Course Description
Industries involving the use of, storage of, or handling and transporting of hazardous or combustible materials possess potentially serious fire, life safety and environmental hazards if safe practices are not adhered to.

The Training Course Will Highlight ?

The purpose of Fire Risk Assessments is to improve Safety Management Systems, NOT simply to collect data and file. The assessments have to be both "suitable and sufficient", must never be carried out in isolation but in a practical and systematic way. Naturally, there cannot be an "off the shelf solution". Every workplace is different. It is vital that assessors are able to seek commitment from the top of the organization and to consult with all relevant personnel; this will ensure a company-wide acceptance of the findings.

Paradigms are being shifted to emphasize the concept of fire assessment and safety systems as organizations attempt to effectively reduce losses and protect their reputation. So much so that all employees must have an understanding of fire, how quickly it can spread, and how devastating its impact can be. With this knowledge, employees will be better equipped to recognize fire hazards in their work environments and take steps to introduce and practice fire safe behaviors. Industrial Fire Risk Assessment, Safety and Emergency Planning includes compliance with applicable regulations, adopting suitable best practices, and applying common sense.

This dynamic Course provides the delegate with all the requirements and instruction on what to do and what not to do when carrying out Assessments and implementing the findings.
