Competence on the agenda at Firex North

Ensuring the competence of fire risk assessors and putting fire-safety prosecutions in the context of health and safety breaches are two of the main topics in a series of free seminars taking place at Firex North on October 27-28.

Senior industry figures will be presenting the latest moves to develop recognised criteria for professional fire risk assessors, as well as accreditation schemes for individuals and companies delivering risk-assessment services.

Other topics on the agenda at the Info4fire Learning Zone will include enforcement action under the Fire Safety Order, the fire-safety responsibilities of residential landlords, and avoiding the pitfalls of inadequate passive fire protection.

Firex North is taking place at the newly refurbished Manchester Central venue – right in the heart of the city. More than 60 companies and organisations will be exhibiting at Firex North, including Apollo Fire Detectors, C-TEC, Kentec Electronics and Warrington Certification.
