With many occupants in educational buildings, it is essential for comprehensive Fire and Security systems that encompass both active and passive preventative measures.
With most educational buildings occupied by youth, it is imperative for Fire systems to efficiently reduce the spread of fires for students’ effective evacuation and their safeguarding.
Why Fire Protection in Education?
The use of fire protection strategies within the education sector cannot be emphasised enough. With educational buildings often spanning a large number, it is important that each building of your education site is optimised against the threat of a fire.
The education sector spans numerous industries, including schools, colleges, universities and educational support facilities. As such, it is essential to factor any influences that may impact your fire strategy.
Within the educational sector, flammable chemicals may often be found and a large number of electrical appliances, wires, and plugs which all pose fire hazards.
Many occupants, many of which are often underage, must factor into fire strategies alongside these variables. Providing easily understandable yet comprehensive strategies is crucial in achieving this, they provide the safe evacuation of young students and ensure their continual safeguarding.
Why Security in Education?
Safeguarding in an education setting is essential and competent security measures further safeguard individuals throughout their building occupancy.
Due to the sensitive nature of safeguarding, laws surround CCTV within schools and their utilisation. Therefore, it is essential to ensure your security solutions are effective yet compliant with regulations, further securing occupants’ safeguarding.
By using intercoms, CCTV and where applicable access control, staff and security within the education sector can monitor entrance points and who is coming or leaving the premises.
Doing so greatly limits the threat of violence, abduction, and theft by quick identification of the threat allowing security to deal with the situation.
