Regional event: Responsible Person under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order
Chiltern International Fire (CIF) has added a new half-day regional event to its training calendar for 2012, aimed at the Responsible Person under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order (RRFSO), entitled ‘Fire Protection Measures – Understanding Your Responsibilities’.
The aim, according to Senior Consultant Peter Barker, is to raise awareness of passive fire protection (PFP) and the duties placed on the Responsible Person (RP).
He said, ‘A large percentage of persons that would be deemed “responsible” under the RRFSO may not be aware of their responsibilities regarding PFP.
Nor may they know their options regarding compliance or showing that they have done everything that is reasonably practical to comply.’
The half-day seminars 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 talks will cover the requirements of the RRFSO, what a PFP survey should reasonably encompass; what to expect in a fire risk assessment, what competent looks like and maintenance of fire safety provisions, specifying third-party certification, plus a case study of the legal obligations of a fire risk assessor.
There will be a Q&A session with the Panel at the end. Mr Barker added, ‘Because of the position that typical RPs hold within a company, they may not be able to attend one of our full day training courses.
These regional seminars, with a broader approach, can more easily be fitted into their working day.’ Dates have been confirmed as 31st May in Bristol, 12th June in Newcastle and 25th September in Coventry.
The cost will be £75.00 ( VAT) to include a light breakfast.
