ASFP offers free seminar at Fire Safety Scotland

The Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP) is hosting a free breakfast seminar session on Thursday 4 May in the Fire & Evacuation Theatre at Fire Safety Scotland at the SECC Glasgow on 3-4 May 2017.

Starting with a breakfast roll at 8.15am and finishing at 11.30am, this free morning session will start with a review of the findings of the Report of the Independent Inquiry into the Construction of Edinburgh Schools, which highlighted failures in the quality of construction and fire-stopping installation in a number of Edinburgh schools. It will then consider ways to raise awareness throughout the construction process to improve the design, installation and maintenance of passive fire protection.

Understanding Passive Fire Protection, will provide essential advice on passive fire protection; its specification, installation, inspection and maintenance. It will include presentations on all aspects of passive fire protection, including the role of fire doors; fire-resistant glazing; fire ducts and dampers; structural fire protection; compartment wall penetrations and firestopping. It also offers an insight into fire risk assessment and what to look for in relation to passive fire protection.

The event is suitable for anyone who is responsible for specifying or inspecting passive fire protection or those appointing trades that could cause damage to existing fire protection in the process of their work. It should particularly appeal to practising Fire Risk Assessors, Responsible Persons, Local Authorities, Facilities Managers, Building Control, Building Owners and Care Home Providers.

Registration for the event can be completed via the Scotland Works registration process, by selecting the relevant seminar at the end of the process. Click here to register for the ASFP Seminar
