BM TRADA holds free fire safety seminar in Birmingham
BM TRADA is holding a free half-day seminar at the University of Birmingham on 8 September. The ever popular event, Fire Protection Measures– Understanding Your Responsibilities aims to explain the duties of the Responsible Person under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order (RRFSO) and raise awareness of passive fire protection.
It provides an introduction to the legislation and explains the vital role of passive fire protection, in ensuring life safety and why correct installation and continuing maintenance is essential.
The seminar explains the importance of ensuring the competency of those involved in assessing, specifying, installing and maintaining passive fire protection measures and how third party certification can help. It also considers the role of the enforcing officer; and the consequences and costs of getting passive fire protection wrong.
The programme is delivered by a panel of experts in their specific fields, including representatives from BM TRADA, the Fire Protection Association, Association for Specialist Fire Protection, Chief Fire Officers Association and law firm Browne Jacobson.
Delegates also receive free access to ‘The Responsible Person’ e-learning course from the Fire Protection Association, allowing them to fit further learning into their busy schedules at their own convenience.
The seminar is suitable for facilities and estates managers, fire and rescue services, housing associations, local authorities, hotel and guest house owners and managers of public buildings – including those in the education and health sectors.
Peter Barker, BM TRADA Senior Consultant, says:
”It’s imperative that people who assume the role of the ‘Responsible Person’ under the RRFSO fully understand what is required of them in exercising their duty – and the popularity of our seminars proves that there is a real demand for this information, which we are happy to provide.”
