This programme was delivered on behalf of IOSH as part of their CPD programme for over 11 years. The programme is ‘pending IOSH re – approval’ following the demise of IOSH CPD delivery.  Over this time it has received many plaudits and continues to receive very positive feedback.

The programme provides the key underpinning elements from the Fire Sector Federation guidance on competency criteria, which is not a surprise as Andrew Furness produced the Fire Risk assessment course and sat on the FSF working party that developed the standards.

The programme includes;Fire Safety Inspection

  • Legislation and Guidance
  • Fire Risk Assessment (FRA) Terminology
  • Preparation and planning
  • Recording your assessment
  • Management issues
  • Fire Spread & Compartmentation
  • Fire Alarm & Detection
  • Means of Escape
  • Managing Evacuation
  • Fire Fighting Systems & Fire Service Access
  • Construction Operations
  • Prioritising Actions

Throughout the programme there are interactive exercises for delegates to be involved in culminating in a syndicate based Fire Risk Assessment exercise on the second day.


Fire Risk Assessment in Construction

Principles & Practice

This programme only appeared on the IOSH CPD calendar for 2 years and is now  ‘pending IOSH re-approval’, however IOSH construction professionals amongst others, have given this programme a big thumbs up.Timber frame

Based around supportive guidance from the HSE in HSG 168 Fire Safety in Construction and taking into account the JCoP produced for the construction sector the programme provides construction professionals and fire risk assessors with a practical approach to assessing fire risk from the planning stage of a project and throughout the construction phase.

The contents of the programme are broadly similar to the programme outlined above but also take into account the ‘designers’ fire risk assessment risk element and fire spread off site.
