Thursday 25 February 11-12 noon GMT
Join fire safety experts from BM TRADA and Warringtonfire to learn how an effective fire risk managements system can provide assurance that the necessary controls, fire precautions and provisions are being correctly managed.
Why should I attend?
There is growing awareness of individuals legal responsibilities for fire safety, changes to U.K. fire legislation and a need to understand how to reduce risk to properties and their occupants under an organization's control.
As part of our fire testing and certification solutions, establishing an effective fire risk management system will help to clarify an organization’s fire strategy, enabling efficient process and communication reducing risk of incident and failure of safety measures.
By following the requirements outlined in BS 9997:2019, an organization will be expected to create a fire policy, allocate sufficient resource and expertise, as well as implement processes to ensure the fire strategy remains integral to their day to day operation. Certifying the system will give third party verification the strategy is sufficient and prove to interested parties a commitment to fire safety.
