Managing Fire Safety in Occupied Buildings (Session 1)

10:55 - 13:00

Active & Passive Fire Protection systems work in harmony to protect lives in occupied buildings. Fire detection and alarm systems provide early warning, emergency lighting provides direction and passive systems protect designated escape routes. The management of these vital life safety systems require different strategies, passive systems can be difficult for the unprepared.

Building Regulations set minimum life safety standards and require designers to develop a fire strategy demonstrating compliance as part of the planning process. The first step is to understand this fire strategy, the function of the installed passive systems and their maintenance requirements. It is imperative to ensure, that those engaged in general maintenance, re-instatement or wider project management can demonstrate appropriate competence for their allocated task.
