Consultation opens on National Occupational Standards for Fire Risk Assessment

10 December 2022

FIREQUAL HAS worked with II Aspire Consulting, Skills for Security, Working Group 4 (itself established as a result of Dame Judith Hackitt’s Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety) and other professionals across the fire industry to develop the National Occupational Standards in Fire Risk Assessment.

A consultation process has now been opened on the content of the documents to determine whether they reflect industry Best Practice and, importantly, what individuals in the role of fire risk assessor need to know such that they’re able to conduct inspections and assessments on a successful basis.

The consultation process is being run by II Aspire Consulting. Not surprisingly, the organisation wants to hear the views of as many fire risk assessment practitioners as possible. The overriding desire is to make sure the content of these National Occupational Standards is both relevant and fit for purpose.

Practitioners’ input is hugely valuable and will help to define the National Occupational Standards, which will ultimately be used to shape courses and qualifications, job descriptions and other talent management tools for individuals, companies, professional trainers and educators alike.

The online consultation process takes around 15 minutes to complete and runs online from now until 5.00 pm on Tuesday 10 January 2023.

Respondents are requested to answer the consultation questions in as much detail as possible, in turn reflecting their experience and current role.
