London Fire Brigade: Every day we see unsuitable fire risk assessments

FIREX 2017 Andy Jack, Head of Regulatory Enforcement at London Fire Brigade spoke to a packed audience at FIREX 2017 about the inadequate fire risk assessments he sees every day of the week . Taking pains to mention that he is not commenting on Grenfell Tower, which is currently under criminal investigation, Andy Jack spelled out the role of responsible persons in fire risk assessment. It is twenty years since fire risk assessment came in and ten years since reg 38 (or 16B) packs were introduced but has it made any difference?

he asked the audience. Responsible for what? The law spells out the needs for responsible persons, but responsible for what ? Article 9 from the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 explains that: The responsible person must make a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risks to which relevant persons are exposed for the purpose of identifying the measures they need to take to comply with the requirements and prohibitions imposed on them by the Order. However the law doesn t explain what responsible persons are responsible for and the suitable and sufficient assessment in article 9 means, very broad said Andy. Are these fire risk assessments suitable and sufficient? Andy Jack explained a number of assessments that, as an enforcer, he sees coming across his desk every day There are many cases where the fire risk assessor did not go to all parts of the building e.g. a locked manager s office or false ceilings, leaving areas of the building unchecked.It is common for assessors to ignore basements or top floors. Excuses can range from difficulty accessing the building to safety, but these things are are simply wrong.

In other cases, Andy sees assessors completely misconstruing what building is made of The assessment tells us that the premises are of brick and concrete constructuion, when it s actually made from timber frame with studwork. Too often Fire Information Packs don t get passed to the fire risk assessor who is missing out on a whole wealth of information . What have London Fire Brigade have learned? It is clear there is an inconsistent views on who is responsible and liable for fire risk assessments but you can t get rid of the duty, you can t saw it s nothing to do with you, or to mitigate your responsibility . Co-operation and co-ordination between the responsible person and their fire risk assessor is often is not all it might be and causing problems. Jack s advice to the industry is: Get co-operation working to get a better fire risk assessment, reduce risk to relevant persons, and reduce risk of litigation from the likes of me. I d rather I didn t have to do it at all, to be honest. There are plenty of things I d much rather do with my time than litigating.

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.

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.
