Leading life safety manufacturer, Hochiki Europe, has hosted a virtual roundtable in which experts discussed the pressing issues that surround life safety in our educational facilities. The online panel talk, available to watch online, comes as part of the manufacturer’s efforts to uphold high standards within the fire safety sector and support its industry partners in doing the same.

The experts on the roundtable comprised:

  • Paul Adams, Marketing Manager, Hochiki Europe, (Chair)
  • David Brant, Contracts Manager at Fisk Group
  • Chris Connor, Site Manager at The Campion School
  • Neil Eves, Systems Manager, Hochiki Europe 
  • Will Lloyd, Technical Manager, Fire Industry Association


The group recently worked together installing a new life safety system at Campion School in Essex. The panel discussed the pressures education providers are facing in this new normal, but also some of the key factors that need to be taken into account when specifying and installing life safety systems in schools and universities. Highlights of the roundtable are available on YouTube, providing some key takeaways for installers, engineers and end users alike.
