Fire Safety Matters Podcast - Episode 37

07 May 2024

EPISODE 37 of the Fire Safety Matters Podcast features exclusive interviews with three special guests: Richard Hull (Professor of Chemistry and Fire Science in the School of Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences at the University of Central Lancashire), Martin Green (commercial training and support manager at Hochiki Europe in the UK) and Paul Tilbury, divisional manager for fire systems at distributor Dynamic CCTV.

As reported by Fire Safety Matters, one of Professor Richard Hull’s recent studies has exposed potential inadequacies in the regulations focused on the fire safety of upholstered furniture.

In conversation with Brian, Richard examines the main findings of these studies and also offers his considered views on the Government’s consultation around updating the Furniture and Furnishings (Fire) (Safety) Regulations 1988.

Brian also hears from Martin Green, who joined Hochiki Europe’s UK operation back in 2007 and has since held several sales-focused roles, among them regional sales manager for the South West and system sales manager.

On this occasion, Martin turns his attentions towards the very popular subject of hybrid wireless technology.

Finally, Brian chats with Paul Tilbury from distributor Dynamic CCTV. A graduate in the subject of Risk and Security Management from the University of Leicester and also a Fellow of the Institute of Sales Professionals,

Paul worked at Norfass, Chubb Fire and Security and Norbain before joining the ranks at Dynamic CCTV in 2016. Here, Paul examines why Dynamic CCTV chose to move into the fire domain and goes on to outline some of the services currently being offered by the business.

As always, Brian and Mark analyse several of the industry’s key news stories. This time around, there’s an assessment of the largest UK Fire and Rescue Service convoy to date being sent to help the firefighters of Ukraine, an update on the timelines for the Grenfell Tower Inquiry’s final report, detail concerning the ASFP’s new training recognition service and an appraisal of the shortlist for the Fire and Security Matters Awards.
