FIRE SAFETY SEMINARS HOSTED BY HONEYWELL AT ASTON UNIVERSITY

22 October 2009

Honeywell in association with Aston University are to host a certified fire safety seminar. The course will outline essential fire safety regulations for responsible persons. The event will take place on Thursday November 26th at Aston University.

Honeywell (NYSE:HON) Building Solutions (HBS) today announced that it will be holding a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programme on fire detection and alarm systems in partnership with Gent by Honeywell and Aston University in Birmingham.

The one-day course will provide building owners and occupiers with a clear understanding of the responsibilities that both the providers and managers of fire detection and alarm systems now face under current legislation.

Topics covered will include a review of The Fire & Rescue Services Act 2004 and the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order implemented in 2006. There will also be an overview of the revised British Standard BS 5839-1:2002, which is the Code of Practice for system design, installation, commissioning and maintenance of fire detection and alarm systems within the UK and Northern Ireland.

"This is an accredited course which is essential for anyone who takes responsibility for fire detection and alarm systems," says Lisa Averns, Marketing Leader for Honeywell Building Solutions. "It is designed to help participants make sense of the current legislation to ensure their legal compliance, whilst fundamentally protecting their buildings and occupants."

The event will take place on Thursday 26th November at Aston University and all attendees are provided with full supporting documentation and a certificate on completion. Anyone who wishes to attend should contact Helen Mallinson on 0121 204 3593 for availability, or visit
