Fire Safety Matters Podcast – Episode 27
19 July 2022
THE TWENTY seventh episode of the Fire Safety Matters Podcast is now live to view and available to download or stream for free. On this edition, Mark Sennett is joined by regular guest Warren Spencer to review some of the questions that arose from the recent Fire Safety Matters-Blackhurst Budd Solicitors online conference focused on fire risk assessors.
On Friday 11 March at 10.30 am, Fire Safety Matters once again joined forces with Blackhurst Budd Solicitors to run an online conference under the banner ‘Is The Fire Risk Assessor’s Voice Being Heard?’
The two-hour session was chaired by Fire Safety Matters’ founder Mark Sennett, the CEO of Western Business Media (publisher of Fire Safety Matters magazine), and featured thought provoking and detailed contributions from Warren Spencer (managing director of Blackhurst Budd Solicitors), Warren’s colleague James Aird (solicitor at Blackhurst Budd), Bob Docherty (president of the Institute of Fire Safety Managers) and Iain Bowker (joint owner and director of Ensure Safety and Compliance).
For this edition of the Fire Safety Matters Podcast, Mark and Warren review the content delivered in the conference and address some of the questions that were posed on the day. With more and more investigations being conducted and enforcement action being taken involving fire risk assessments in the post-Grenfell era, are fire risk assessors being properly represented and protected?
In addition, Episode 27 includes Fire Safety Matters Editor Brian Sims’ comprehensive round-up of several major industry news stories focused on professional indemnity insurance for EWS-1 assessors, the Building Safety Act 2022, a petition calling on the Government to implement the Grenfell Tower Public Inquiry recommendation on Personal Emergency Evacuation Plans and the election of a new governing Council at the Association for Specialist Fire Protection.
Further, Brian looks ahead to the 2022 Fire Safety Matters Digital Conference running across two days on Wednesday 12 and Thursday 13 October.
