Due to the high demand, BM TRADA, part of the Exova Group, has added this new date to its series of free half-day fire safety seminars.

The extra seminar is on 3 December and will be held at the University of Leeds and BM TRADA has cautioned that as all the previous seminars have sold out, early booking is recommended to assure a place.

Fire protection measures: understanding your responsibilities is a half-day seminar designed to inform and raise awareness of passive fire protection and the duties placed on the Responsible Person under the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order (RRFSO).

The seminar includes:

  • Introduction to the legislation and explains the vital role of passive fire protection, in ensuring life safety.

  • Why correct installation and continuing maintenance is essential.

  • The importance of ensuring the competency of those involved in assessing, specifying, installing and maintaining passive fire protection measures how third party certification can help.

  • Considers the role of the enforcing officer.

  • Outlines 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.

E-learning course

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.

Who should attend?

The seminar is suitable for facilities and estates managers, fire and rescue services, housing associations, local authorities, hotel and guesthouse owners and managers of public buildings, including those in the education and health sectors.

“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,” explained Peter Barker, Senior Consultant, BM TRADA.
