CIF offers free regional fire safety seminars

21 March 2013

Chiltern International Fire (CIF) has announced three new dates for its free half-day seminar on Fire Protection Measures– Understanding Your Responsibilities, to be held in regional locations around the UK.

The events aim to explain the duties of the Responsible Person under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order (RRFSO) and raise awareness of passive fire protection, which is built into the structure of a building.

Delivered by experts in their specific fields, the seminar programme offers a comprehensive introduction to the legislation, as well as guidance on what to look for when undertaking a fire risk assessment. It also explains the importance of ensuring the competence of fire risk assessors and describes the role of third party certification in helping to confirm the quality, reliability and safety of products and personnel.

By packing all the information into just half a day, the seminars offer delegates greater flexibility, making them popular with 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.

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. Peter Barker, CIF senior consultant, says:

“We recognise that fire safety is not always the first priority for building owners and occupiers who often have a range of responsibilities, so our aim is to provide this vital guidance in a format that fits into today’s busy lives.

“By organising these half-day seminars in regional locations, we hope to provide delegates with easy access to information which will help them achieve compliance under the RRFSO and ultimately improve the safety of their employees and visitors.

“The popularity of our seminars proves that there is a real demand for this type of information, provided in a concise and easy to understand format.”

The seminars will be held on 1 May in London; 24 September in Birmingham; and 6 November in Manchester.
