Current fire safety legislation requires a risk-based regime in organisations with a nominated competent person overseeing fire safety management – Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 for England and Wales/Fire (Scotland) Act 2005/Northern Ireland Fire Safety Regulations 2010.

This prestigious course has been designed specifically for individuals employed in a wide range of industrial and commercial backgrounds in both public and the private sector and organisations who require in-depth, practical training in fire risk assessment.

This course ensures that on completion delegates feel competent and confident to carry out fire risk assessments, produce fire safety reports and fire emergency plans of small to medium size premises in line with current legislation.
