Ben Bradford dispels a common myth relating to our interpretation of the term ‘significant findings’. George Orwell said “Myths which are believed in tend to become true”. If George Orwell was right this article should dispel one common myth in fire safety, and reduce the number of fire safety practitioners who believe it to be true. The common myth relates to our interpretation of the term ‘Significant findings’ as applied to fire risk assessments.
In the last few months, there have been a number of exciting developments here at BB7. This summer we are delighted to announce that BB7 is opening an office in Belfast, led by Ray Quinn. Ray joins the BB7 team with a wealth of experience in fire engineering.
Fire Strategies can sometimes fail to afford the attention to management that management deserves! The risk posed by the threat of fire, to people, property, mission continuity and the environment is often governed more by the quality of management within a premises than the level of fire protection, and thus Management must be considered as of equal importance to fire protection measures.
This is National safety week, the week in which fire safety in our homes is promoted. The place where we live with our beloved, the place we cherish so much and where, if asked, we are likely to say we feel the safest. The truth is; this place which we hold so dear, poses the greatest risk to us from a fire.
