Hochiki Europe hosts online discussion focused on life safety in education sector
14 September 2020
LIFE SAFETY solutions developer Hochiki Europe has hosted a virtual roundtable in which experts discussed the pressing issues that surround life safety in the UK’s educational facilities. The online panel talk, available to watch online, comes as part of the manufacturer’s efforts to uphold high standards within the fire safety sector and support its industry partners in doing the same.
The experts involved in the roundtable were Paul Adams (marketing manager at Hochiki Europe who served as chair on the day), David Brant (contracts manager at the Fisk Group), Chris Connor (site manager for The Campion School), Neil Eves (systems manager at Hochiki Europe) and Will Lloyd, the Fire Industry Association’s technical manager.
The group recently worked together on installing a new life safety system at The Campion School which is located in Essex. The panel discussed the pressures education providers are facing in this new normal, in addition to some of the key factors that need to be taken into account when specifying and installing life safety systems in schools and universities.
Highlights of the discussion are available on YouTube and provide some key takeaways for installers, engineers and end users alike.
Paul Adams commented: “We’re planning to regularly host these events in order to bring various stakeholders together and uncover the pressures they all face and then see how we can continue to support them with our offering. Given the social distancing measures now in place, we decided that a virtual roundtable would be well suited to the current climate; which has also meant we can now subsequently share the event with a greater audience.”
