Most significantly, the new law repeals both the Fire Precautions Act 1971 and the Fire Precautions (Workplace) Regulations 1999, as amended, placing responsibility for fire safety firmly with the employer or ‘responsible person’ for a building. This ‘person’ is now required by law to assess the fire risk within a building using an acceptable means of risk assessment.
The one day courses are designed to help businesses understand the full implications of the new changes in fire safety as well as provide them with all the practical skills to carry out, record and monitor fire risk assessments within your workplace. The course will also include how to deal with a full range of fire safety issues encountered in the workplace, as well as how to identify fire hazards and risks.
As with all courses delivered by LWF, comprehensive course notes will be provided as well as a signed certificate of attendance, and the course instructor will be available throughout. For more information visit www.lwf.co.uk.
