Fire Door Safety Week: Blake's Boss Earns His DipFD

Date: 6 September 2019

Fire Doors are life-savers, but often taken for granted and misused. Fire Door Safety Week aims to engage and educate building owners around how to use them properly. And Blake’s are supporting the campaign again this year.

What better time to announce that Ian is now Ian Blake, DipFD! After a lot of hard work he gained the high level qualification to prove competency in fitting and repairing fire doors.

The vital role of Fire Doors and continuous learning

The disaster at Grenfell has proved the real dangers of a “cost before compliance” approach to Fire Safety.

As we all know, the tragedy has now shaken up the Fire safety/ Life safety systems industry. Building owners and operators are now specifying or taking advice before ordering work.

Ian has long been worried about the poor standard of fire risk assessments and the perceptions of building owners about what should be done. In fact, before Grenfell, he gave up a large contract due to serious concerns about what Blake’s were being asked to do.

Ian says:

“Blake’s don’t do anything they’re not qualified to do.

Post Grenfell, more training and qualifications are being produced by several industry bodies. This is the first of several I have plans to embark on.”
