New Fire Management Safety Course
Aimed at anyone with a responsibility towards management of fire safety in any organisation or business, Active Fire Management has launched a training course for Fire Safety Managers which provides course delegates with a nationally recognised qualification in Fire Safety. The Level 2 Fire Safety Qualification is awarded upon completion of an examination under Active Fire Management’s awarding body – Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance (HABC).
General fire safety in England and Wales is maintained through compliance with the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. The legislation implements a risk-based approach to fire safety in community, industrial and business premises. It requires the responsible person (usually the employer, owner or occupier) to carry out a fire safety risk assessment, implement appropriate fire precautionary and protection measures and to maintain a fire management plan. All members of staff have a role to play in fire safety and the fire safety qualification supports these various roles.
All individuals involved with fire safety must receive all the required information and training to deal with fire safety issues. Attendance on Active Fire Management’s Level 2 Fire Safety Qualifications on the QCF (Qualifications Credit Framework) will ensure this.
The provision of this fire safety qualification will assist organisations meet their legal obligations as well as provide a much safer working environment for all of their employees.
The Level 2 course ensures that delegates know that fire safety is the responsibility of everyone in the workplace and will recognise the consequences of a fire in any premises.
Kerry Lawrence, Director of Active Management said “we are delighted to be able to add this course to our 2012 training portfolio. This qualification is aimed at anyone involved in the management of fire safety in the workplace which includes managers, supervisors, team leaders, fire marshals/wardens and staff working in any area where this is a potential risk of fire. So far the course is being delivered to housing association and hotel staff, however it’s relevant to any organisation or business as the qualification is aimed at anyone involved in the management of fire safety in any workplace”.
