Legal advice to top agenda at Fire Safety North
06 June 2017
FIRE SAFETY North, which takes place on 10-11 October at EventCity Manchester, has announced its free CPD-accredited content line-up that includes a mock trial under the Fire Safety Order.
Co-located with Health and Safety North, the event will attract more than 2,000 visitors and have 120 exhibition stands across both shows. The Fire Safety Keynote Theatre, sponsored by Advanced, will once again provide delegates with content usually reserved for a pay-to-attend conference. The key theme for the theatre is competence and compliance. The headline sessions include a mock trial for a prosecution under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (where you will be the judge and jury!) and the UK’s leading fire safety lawyer Warren Spencer will provide an overview of the key failings that has led to him prosecuting more than 100 cases under the Fire Safety Order.
The Fire Safety Keynote Theatre will also include a live chemical explosion demonstration, the role of the responsible person, advice on how to eliminate false alarms, how to evacuate and prevent fire spread in tall buildings and a special government address from the Welsh Assembly on how it passed a law to make sprinkler mandatory in new build properties and the effects this will have on the rest of the UK.
The Fire and Evacuation Theatre will also be running during the event and this will share key case studies on how to ensure you meet standards for life safety and property protection. Topics include how to ensure your risk assessor is competent, how visual alarms keep people safe, why you should consider combining fire and security systems, staying compliant during evacuations by having emergency lighting and protecting hospitals and sheltered housing from fires.
The will also be breakfast briefings on both days where you can arrive at the event before doors open and network while enjoying a breakfast roll and refreshments. Delegates will then be treated to a panel debate on understanding passive fire protection and how to protect occupants in tall buildings.
Every session is free to attend and CPD-accredited. You can view the full timetable for both theatres and reserve your seat for FREE by visiting www.firesafetyevents.com/fire-safety-north
