7 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment Performance Based Design Performance based design is a practice that provides a framework for developing rational methodology for the design of buildings based upon the application of scientific and engineering principles to achieve stated and agreed objectives

8 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment Definition What is fire engineering? Application of scientific and engineering principles, rules, and expert judgement, based on an understanding of the phenomena and effects of fire and the reaction and behaviour of people to fire, to protect people, property and the environment from the destructive effects of fire. Institution of Fire Engineers

9 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment Definition What is fire engineering? Use of engineering principles for the achievement of fire safety. PD7974-3:2003

10 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment Development of prescriptive rules Reaction to disaster

11 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment Fire engineering origins

12 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment Fire engineering origins

13 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment Development of a fire engineering code DD 240

14 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment Development of a fire engineering code BS 7974

15 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment Development of a fire engineering code BS 7974 PD 0: Design framework PD 1: Initiation and development of fire within the enclosure of origin; PD 2: Spread of smoke within and beyond the enclosure of origin; PD 3: Structural response PD 4: Detection of fire and activation of fire protection systems; PD 5: Fire service intervention; PD 6: Evacuation; PD 7: Probabilistic fire risk assessment.

20 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment The insurers role Not often active participants in QDR Not identified at design stage Not invited Do not contribute Contract works insurers Brokers Commercial considerations

21 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment

22 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment What is Business Continuity? The ability to maintain continuity of business in the event of a disruption to normal operations An integral part of an organisations risk management programme Often (wrongly) perceived to be all about (and owned by) IT But also falls within remit of HSE, Facilities, Finance, Risk, etc. Includes emergency response, incident management and other recovery plans Focuses on effect of an incident rather than cause Ultimately helps to achieve business resilience.

23 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment Why We Need BCM To be able to counteract the negative impacts arising from a disruption

24 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment BCM Programme Management Developing and Implementing BCM Response Determining BCM Strategy Exercising, Maintaining & Reviewing Understanding the Organisation The Business Continuity Management Process: Source BS The BCM Lifecycle

25 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment 1.Define business continuity scope, policy, aim & objectives 2.Assign pre-incident roles & responsibilities 3.Assign budget and resource to the programme BCM Programme Management

26 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment 1.Identify current level of BC preparedness 2.Carry out scenario-focused business impact analysis discussions involving select business representatives Define recovery times for all critical activities Obtain views on implications of an incident based upon current preparedness Produce a shopping list of minimum resource requirements 3.Conduct Risk Assessment for resources required by critical activities and act on findings Understanding the Organisation

27 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment 1.Identify Required versus Achievable gaps 2.Develop cost effective recovery strategies 3.Present options to management in a form that will allow them to decide upon appropriate solution and acceptable level of residual risk Determining BCM Strategies

28 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment Some Solutions Make what the organisation has as robust as possible Buy more time with contingencies & workarounds Take advantage of advances in technology Third party supplier solutions can help keep it simple Improve data backups and off site storage Buffer management for supplies Find alternative suppliers Improve supply lead times or contracts Reciprocal arrangements with other companies Implement manual workarounds Do nothing! – organise post incident.

29 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment 1.Define incident management & recovery organisation 2.Document clear and concise plans 3.Incorporate all pre- incident actions within BC Actions Log and monitor progress Developing & Implementing BCM Response – The Plan

30 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment Worst Case Focus Plan for the worst case scenario i.e. where a single incident would have the largest impact on the organisation, regardless of the probability e.g. complete, destructive loss of premises and contents Lesser scenarios should therefore be covered by the planning

31 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment 1.Carry out tabletop exercises for people and plans 2.Carry out technical recovery exercises for IT, telephony and data communications 3.Define maintenance & review responsibilities Exercising, Maintaining & Reviewing

32 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment 1.Initial & ongoing BC awareness activity 2.BCM to become an integral part of future projects, business change discussions & supplier contract negotiations 3.Ongoing expansion of scope to respond to potential threats Embedding BCM in the Organisations Culture

33 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment 10 Benefits of BCM 1.Be in control post-incident 2.Help safeguard human life 3.Stand out from competitors 4.Improve insurance terms 5.Understand and accept risk exposure 6.Keep impacts within acceptable levels 7.Maintain critical activities 8.Protect jobs 9.Protect reputation 10.Sleep at night….

34 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment ROBUST Developed by FPA and RISCAuthority Backed by UK insurers Free of charge https://robust.riscauthority.co.uk

35 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment Fire engineering process Start Qualitative design review (QDR) Quantitative analysis of design Reporting and presentation of results Un- satisfactory Satisfactory End Assessment against criteria

36 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment Fire engineering process Qualitative design review (QDR) Quantitative analysis Assessment against criteria

37 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment Business continuity planning Business impact analysis (BIA)

38 THE UKs NATIONAL FIRE SAFETY ORGANISATION Protecting people, property, business and the environment Business continuity planning Business impact analysis (BIA) Identify critical activities Identify resources to support activities Identify fire safety objectives to protect resources.
