ASSA ABLOY UK launches thought-provoking whitepaper in response to Hackitt’s Independent Review

ASSA ABLOY UK, the global leader in door opening solutions, has issued its whitepaper in response to Dame Judith Hackitt’s Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety, following the Grenfell Tower incident of 2017.
The whitepaper summarises practical recommendations derived from the key points made within the Independent Review and advises ways in which the industry can work together towards best practice.
Compartmentation has been highlighted as a key reason for the failures at Grenfell. Fire doors intended to stop and slow down the spread of fire were not performing as designed, due to failures in hardware specification and lack of fire door inspections.
The paper also highlights the importance of not only ensuring that third-party certification for fire door products is in place and specifications are fit for purpose, but also ensuring that they are installed correctly and maintained.
Tina Hughan, Marketing Director for ASSA ABLOY UK, said: “Our latest whitepaper has been issued to reflect on the findings of the Hackitt Review and make recommendations based on ASSA ABLOY’s many years’ of experience within the fire door industry.
“We believe we need to work collectively to create a cohesive industry that puts fire safety at the forefront of building design, construction and maintenance, and this paper suggests ways in which manufacturers, architects, specifiers, contractors, facility managers and end users can come together to ensure that thorough due diligence is carried out at each and every stage of a project where fire doors are involved.”
In addition to the whitepaper, ASSA ABLOY UK will host its annual fire door safety event in partnership with West Midlands Fire Service on Thursday 27th September, to support Fire Door Safety Week 2018 in raising the bar of fire door standards.


 

More Than Half A Century Of RoSPA Success For Lorien

Global engineering design and project management firm Lorien Engineering Solutions has been recognised for continuous achievement at the highest level at the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) Health and Safety Awards – for the 26th year running.
Burton on Trent-based Lorien has been presented with RoSPA’s second highly coveted Patron’s Award, as well as collecting its second Silver award for the Management Of Road Risk (MORR).
Introduced last year, the Patron’s Award is conferred on organisations that have achieved consecutive gold awards for 25 years or more.
Lorien Engineering Solutions, a division of GP Strategies Corporation, specialises in capital projects for food, brewing, drinks, life sciences, advanced manufacturing, logistics, and safety compliance.
Lorien’s health and safety manager Elliot Follows received the award at the RoSPA gala dinner at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole on 4 July.
Elliot said: “We are immensely proud to have been awarded a Patron’s Award for the second year in succession as it places Lorien in an elite club. This type of achievement is more than just filling in an application. It’s about recognition of a 365-day attention to the safety requirements of our projects, clients, staff and contractors, and ensuring we are always striving to be ‘better’.”
The RoSPA Awards scheme is open to businesses and organisations of all types and sizes from across the UK and overseas. Now in their 62nd year, the awards recognise achievement in health and safety management systems including practices such as leadership and workforce involvement.
Julia Small, RoSPA’s head of qualifications, awards and events, said: “The RoSPA Awards are the most highly-respected in the health and safety arena, with almost 2,000 entrants every year. The awards enable organisations to prove excellence in the workplace, demonstrating a commitment to the wellbeing of not only employees but all those who interact with it.”
Bill Treddenick, operations and compliance director at Lorien, added: “We’ve learned that good performance takes a great deal of dedication, continuous development of tools and of people, and not avoiding tough conversations where they are warranted. Elliot and his health and safety team at Lorien are dedicated to their work, well respected by colleagues, clients and contractors alike, and are very much deserving of this recognition.”
RoSPA’s awards mark achievement at merit, bronze, silver and gold levels. Gold medals, president’s awards and orders of distinction are presented to organisations sustaining the high standards of the gold level over consecutive years.
Lorien’s health and safety certifications and accreditations include BS OHSAS 18001, SafeContractor, Altius, BROWZ and EcoVadis, as well as being corporate supporters of RoSPA and The British Safety Council.
