Bristol training event on ‘Fire Protection Measures – Understanding Your Responsibilities’
Chiltern International Fire (CIF) is offering free half-day seminar essential for those responsible for fire protection measures in their workplace.
The event will take place on May 31st, at the M-Shed in Bristol.
The aim, according to Senior Consultant Peter Barker, is to make the responsible person absolutely clear of what his or her responsibilities are.
He said: ’A large percentage of persons that would be deemed ‘responsible’ under the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order (RRFSO) remain unaware of their responsibilities regarding passive fire protection despite the fact that the order came into force six years ago.
They are also unaware of what options they have regarding compliance or what actions they can take to demonstrate that they have done everything that is reasonably practical to comply’.
The half-day seminar will encompass short presentations by CIF and guest speakers from the Association of Specialist Fire Protection, the Fire Protection Association and legal firm, Browne Jacobson.
The seminar covers RRFSO requirements, PFP surveys, fire risk assessments, how to judge competency, maintenance of fire safety provisions, the value of third-party certification and the legal obligations of a fire risk assessor.
There will be a Q&A session with the Panel at the end.

BM TRADA’s Eurocode 5 Connections workshop has been designed for engineers and engineering technicians who want to understand how EC5 affects connections.

The new Timber Frame Q-Mark certification scheme (replacing the ’Interim’ Scheme) aims to improve the quality and performance of timber frame used within the construction industry plus help manufacturers prepare for CE marking. Obtaining third party certification through the BM TRADA Q-Mark scheme will offer a range of benefits for members including helping to generate new and repeat business.
The Timber in Construction Awards, showcasing the best in timber design, buildings and products, takes place in November at The Point, Lancashire County Cricket Ground. BM TRADA is also sponsoring the ‘Large Engineered Timber Structure of the Year’ category that recognises the giant strides timber has made in large-scale building projects in recent years.
BM TRADA had very positive feedback from delegates attending first practical interactive training session of the new introductory course about the timber industry that included an introduction to softwood, covering common species, sizes, grades, preservation, handling and quality.
