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.

Security installer training academy: Robox Academy at IFSEC 2017

Manveer Rayit, owner of RoboxAcademy.com, speaks to IFSEC Global about exhibiting at IFSEC International 2017 in the run-up to the show. A former installer, Manveer is now running a training academy which helps installers market and grow their business. Robox Academy is exhibiting on stand C1432.

Get your free badge now. IFSEC Global: What are your plans for the show? Have you exhibited before? Manveer Singh: This is the first time exhibiting. Our plan is to showcase our academy targeted towards installers looking to grow their business. We ll also be handing out some useful marketing information for security installers. IG: What s your background? MS: I learnt about the security industry through my father who left his management role with BT to become a full time security installer in 1990. I was brought up watching him fit security systems and It taught me a lot about the nature of running your own business.

Fast forward 15 years, I left university and could not find a job so decided to become a CCTV Installer and found it incredibly rewarding. I was always fascinated with the products, so after three years I setup as a distributor and began supplying the trade with CCTV equipment. It was through this experience that I learnt how important it was for installers to understand how to manage their business. I think a lot of well qualified installers lose out due to a lack of attention on the marketing and management side. Whether it s advertising themselves, designing a sales system that helps them win more jobs or project management their installations. So many installers I used supply cut themselves short when it came to marketing themselves properly. This is when I had the first idea for an Academy that could teach business skills for installers who were primarily driven by technical expertise. I ve also been reading lots of articles about the shortage of engineers in the trade and our academy is planning on a campaign to help bring more people into the industry. IG: Please tell me about the things you have to offer the market?

MS: Our primary product is a training course which anyone from the trade can register and attend. The courses are specifically targeted towards business skills so you d learn things like: Advertising your business online Managing your projects more effectively Controlling your paperwork and finances We also have a solutions division which has successfully completed a number of business solutions since January. Our solution is company specific so includes Web Design, Branding and Logo Design and implementation of CRM software.

Director offers harrowing insight into workplace death

A harrowing story of a former construction director has offered an example of the need for health and safety vigilance on site at the Safety and Health Expo 2017. Matthew Hazelton, speaking on behalf of training specialist Proud2bSafe, spoke about his personal journey following a workplace incident where his brother died. He said the incident left him having to deal with things you don t think you will ever have to deal with and that he struggled with the attention of the media and organising the funeral for his brother.

Legal Hazelton said: While I was trying to deal with the personal side of things, I then had to realise I had to deal with the legal side of things. Director to me was a ridiculously posh term I had no idea what I was about to get myself into. He explained how he had meetings with the insurance company, which led to the HSE and the police involvement. Getting arrested and taken to a police station under cameras is not a nice feeling, he said. The legal process also meant that he couldn t speak to his work colleagues and friends as they weren t allowed the same barrister or solicitor and when you really want to be close to your mates, you are being dragged apart . Timeline He warned about timelines following such an event in his case it took six and a half years before the verdict of accidental death. You are being hidden away from everyone when you feel you haven t got anything to hide. We were doing and all the while as a business we were doing okay and we went to losing money, getting new business was a no-no, but old clients did look after us. Mental health Hazelton also talked about the personal toll on his own mental health.

Despite continuing in the construction industry, he could never get over the incident. I could never recreate the old construction firm vibe and I kept getting angrier. My wife had stood by me, but when she left, then the wheels really came off and I started drinking and doing drugs. Things came to a head when he had a collision with a transit van at 60mph. I didn t want to get out of bed, I didn t want to do anything. When I have to go to see my mother on mother s day I will always feel guilt. Consequences It s something I have to live with everyday as the client has to, and the main contractor does. He summed up that the effect it has is on a personal level and a legal level, and on his children and family. The effects will be felt for the rest of their lives.

Was there enough pre-planning by us? No. That is something I will have to live with. I really hope that none of you have to make those phone calls, because if you do, your lives will never, ever be the same again.

Want to export outside the UK in the defence and security markets?

Get some advice at IFSEC 2017

IFseC 2017 IFSEC Global asked the BSIA and Defence and Security Organisation (DSO) to answer some questions about their presence at IFSEC 2017. The Small Business Advisers from the Defence and Security Organisation (DSO) within the Department for International Trade (DIT) are in the DIT area of the BSIA Business Lounge to provide advice and support to UK companies seeking to export in the defence and security markets. They will highlight the various services and capabilities that DSO can offer and can put you in touch with various market, sector or military experts, as well as providing links to wider DIT.

They can also explain how DSO could help SMEs to enter these markets through its links with various UK prime companies and trade associations. IFSEC International runs between 20-22 June 2017 at London ExCeL. Visit the DIT area of the BSIA Business Lounge for exporting advice. Get your free badge now. IFSEC Global: What does BSIA and DSO offer the UK security sector? BSIA: As a Trade Challenge Partner (TCP) the BSIA is committed to helping the UK security sector export its products and services into the international markets. We work closely with the Department for International Trade (DIT) to promote the UK brand and as a TCP facilitate UK Pavilions in security exhibitions to showcase the industry s innovation, quality and experience. DSO: The Defence and Security Organisation, now part of the Department for International Trade, offers advice and assistance to the UK security sector to help them achieve export success. It has overall responsibility for promoting UK trade across the world, and attracting foreign investment to the UK.

The Organisation works with companies to help them export their security capabilities supported by closer working with the Home Office and other Government Departments. IG: What will DSO and BSIA be prioritising at IFSEC 2017? BSIA: As the premier exhibition for the security industry here in the UK, the BSIA hosts the international visitors lounge, bringing together international visitors and UK companies looking to develop partnerships. Working alongside UBM, the BSIA lounge offers visitors and exhibitors alike the opportunity to meet in an informal and relaxed environment to discuss opportunities and build relationships. DSO: The Defence and Security Organisation aims to get as many defence and security companies as possible exporting, and to achieve this, will be attending IFSEC to provide advice and guidance to security companies who wish to export. Available in the DIT area of the BSIA lounge, representatives of DSO s Small Business Unit will be able to provide specific advice to Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) on how to market security products. They can also provide details of events and activities they run aimed at introducing small companies to UK and overseas prime contractors. IG: What (export) support does DSO and BSIA offer to the UK security sector? BSIA: As a TCP the BSIA can draw down Tradeshow Access Partner (TAP) funding, allowing exhibitors in the UK Pavilion at international exhibitions the opportunity to claim up to 2,500 to offset the cost of exhibiting.

In addition, the BSIA will assist in designing and building stands and be onsite to help ensure exhibitors have a successful event. DSO: In addition to DSO s Small Business Unit providing advice to SMEs, DSO has a number of desk officers who have developed country expertise and well as active overseas engagements with foreign governments, politicians and officials. There are also two dedicated security specialists who can provide expert specialist export advice and practical assistance to security companies, and we also have in country police and security experts in some key markets who provide that vital on the ground intelligence. DSO also has a dedicated Events Team (a member of which will be at IFSEC) who can offer advice to companies on how to exhibit as part of a DIT DSO organised UK Pavilion. IG: What do you both see as the principal challenges for the UK security sector in 2017 and beyond? BSIA: The recent horrific terrorism events in the UK, France and Belgium have served as a wake-up call for businesses worldwide. This has resulted in organisations reviewing their physical and electronic security as well as tightening their security processes. More is now expected from the security they procure and the security solutions they already have in place, to enable businesses to stay ahead of the criminal fraternity and protect individuals and assets. This acts not only as a challenge for the UK sector but more importantly presents a real opportunity.

Being part of a UK Pavilion can help new exporters to dip their toe in the water before they fully commit to any given market. BSIA DSO: National security is the first priority of HMG, and being able to respond quickly to new and emerging threats and develop the technologies to counter them is the key challenge for the UK security sector. The UK has a strong and proud tradition in security innovation and that is due to its creative, dynamic and innovative SME Community, and it is due to our reputation as a world leader in manufacturing and services that other countries look to us to meet their capability requirements. IG: In your views how will the prospect of Brexit impact on the UK security sector? BSIA: The decision to leave the EU has created uncertainty for the UK. However, organisations should seize the opportunity to boost their global competitiveness by investing now in successful sector-based exporting strategies, focusing on the security industry s strengths of innovation, quality and experience. This will ensure the sector is best prepared for any global challenge it might face in the years ahead. DSO: We can not predict how Brexit will impact the UK security sector. But we can say that the Department for Exiting the European Union is leading on the negotiations for our departure and will ensure we get the best possible deal for the UK.

In the meantime, the UK is clear in its message to businesses and our international partners: We are open for business. IG: What key areas do UK security companies need to consider when embarking on export? BSIA: Exporting can be an unnerving experience for some companies. However, it is worth the effort. Exporting brings many benefits for UK businesses, not least of all increasing an organisation s sales revenue but also allowing companies to diversify their markets meaning that they become less dependent on any single market for sales. Being part of a UK Pavilion can help new exporters to dip their toe in the water before they fully commit to any given market. It also allows new exporters learn from more experienced companies who are part of the pavilion. Remember, there is a lot of advice available to companies; DiT, Trade Associations and Chambers of Commerce all offer advice and guidance on overseas markets to minimalise any risks. DSO: There is a wealth of information available on the DIT/Exporting is Great website to help companies export their products from those new to exporting and the occasional exporter to companies that regularly sell overseas.

Issues to consider include shipping and logistics, financial assistance, rules, regulations and restrictions, export opportunities and all these issues play a part in determining whether companies should export and if so, likely markets. IG: What key territories does DSO and BSIA recommend the UK exporting manufacturers consider? BSIA: Each year the BSIA conducts research on its members target markets. UAE, ASEAN and Europe are all key territories for its members. However, there are some interesting developments with other markets such as India and the USA becoming more attractive to UK security exporters. The BSIA has a list of shows it s facilitating or considering facilitating a UK Pavilion at. These include: IFSEC SE Asia IFSEC India Intersec Dubai Intersec Saudi ISC West DSO: There are numerous markets for security exports DSO can provide advice on the landscape of opportunities, which often depend on the nature of products. IG: How can interested IFSEC exhibitors engage with BSIA and DSO at IFSEC 2017? BSIA: The BSIA is exhibiting at IFSEC 2017 alongside DSO, and its staff are on hand to provide advice and guidance to exhibitors and visitors to the show.

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.

Businesses have been hacked whether they realise it or not, expert warns

There are two types of businesses those who know they ve been hacked and those who don t know they ve hacked a leading security expert has said. Stuart Rawling, director of business development at Pelco Schneider Electric, made the stark warning at the event s opening panel Current trends and future of the industry . Rawling said businesses must have a solid security plan in place which brings together both human and cyber elements.

There is a risk of getting an antivirus solution and hoping that will solve everything, said Rawling. An antivirus won t help you against a zero-day attack by its very definition it s unknown. The theme that rapidly-advancing security technology cannot be expected to tackle threats without a human element and robust planning was a key element of the session. Professor Martin Gill, perpetuity research & director at industry awards the OSPAs, warned that leaving it to technology and it hoping it will all be ok is a dangerous path for the industry. We should be holding on to the human element. I speak to a lot of offenders, and one said to me recently technology doesn t jump off a wall and arrest you . I just interviewed 12 heads of retail and 12 loss prevention directors. And when asked what their best security system is they all agree: their staff. Rawling agreed, saying he doesn t see a day coming soon where a physical security guard is not deployed.

Ultimately there still needs to be a human decision made on what to do, he said. A response plan still requires a human response. What do you do when something happens? That s where security fails most often the operating procedure, not the technology. Fellow panellist Tony Weeks, head of technical services at NSI, said that technology cannot be implemented without human expertise. No matter how advanced the technology, you will still need people to configure and look after the systems, he said. The most important consideration is an outstanding security policy which addresses all aspects, the panel agreed. When I speak to offenders about why they chose their target the answer is always the same because it was easy, said Gill. That hasn t changed over 30 years.

Fire doorsets: How do we know that the fire safety measures we put in place are compliant?

Gerda As a responsible person under the RR(FS)O, we want to know that the fire safety measures we put in place are compliant, perform and are durable. Furthermore we want to show that we have done our homework accordingly. This paper highlights how this can be achieved with the focus on fire doorsets.

Fire doorsets are an integral part of compartmentation in buildings. Legislation and guidance point towards designed and fully tested doorsets: Replacement with suitable, purpose-designed and tested doorset constructions is always preferable A fire doorset s function may differ dependent on the type of doorset. A flat entrance doorset will require different test standards to that of a cross corridor doorset. For the housing provider/specifier it is important to check the test report data be it fire resistance (EN1634-1/BS476 pt 22), smoke control (EN1634-3 / BS476 pt 31) security (PAS24 or similar with BS6375) , acoustics (EN ISO 10140-2) thermal insulation (EN ISO 10077) and so on. Performance tests Do ensure that the different performance tests correlate to the same design, composition and construction for the doorset. The installation of a fire doorset impacts on whether the doorset will actually perform as designed in the event of a fire. By choosing a certified installer, through a recognised body such as BM Trada, Firas, or LPCB and working with the manufacturer s instructions, this should ensure that the work is carried out properly. Assuming we have properly checked the fire doorset test report data and certification this can be logged. However, how do we verify and document that the installation is compliant?

Often at sign-off the work is complete and the finished item is visible only. Technology is now available with image based evidence for installation stages specific to a given doorset. This not only demonstrates compliance, it also provides an audit trail. Lower costs Under the RR(FS)O there is a requirement to maintain fire doorsets and ensure they are in good repair (section 38.1) The same technology can document on-going maintenance for the doorset as well as any unscheduled repairs needing to be carried out. This translates through to lower service provision costs for the building provider, whilst future-proofing the investment. Available to use with a smart enabled phone or tablet device it is entirely mobile with a downloadable app. Tailored to the specific doorset, it provides the DNA and full history of any changes or maintenance. Particularly beneficial in refurbishment, where doorset sizes and functionality may differ, all dimensions, components and important reference information is stored with that doorset s unique code and location. This assists the building provider in the fast identification and replacement of parts where needed all of which is a necessity for fire doorsets.

The Gerda G Smart system brings auditable compliance to all Gerda fire doorset ranges. It documents effective real-time installation and maintenance of fire doorsets and provides the DNA and life history of the doorset. We see that the fire safety measures fire doorsets can offer built-in compliance for asset management. FIREX International takes place between 20-22 June 2017 at London ExCeL.
