This course has now taken place.

The 2017 Grenfell Tower disaster, where 71 people lost their lives, has emphasised the need to re-evaluate how building regulations and fire safety in housing are applied and enforced by councils and housing associations.

The recently published Final Report from the Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety in housing, led by Dame Judith Hackitt, has highlighted the deficiencies in underlying regulations and what changes should be implemented going forward.

As the report states, these changes to the regulatory regime will help, but will not fully succeed in minimising the risk without a change in culture, from one of doing the minimum required for compliance to one of taking ownership and responsibility for delivering a safe system throughout the life-cycle of a building.

Join this one-day interactive training course on Ensuring Effective Fire Safety in Housing to get a grip on the latest regulations and updated safety requirements. You will leave this training session with the knowledge on how you can implement a comprehensive fire safety programme in your organisation.
