent on other sites coming forward

Interim Conclusion: The site at this stage is considered ‘Deliverable’, though consideration would have to be given to access ans scale along with the appropriate level of development.

How to secure data in the healthcare industry

How To Secure Data In The Healthcare Industry

There were 105 security breaches of UK hospitals and other NHS organisations in the financial year 2014-2015 81% more than the previous period. There were also 21 breaches at private health companies, more than double the year before. Even more worryingly, 41% of all data breaches brought to the attention of the Information Commissioner s Office in the first quarter of 2016 were from the medical sector.

It appears that robust data protection and online security policies are more important than ever to protect the tens of millions of medical records on file. So how can healthcare data be secured? Here are a few top tips on how to secure data in the healthcare industry: Turn staff into your biggest asset Doctors, nurses, receptionists and all the other employees that make a healthcare system successful are both the sector s most important and highest risk assets. This is because 93% of data protection breaches are caused by human error, 95% of targeted attacks involve spear-phishing scams and, on average, IT support teams are understaffed by 42 members. Whether breaches are made with malicious intent or caused by accidental error, improved training and raised awareness can help reduce the likelihood of such circumstances occurring. Boost encryption levels Although it may seem secure, the average email is surprisingly easy to intercept, therefore a secure messaging system with end-to-end encryption is essential when transferring sensitive information such as medical records. Don t forget storage either! An investment in secure messaging services would be a waste if the information could easily be accessed at its resting end point. Data should be encrypted, partitioned and protected wherever it is stored, so even if a hacker does get in, they won t get their hands on all of the files and won t be able to read them.

Limit access to information You ve probably heard the saying what you don t know, won t hurt you . Well, limiting access works in a similar way keeping medical or other sensitive data on a need-to-know basis reduces the risk of a security breach. Adding multiple, password-protected levels of security within a system and providing only certain job roles or senior staff with authority to access this information will limit the resources available to cybercriminals and disgruntled staff. Monitor outbound communications Monitoring communications can be a controversial subject when it comes to staff and patient privacy, however the use of monitoring software should be used alongside a secure data transfer system to prevent the wrong kind of information getting out. Should this information get out, an advanced system like Maytech s will alert you and these messages can be accessed, edited, moved or deleted in minimal time to diminish the time this information is exposed. Secure large file transfers Sending a large number of files can be tricky; you can t use an average email messaging service as these have size limits. So how can large data transfers be done safely and securely? Compliant, cloud-based FTP infrastructures could be the answer. With no file size limits and fast transfer anywhere in the world with full activity logs, this is a tailored solution that many businesses are adopting.

There are dozens of ways the healthcare industry can secure its data and ensure there are no breaches; the above are just a few. One thing is for sure, with recent cases that have seen patient networks and NHS trusts fined hundreds of thousands of pounds for data security breaches, things can always be improved.
