IFSM wants young workers views on fire issues

21 September 2017

THE INSTITUTE of Fire Safety Managers (IFSM) has launched a competition aimed at helping young workers in the fire sector to progress their career path.

IFSM is asking young workers in the sector to pen a 250-1,000-word article on anything fire related. The Institute hopes that this will enable those workers to express a fresh-eyes approach to key sector-specific issues.

The winning entry will be announced at the IFSM AGM, which takes place on 10 October at Fire Safety North in EventCity, Manchester. The winner will receive a 200 award for the most thought-provoking article. To enter simply email info@ifsm.org.uk before 5 October.

IFSM will also be holding free technical seminar at the Fire Safety North on 10 October and chair Dr Bob Docherty will be delivering a keynote address at the Event on 11 October on how to choose a competent risk assessor. 

Fire Safety North has more than 14-hours of CPD-accredited content on offer, including a mock fire safety trial, chemical explosion demonstration, a review of prosecutions under the Fire Safety Order and much more. There will be an exhibition of more than 35 fire safety companies and manufacturers and associations and you can visit IFSM on stand FS6. 

Fire Safety North takes place 10-11 October at EventCity, Manchester and is free to attend. You can register at www.firesafetyevents.com
