Do you trust the fire safety in your organisation?

Fire 04th September 18

I came across the article: Top bosses ‘don’t trust fire safety’ which for me, is unsurprising with recent events that have happened, most notably the Grenfell disaster. It would appear that management officials no longer have any faith in the current processes in place to ensure that people are safe. The article states:

Major fire hazards are threatening safety in hospitals, schools and other public buildings, senior managers revealed yesterday. Days before the Grenfell Tower disaster inquiry resumes, a survey of 500 “key decision-makers” for security products company Allegion showed almost half did not trust their properties’ safety procedures and 45 per cent believed difficulties were caused by design faults.

The response to me appears very logical, that there has been some high profile catastrophes recently where the dangers of fire have perhaps been underestimated and now seniors want to ensure that doesn’t happen again. Whatever the reason for assessing this, it can only be welcomed as a positive move and hopefully enhance the safety of all.

Sadly there has been good reason to reduce the levels of trust in fire safety by the high profile events that have occurred. From both a moral standpoint and an ROI standpoint it makes sense that these safety concerns are addressed sooner rather than later. Repairing the potential damage caused will be a greater cost and keeping people safe is paramount.

So how does this apply to us here at Thinking Software?

For those of you unfamiliar with us, here at Thinking Software we develop and support Workforce Management, Time & Attendance Software. MUSTERD is a product that has stemmed from dated ways that this can be addressed in Time & Attendance and Access Control by producing unreliable roll call reports.

Whatever your situation there is a MUSTERD solution for you. Sweep & Clear enables you to ensure the safety of areas within the organisation. Signs are located around the premesis and in the event of an Evacuation Safety Marshall’s will scan the signs to communicate what is happening in a particular location, which is perfect for organisations with lots of visitors like Hospitals, Sports Arenas or Music Venues.

MUSTERD can link to Access Control Security Systems constantly working in the background highlighting the movements of all employees. It reads directly from the Access Control SQL database meaning you get to utlise the existing product you have, which then becomes imperative in the event that the alarm is raised.

With reference to the article specifically, the sole purpose of MUSTERD is to bring Roll Call into the 21st century. We innovate in all other works of life pushing technology to the limit to create solutions that enhance our working environment. The article states Fire Safety is currently not trusted, MUSTERD is designed to give you greater control in the event of a disaster.

Sadly, however hard we try, the likelihood of us creating a premises that simply isn’t vulnerable to any form of fire or disaster is highly unlikely. That is why the best thing you can do as an organisation is plan for the worst and hope for the best. In any form of scenario where your location needs to be evacuated MUSTERD will be your key ally.

Whether it’s zones your looking to understand the status of, or specific individuals being pulled from the Access Control database, advising of their movements in real-time MUSTERD is the system for you. Communicating with the cloud ensures this is the case and acts at the perfect tool to help you communicate safety information in a frantic scenario.
