This month Active Fire Management were pleased to have their application to the Institute of Fire Engineer’s Consultants Directory accepted.
Founded in 1918, the IFE is a non profit making professional body that upholds professional standards within all public and private fire sectors by offering assessment of knowledge, experience and development. The objective of the IFE is to encourage and improve the science of and practice of fire extinction, fire prevention and fire engineering.
Earlier this year, Active Fire Management achieved Awarding Body Approval to deliver a national recognised qualification in Fire Safety. The company is therefore delighted to have been accepted on the IFE’s Consultants Directory as further testament of its credibility, knowledge, experience and professionalism associated with its Fire Risk Assessment and Fire Consultancy Services.
Active Fire Management offers fire risk assessment services on a nationwide basis and also deliver to organisations. Training is delivered at locations and on dates that suit each company and its employees. For small groups people also have the chance to attend one of their courses in Crawley.
Active Fire Management have spent considerable time this month working for a number of customers all around the country reviewing Fire Risk Assessments.
Kerry Lawrence, Director of Active Fire Management said “it’s one thing having an initial Fire Risk Assessment carried out within your premises, but it is also part of fire safety law to ensure that your Fire Risk Assessment is subject to review. Fire Risk Assessments are now seen by Local Authorities and indeed the law to be ongoing processes. You must ensure that your Fire Risk Assessment is regularly reviewed and updated to make sure existing problems have been dealt with and to quickly identify any new issues which may arise”.
This month the company’s Fire Risk Assessors have been busy working in London, Cardiff, Huddersfield and Cornwall carrying out assessments and reviews as part of ongoing contracts with its customers.
Active Fire Management were delighted to have supported the leading UK Charity for people with autistic spectrum disorders and their families – the National Autistic Society (NAS) – earlier this month by delivering a fire marshal training course to some of the Charity’s staff.
The training, which was provided free of charge in support of the Charity’s work, was delivered at the Charity’s Acton Services on 13 April 2012.
A representative of the National Autistic Society said “the course was very well received and enjoyed by all the staff attending”.
Kerry Lawrence, Director of Active Management, who has a son with Asperger Syndrome (an autistic spectrum disorder) said “I am very pleased that we were able to provide help to a Charity so close to my own heart that campaigns so hard for a better world for people with autism. I’m sure the NAS’ work goes such a long way to create resources and awareness to help the world better understand people with autism and their very specific needs”.

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”.
