The planning of the event the creation of a Risk Assessment for the evening were especially appreciated
” This course should form part of every safety persons qualification, as it sets the standard for an accident/incident investigation. Well laid out & very well presented course”
Cheers Andrew, thanks for the course and a fantastic presentation, was a real pleasure spending a week in a virtual classroom with you and our colleagues.
Please forward my thanks for a very informative and interesting day ..lapped up the wealth of information that was disseminated to us and a much more informed view of the Fire Risk Assessment process.
I must congratulate you on your planning and implementation of this years firework event at Brockwell Park. It was the best organised event from a safety perspective that I have ever seen
All at the Club were impressed with his professional attitude, his knowledge , expertise and his ability to explain things in plain English rather than technical expressions.
‘Excellent course. This has provided me with further skills, knowledge & understanding to allow me to undertake the role of a Senior Accident Investigator’
‘Excellent course’ ‘Very Enlightening’ ‘This excellent course should be rolled out to all in the organisation’
Always another level, the virtual course was far more interactive than I expected. I have been on a number of Salvus courses, this is the first and not the last virtual one, I hope
” I thought the course and trainer were really excellent, no complaints what so ever for the delivery of the training and the virtual adaptation was really good”.
Fire Risk Assessment
Principles & Practice
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;
- 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.
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.
