Join fire safety experts from BM TRADA and Warringtonfre for a live webinar at 11am GMT on Thursday 25 February 2021. Learn how an effective Fire Safety Management System can provide assurance that the necessary controls, fire precautions and provisions are being correctly managed.

Why should I attend?

We are aware there is a growing awareness of current responsibility for fire safety, changes to UK fire legislation and the want to better understand how to reduce risk to properties under an organizations control. As part of our fire testing and certification solutions, establishing a fire risk management system will help to clarify an organisations fire strategy enabling efficient process and communication reducing risk of incident and failure of safety measures. By following the requirements outlined in BS 9997, 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 their strategy is sufficient and prove to interested parties a commitment to fire safety. 

Our experts will focus on the following:

Who is the responsible person?
The principles of a fire risk management system
The benefits of implementing BS 9997
Getting started with an FRMS and BS 9997
