You should choose this course if you have the responsibility of undertaking fire risk assessments at your place of work, or if you would like to become qualified to perform this duty.
Fire risk assessments are a legal requirement under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, and should be carried out on a regular basis by a suitable qualified person. This course provides the training your appointed staff members need to compile these assessments.
Identifying fire risks, and putting plans into place to mitigate these risks, is an essential part of protecting your property and premises and keeping your staff and customers safe.
As an appointed fire risk assessor for your company, this course will give you the knowledge and understanding you need to accurately assess fire risks, and to work proactively to both reduce the risk of fire, and reduce the risks to people and property if a fire should occur.

This course will help your company to comply with the requirements of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and other relevant health and safety laws.
