Fire Risk Assessors: Investigating the Safety of External Walls Course

After the success of our trial run, we are now hosting additional dates for the Fire Risk Assessors: Investigating the Safety or External Walls Course!

Synopsis – The scope of fire risk assessments has changed with the introduction of the Fire Safety Act 2021. The Act has made the inclusion of the buildings’ structure and external walls, and anything attached to the exterior of those walls, an integral part of an FRA under Article 6 of the FSO, where the
building contains two or more sets of domestic premises.

Linked to this, PAS 9980:2022 states that there are cases where an FRAEW is NOT required – traditionally built masonry blocks and “cases where the quantity of combustible material within the external wall construction or on facades, is so small that it can be discounted”.

The course will be delivered by Malcolm Thomas (BSc (Hons) DipTP FRICS MIFSM) and Dr Bob Docherty (QFSM PhD CEng FIFSM (Life) FIFireE MEI), who are both experienced in external wall appraisals.

Lunch, tea and coffee will be provided throughout the day.
