No safety system is complete or fully functional unless the operators and maintenance personnel are familiar with the operation and workings of that system. As such, on site training is a standard procedure when commissioning and handing over a system. The suppression system installed on the aviation fuel tanks at Gatwick Airport's North Terminal for Shell Aviation involved the training of not only the site maintenance and safety personnel, but also the Local Authority Fire Brigade Service, who would be responsible for attending in the event of a fire alarm.

Training was formally conducted on site over two days involving the Fire Brigade Service and Site Safety personnel. Training documents were produced to allow future training without the need for our involvement.
