The installation is designed to improve the centre’s evacuation procedures and the future implementation of loop powered base sounders throughout the building. Designers and installers, Pyrotec Systems, chose the fire control panels and repeater units to replace existing addressable fire alarm control panels.  According to Kentec, the nine Syncro analogue addressable fire control panels and six repeater units will enable the new network to provide a complete building system solution with flexible cause and effect capabilities. Around 6500 babies are born each year at the centre, which cares for women with difficult pregnancies or babies who need special care. The hospital’s delivery suite is designed to encourage women to remain mobile during labour.

Focusing on customers that actively manage PPE, the survey revealed that managing PPE stock was an issue for 49%, as often no monitoring system exists. A third of respondents said that operators struggle to identify the correct PPE for the process at hand.    Nearly 27% of respondents identified the need to ensure that PPE is correctly worn, stating that operators sometimes choose not to wear PPE correctly as they feel it ‘hinders productivity’.  In response, Seton has designed Sound Awareness Stations, offering instructions of how to correctly fit ear plugs, a mirror to assist with the fitting and information on the consequences of not fitting as instructed. The station also assists in managing PPE stock – reorder levels indicate when ear plugs are running low and the update signs identify who to contact for stock replenishment.   Tel: 0161 4065416
