在当前的Covid-19危机期间,在当前的Covid-19危机期间完成消防安全维护和安装项目存在挑战,这是由于安装人员在安全访问网站上的困难。许多建筑项目停止锁定,这导致了大约50%的英国安装人员,我们与休假员工合作。然而,挑战不仅限于英国。与全球90多个国家的Kentec面板销售,我们在全球范围内看到了不同的挑战。

在整个这一危机中,消防安全仍然是至关重要的,并且由于这些关键参与者,如肯德克,是正确地认为基本企业。我们在整个目前的困难中继续制造生命安全系统,并一直是我们的使命,以确保在新装置举行的地方,我们的面板随时可供安装人员使用,以及持续维护的专业知识和技术支持。事实上,备件订单也在此期间一直很高,因为安装人员能够安全地完成轻微升级,最终用户利用此期限。

调整制造流程与政府指导方针保持一致,以便客户没有经历任何生命安全系统或部件的任何供应问题一直取得了重大成功。

关键基础设施

我们在这场危机期间,我们个人看到了我们行业领先的Sigma XT灭火器面板的销售增加,因为它在关键基础设施中被广泛应用于电信,数据中心和医疗保健。

调整制造流程与政府准则保持一致一直是一项重大成功

在锁定期间,以大量的人口从家里工作,依靠互联网进行业务和虚拟会议,它比以往任何时候都更加重要,宽带和电话服务没有损失。这意味着,高度可靠和强大的灭火系统对于保护基本工作者和重要的设备至关重要 - 不仅来自火灾的风险,而且来自诸如错误警报和灭火​​器释放的灾难性损害可能具有例如服务器上的灾难性损害客房设备。可以理解的是,这导致了这些部门的消防系统的相当大投资。

格拉斯哥的Louisa Jordan NHS设施

Louisa Jordan NHS Facility Glasgow的最近火灾安全装置 - 位于苏格兰活动校园(秒),提供超过500个Covid-19床铺 - 只是在锁定期间完成的基本消防安全工作的一个例子。Vipond 雷竞技在哪里下载Fire Protection Ltd总共安装了七个Sigma XT气体抑制面板,32个探测器位于电池内,用于10,000米2设施。该项目是在一个极其紧张的七天周期内完成的,在一个关键的医疗设施内提供了经验证的可靠性。

肯德席经历通过Covid-19运营的经验

我们了解到,通过详细的规划、沟通和协作,最好能度过这场危机,并为正在进行的设施提供支持。例如,在不安全或不可行的情况下,我们通过直接向分销商的客户发货来支持分销商。

通过这种危机经营,最好通过详细的规划,沟通和协作实现

我们自己的劳动力也在适应不断变化的工作模式和需求。在工厂里,从实际的角度来说,这意味着实施从早上6点到晚上10点的新轮班计划,以确保一次现场不会有太多人。我们有交错的到达、离开和休息时间,以减轻入口的任何风险,幸运的是,空间允许我们将食堂面积扩大,并将厕所数量从3个增加到10个。我们已经移动了工作台,以确保每个员工之间的安全距离,在工作流程使两米距离无法实现的情况下,我们安装了六英尺和八英尺屏幕。我们已向所有员工提供口罩,我们也在试用面罩,以进一步提供舒适和保护。我们的办公室工作人员都是在家里工作的,在有必要去办公室的地方,他们也同样坚持错开到达时间。

内部沟通至关重要,我非常自豪,非常感谢员工通过这一过程显示的积极性,接受性和支持。

我们还调整了我们的Kentec安装合作伙伴(KIP)计划,使其完全远程,以确保在安装人员需要时提供培训和支持。我们正在举办网络研讨会,作为另一个论坛,以解决远程安装程序的查询,我们的新系列Taktis面板具有高度先进的网络功能和支持远程监控的大量通信工具套件。因此,我们的安装人员必须充分了解如何帮助最终用户认识到此类面板可以带来的好处,并确保他们的安装成功完成。

展望新常态

在这场危机之后,远程监控将变得越来越重要

我们认为,在这场危机之后,远程监控将变得越来越重要,面板的先进通信能力将对安装人员和最终用户都至关重要。对于安装人员来说,它减少了现场所需的时间,因为他们可以远程访问系统,了解需要携带哪些设备或部件。类似地,对于终端用户,如果需要,他们可以远程访问系统,以检查场外的任何警报或查询。

它剩下的2020年将持续持续,但是,由于我们行业的基本性,我们有信心安装人员将能够快速轻松地返回这些项目这样做是安全可行的。沟通,协作和支持将继续在减轻我们未来的挑战“新的正常”中必不可少。

This means that highly reliable and robust fire extinguishing systems are essential to protect essential workers and vital equipment – not only from the risk of fire, but also from the catastrophic damage that false alarms and the release of extinguishant could have, for example, on server room equipment. Understandably, this has resulted in considerable investment in fire systems in these sectors. Glasgow’s Louisa Jordan NHS Facility The recent fire safety installation at the Louisa Jordan NHS Facility Glasgow – located at the Scottish Event Campus (SEC) which provides more than 500 COVID-19 beds – is just one example of essential fire safety work being completed during lockdown. Vipond Fire Protection Ltd installed a total of seven Sigma XT gas suppression panels, and 32 detectors located within the electrical room that serves the 10,000m2 facility. The project was completed in what was an extremely tight seven-day turnaround, delivering proven reliability within a crucial healthcare facility. Kentec's Experience Operating Through Covid-19 We have learned that operating through this crisis and supporting installations that are going ahead is best achieved through detailed planning, communication and collaboration. For example, we’re supporting our distributors by shipping directly to their customers, when it is not safe or feasible to open their warehouses. Operating through this crisis is best achieved through detailed planning, communication and collaboration Our own workforce is also adapting to changing work patterns and demands. In the factory, at a practical level, this has meant implementing new shifts schedules starting from six o’clock in the morning to ten o’clock at night to ensure there are never too many people on site at one time. We have staggered arrival, leaving and break times to mitigate any risks involved at entrances, and we were lucky that space allowed us to make the canteen area bigger and increase the number of toilets from three to ten. We have moved work benches to ensure a safe distance between each employee, and where workflows make two-metre distancing impossible we have installed six- and eight-foot screens. Face masks have been provided to all staff and we are also trialling face shields for further comfort and protection. Our office staff have worked from home, and where going to the office has been necessary, they have similarly adhered to staggered arrival times. Internal communication has been essential and I’m immensely proud and extremely thankful for the positivity, proactivity and support that employees have shown through this process. We have also adapted our Kentec Installation Partner (KIP) scheme to be fully remote to ensure training and support is there when it is needed for our installers. We are hosting webinars as another forum to solve installer queries remotely, and our new range of Taktis panels have highly advanced networking capabilities and a vast suite of communication tools that support remote monitoring. It is therefore critical that our installers fully understand how to help end users realise the benefits such panels can deliver and to ensure their installations are completed successfully. Looking Ahead To The New Normal Remote monitoring will become increasingly important beyond this crisis We feel that remote monitoring will become increasingly important beyond this crisis and the advanced communication capabilities of panels will be essential for both installers and end users alike. For installers it reduces the amount of time required on site, because they can access the system remotely to find out what equipment or parts they need to take with them. Similarly, for end users they can access systems remotely to check any alerts or queries off site if necessary. It remains to be seen how the rest of 2020 will pan out, but where projects have been necessarily put on hold, because of the essential nature of our industry we are confident that installers will be able to quickly and easily return to these projects when it is safe and feasible to do so. Communication, collaboration and support will continue to be essential in mitigating the challenges in our future ‘new normal.’

即使在先前退休的消防员,养老金成本仍然可管理
即使在先前退休的消防员,养老金成本仍然可管理

因为身体挑战造成收费,因为消防员往往在早期的年龄退休,而不是其他职业。工作场所残疾也有更大的可能性。消防员养老金计划往往更慷慨地抵消某些公共安全员工缺乏社会保障资格。此外,多年的退休转化为消防服务退休人员的医疗费用的总体上升。因此,根据国家和地方政府卓越中心(Slge)的分析,公共安全工人的养老金福利比其他政府雇员更昂贵。即便如此,消防员和警察的退休费用仅占城市,县和学区辖区的总支出占总支出 - 约2%。即使您专注于公共安全成本最重要的司法管辖区 - 城市和县级 - 负担仍然很小,平均仅有4.9%的城市支出的总支出和1.9%的县。养老金变化可能会影响消防员招聘养老金福利,警察和消防员工的任何退休或医疗保健计划的任何变化都可能对招聘足够的消防员产生负面影响,这已经是一个挑战的任何变化。例如,转移退休年龄将减少总雇员赔偿,这可能会对保留产生负面影响。抵消改变的工资增加将维持以前的水平的总补偿。 In 2016, the costs of pension benefits earned for police and fire personnel made up 15% of the payroll, compared with only 8% for non-public safety local employees. Annual retiree health care benefits made up 6% of payroll, compared to 4% for other employees. Analyzing Retirement Benefits Earlier retirement ages translate into longer retirement periods for these workers, which impact higher pension costs. Public safety employees are eligible for their benefits at younger ages than other groups, even though the average expected lifespans at retirement are similar. Pension benefit generosity is about 25% greater for police and fire employees, a difference that offsets the lack of Social Security coverage for some public safety employees. Any changes in retirement or medical care plans could negatively impact efforts to recruit enough firefighters, which are already a challenge “Local governments across the country are continually analyzing the retirement benefits provided to the public safety workforce, along with associated costs,” says Joshua Franzel, PhD., President and CEO of SLGE. “This research provides government leaders and policymakers with a national snapshot so they can make informed decisions.” Outdated Assumptions? Some evidence suggests that assumptions about earlier retirement ages for police and firefighters may be outdated. Despite the physical demands of the jobs, some local governments have sought to retain experienced employees using a Deferred Retirement Option Plan (DROP), which allows employees to claim pensions while continuing to work. Higher DROP participation rates – with some public safety employees working five years longer – suggest that employees may be able to stay on the job until later ages. Also, the U.S. Army (whose jobs can also be physically demanding) has raised its mandatory retirement age for active duty soldiers from 55 to 62. emphasizing employee health and fitness Use of technology can help to ease the physical burdens of public safety jobs, and an emphasis on employee health and fitness can also improve the picture. The analysis was conducted by CPR researchers Jean-Pierre Aubry, Associate Director of State and Local Research; and Kevin Wandrei, Research Associate. The research assesses the size of public safety retiree benefit costs using public safety employee data from the Public Plans Database, the U.S. Census Bureau, and government actuarial valuations.
