There are a number of unique hazards present in educational establishments which present several fire hazards. Some typical causes of fire in this sector may include:
Fortunately, ISE Fire is well positioned and experienced to identify these risks; create appropriate service plans; or to draft suitable fire training plans.Get in touch
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 is the primary legislation governing fire safety in non-domestic premises, including educational establishments. The order places a duty on the responsible person (usually the owner or employer) to carry out a fire risk assessment, implement appropriate fire safety measures, and provide adequate training to staff and students. There is a field of supporting literature which has helped create the standards for fire safety expected in the UK educational sector, such as the Fire Safety Risk Assessment: Educational Premises guide.
We regularly visit areas around the Midlands and have a distribution of ISE Fire locations throughout the region. This makes us the ideal choice for routine servicing, training, and other specific local needs.
ISE Fire Products & Services Ltd. have been carrying out the annual inspection and servicing of fire fighting equipment at Uppingham School since 2008. I am impressed by the professional and friendly manner in which ISE present themselves.
When ISE started working at the School, in addition to the servicing etc., they compiled a detailed inventory of the School’s fire fighting equipment. With the assistance of ISE [Fire], we have carried out a complete revision and rationalisation of fire fighting equipment across the School’s 70+ buildings.
The engineer carrying out the work, who has remained the same from day one, is very competent and conscientious in his work. Both the engineer and ISE as a company, provide advice and make recommendations but without the “hard sell” techniques experienced with some of the national contractors.
ISE have provided the School with good quality fire safety signage, including customised fire action notices, to our own design, to a very good standard and at very competitive prices.
We have recently started to use ISE to provide fire fighting equipment training to teachers and support staff and this has been very well received being considered both informative and fun! The Trainer in particular has been singled out by teaching staff as being very good.
It is my hope that the excellent relationship built up between ISE and Uppingham over the past 4 years continues to develop and go from strength to strength.
