Agenda - Day 1
We will cover the latest standards and regulation changes impacting domestic fire and CO detection, looking at how to remotely manage systems and data using IOT
The traditional paper fire logbook is easily and often misplaced, prone to alterations, and ironically flammable. In the event of a fire, your physical logbook will get destroyed and along with it, your proof of fire safety compliance. The industry is moving to the cheaper, smarter, and easier Fire e-Logbook – find out how to set one up in under 2 minutes in this webinar.
Legislative standards for residential fire safety extensively detail requirements such as material type, compartmentation, levels of fire detection, escape lighting etc. Non occupied spaces such as roof voids containing solar or plant equipment, lift motor rooms, electrical intake, distribution, and riser spaces, bin stores etc are afforded only bare minimum. In a commercial environment, the opposite applies, driven by either risk assessment and or insurers requirements, that consider these areas as ‘mission critical’, therefore warranting the investment in a fire suppression system. A fire is still a fire, so why the difference?
Should housing developers, and providers adopt a risk based, pragmatic, approach for protection of these non-occupied spaces in residential premises, (in particular high rise or complex buildings)? Or just live with the risk of environmental & reputational damage, wasted time, effort, resource, re-housing, and all the cost associated with salvage disruption following a fire event?
This introduction is intended to demonstrate how this may be achieved using FirePro, fire suppression technology, without water, pipes, pressurised gas or cylinders.
Adam will explore why PEEPs are important and how they have come into focus post Grenfell
Agenda - Day 2
Guidance on fire alarms for purpose-built high rise residential buildings says the likelihood of false alarms means communal fire systems are a bad idea. However, this means the FRS response may be unnecessarily delayed giving time for a fire to spread. Andy Scott explores an alternative approach based on the use of false alarm resistant fire detectors in flats connected to a communal system via ‘Hush Buttons’ that can be operated whilst standing at floor level. This can minimise the chance of false alarms but ensure the emergency services are called promptly if there is a real fire, which is especially important for disabled residents.
When you walk into a building, do you know if it's compliant or not? Most likely, the answer is no. What if you lived in a world where the tenants, owners and contractors have complete visibility into the compliance of their building. What if there was a way to capture your assets easily? Welcome to the future of the fire industry with real-time, transparent compliance data at both the building and the asset
This seminar will explain the key benefits of protecting large premises with optical beam smoke detection. These premises can include warehouses, factories, or buildings with high ceilings with the emphasis on the Installer of the Beam Detectors.
In this session, you will learn how to use optical beam smoke detection to protect open spaces such as warehouses and factories and we explain how using optical beam smoke detection can save money and reduce false alarms in locations with high ceilings where point detectors would be difficult to install and maintain.
We will cover the pros and cons of other beam smoke detectors, the benefits of installing a low-level controller and when should you use and not use point, aspirating or beam smoke detection equipment. Wiring to the Fire Panel, Commissioning, Testing of the Beam will covered as well as the ‘Golden Rules’ of Beam Installation.
Optical beam smoke detection is a device that uses a projected beam of light to detect smoke across large areas, typically as an indicator of fire. They are used to detect fires in buildings where standard point smoke detectors would either be uneconomical or restricted for use by the height of the building.
There have been many changes recently to fire legislation and guidance. This CPD will present an overview of the recent changes and explain where we have come from and how they might affect you, what you might need to do to comply with changed legislation and how they might affect you in the real world
Niall will outline how the Building Safety Act impacts on the supply of safety critical products and how the National Regulator for Construction Products will operate to remove unsafe construction products from the market.
Justin Maltby-Smith, Managing Director of BAFE, will discuss the changing outlook of third-party certification and evidencing competency in the life safety arena. During this session, Dr Maltby-Smith will also provide an update on BAFE and changes being made in strengthening criteria to best evidence the skills, knowledge, expertise, and behaviours required to work in this field.
