Fire Safety Management Course
The role of Fire Safety Manager is primarily a managerial role suitable for a senior operating manager. The role does not necessitate the duty holder to possess fire safety competencies provided that they have sufficient access to competent fire safety advice provided either from an internal or external Fire Safety Adviser. This course is designed for those with responsibility for fire safety management within their workplace. The course has been tailored to meet the requirements of both the Fire Services Act 1981 and Regulation 9 of The Safety Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005.
The course will take learners through a range of fire management related topics covering legislation, record keeping, fire risk assessment, duties of fire wardens, evacuation planning, passive and active fire safety features, inspection and maintenance, and hot work permits. The Fire Safety Manager acts as a focus for all fire safety matters within the workplace, and therefore the role should be carried out by one person. The role of Fire Safety Manager may be combined with other operational roles such as health and safety, risk management, local security management specialist, emergency planning etc… However, when nominating the Fire Safety Manager, it will be necessary to ensure that there are clearly defined areas of responsibility and an integrated approach to avoid conflict with any overlapping responsibilities.
