Lote Notes | Fire Safety & Security in Practice | Making the World Safe and Secure
"The oak fought the wind and was broken, the willow bent when it must and survived."
Robert Jordan's words from 'The Fires of Heaven' ring painfully true in these times: many willows have been bending and oaks breaking in this gale. Even some bending willows have unfortunately been blown away entirely.
Analogies aside, COVID-19 and its associated economic pressures have forced businesses to increase their agility and proactivity in order to survive. This is especially true for smaller businesses, or those in certain industries that rely on freedom of movement or non-essential expenditure. The May Special-Edition of Lote Notes focussed heavily on resources to assist businesses with becoming hardier in the face of these struggles.
In this issue, we will shift our focus somewhat back to more regular topics such as industry changes and emerging technologies.
This issue of Lote Notes focuses on data centres, facilities that have become a critical part of modern business and computing, as well as national infrastructure. How are data centres best kept safe from fire and security threats? Additionally, re-investigating aged care - how has COVID-19 affected the industry, and what role do fire safety and security consultancy experts still play in meeting industry goals? Find out within.
