Who Should Attend 

This course gives an excellent overview over the current fire safety legislation and guidance. The course is designed for all those in charge of workplaces and fire safety within buildings, such as building managers, fire safety managers and wardens, health and safety managers; it is also useful for those involved in designing and refurbishing buildings and employers who are not familiar with the current fire legislation, as well as those working within fire safety management requiring a refresher course.
