With management failings at the root cause of most prominent multi-fatality fires and many high profile prosecutions, organisations have spent considerable sums of money on fire safety, but not necessarily achieved an improved level of the fire safety as a result.
Managing Director of BB7, and technical author of PAS 7, Ben Bradford said “Having spent a number of years undertaking the risk assessments on the same portfolio of buildings, it is noticeable that some organisations are beginning to wonder if the current practice is sustainable. The practice of fire risk management is often haphazard and inconsistent throughout organisations because fire safety does not sit neatly in one department.”
Life safety is of course a primary compliance driver but fire risk management is a much broader discipline with property protection, mission continuity and environmental sustainability issues becoming more prominent. If your organisation seeks to implement best practice and improve governance of fire risk then these courses will appeal.
SGS has worked in collaboration with BB7 who are widely regarded as the pioneers of strategic fire risk management. Together we have developed a series of Fire Risk Management Systems courses from Awareness to Internal and Lead Auditor. These courses will also work hand in glove with the Primary Authority Schemes offered by Fire Authorities.
The courses will be delivered through the SGS Training Academy (www.sgs.co.uk/
