CHUBB SYSTEMS Limited has achieved the ISO 45001, a new global standard for occupational health and safety (H&S), designed to increase safety, prevent work-related injuries and improve employee health and well-being at work.

Graeme Heanan, managing director at Chubb Systems, said employee and customer safety is the business’ number one priority, “We have a world-class health and safety record, and meeting the ISO 45001 demonstrates our company’s commitment to proactive risk prevention, innovation and continual improvement – enabling us to grow as a business.”

This accreditation further recognises Chubb Systems’ ability, as a leading security systems integrator in critical national infrastructure sectors, to safely deliver leading-edge technology solutions in high-risk environments.

Nichola Maher, EH&S manager, Chubb Systems, said implementing ISO 45001 has been challenging, but extremely worthwhile, “We must never become complacent about safety and the environment or lose sight of ensuring our customers safety.”

Chubb secures award 13/08/2018

CHUBB FIRE & Security Limited has won the Fire Safety & Security award at the Electrical Review Excellence Awards 2018 for its fire detection system at the Queen’s Hotel in Penzance.

The Awards recognise projects that embrace the latest in electrical engineering and the judges were looking for evidence of how the key objectives were fulfilled.

The Queen’s Hotel turned to Chubb after a series of local fires led them to review their fire safety requirements across the whole estate. Chubb installed more than 400 wireless detectors all networked to the fire detection panel in the hotels’ main reception. It is a fully-zoned, addressable system that gives hotel management immediate visibility on where an alarm has been generated. A wireless system was chosen to minimise the cabling work that would have meant the temporary closure of the hotel. Installation was phased so at no stage was the hotel without fire protection.

Chubb Installs CCTV for Council 01/06/2018

CHUBB FIRE and Security is helping Keswick Town Council to combat crime and reduce anti-social behaviour in the town centre with the installation of a new high-definition CCTV system at The Moot Hall.

The Moot Hall, originally built in 1571, is a Grade II-listed building located at the southern end of the main street in Keswick town centre. It was identified by the council as the best location for a new CCTV system due to the number of crimes in Keswick tied to the market square.

Chubb has installed four high-definition CCTV cameras, positioning one camera on each of the corners of the building to maximise the coverage area. Designated Keswick Town Council employees can access the footage remotely at any time as required. Keswick Town Council Town Clerk Lynda Walker, said: “We selected Chubb as we have only ever heard good reviews and they were able to provide us with a high-quality and cost effective system.”

Chubb Adds High-Tech Security in New Building at Newcastle University 13/03/2018

STUDENTS, STAFF and property at Newcastle University’s new Urban Sciences Building are now protected with a sophisticated access control system, provided and installed by Chubb Fire & Security.

Chubb’s access control solution with an integrated intruder alarm is already proven in all other buildings on Newcastle University’s campus and with its ability to integrate with the University’s wider security management system, it was a perfect choice.

With the new system, the estates management team is able to print ID passes, restrict and monitor access, and be highly responsive to potential incidents. It is also able to review arrangements for events and monitor door usage. The Urban Sciences Building has a total of 60 doors, requiring separate zoning and access restrictions for undergraduates, postgraduates, staff and visitors. 

Prior to the building opening, Chubb delivered training to the estates management team to get the most out of the system. “The training was extremely useful and a part of the excellent service and expert advice we have come to expect from Chubb,” added Johnston.

Newcastle University is a Russell Group university home to over 26,000 students and nearly 6,000 staff.

Chubb's Top 12 Tips to Stay Safe this Festive Season 15/12/2017

THE ONSET of winter and the festive season bring added fire and security risks and Chubb Fire & Security Limited wants to help keep homes, families and their belongings safe and secure.

Chubb, a leading provider of security and fire-safety solutions, is a part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX). 

According to the Home Office’s Fire Statistics Monitor, there were 183 fire-related fatalities from accidental dwelling fires in England between April 2016 and March 2017, representing 70 percent of all fire-related fatalities in England. The Office for National Statistics reported over 235,000 domestic burglaries between July 2016 and June 2017, with 2,534 reported as ‘aggravated burglaries.’ To help in the prevention of crime and the prevention, detection and containment of fire, Chubb offers this 12-point guide to staying safe over the festive period: 

1.    Fit a smoke alarm. Regularly test your smoke alarm and change the batteries at least once a year.

2.    Don’t place your Christmas tree by a log-fire, radiator or heater. Turn all Christmas tree lights off before going to bed at night.

3.    In case of a fire, have a plan. Make sure you have more than one escape route should your exit become blocked. 

4.    If using an electric blanket, make sure the cord isn’t frayed or worn before plugging it in. Never leave it on unsupervised for longer than 15 minutes.

5.    In the kitchen, keep a fire blanket or suitable extinguisher handy.

6.    Never leave fires, candles or any form of exposed flame in the home unattended and ensure children are always supervised when around fires, candles or matches.

7.    If using gas-, oil- or coal-burning appliances, use a carbon monoxide (CO) alarm to be quickly alerted of CO dangers. Ensure the home is properly ventilated and equipment is regularly serviced and maintained. 

8.    Going away? Do not post on social media about your travel plans and install a timer to switch lights on and off so that the house appears to be occupied. Ask to redirect your post, cancel any newspaper and milk deliveries and ask your neighbor to take any packages away.

9.    Do not keep keys in a place that is visible from outside, such as hanging on hooks, and do not hide keys near a door, such as under the doormat, as thieves know to check these places.

10. Install a motion-activated exterior light to welcome you home after dark – and deter unwanted visitors. 

11. Outside of the home, be aware of your surroundings and take care of high-value belongings like mobile phones, which have become a popular target for thieves.

12. Exercise common sense.

“Incidents of domestic burglary are more common than many would think. By applying common sense and following our list of basic security precautions, we hope people and their properties are safer this winter,” said Jane Garland, marketing and communications, Chubb Fire & Security. 

“We also urge everyone to be mindful of the devastating effects a house fire can have,” Garland added. “With there being such a high percentage of fire-related fatalities happening in homes, it is critical that domestic fire safety is not overlooked. Installing a fire or smoke alarm is one of the easiest measures to prevent a potentially devastating incident from taking place.”
