Good News for Fire Risk Assessments
I think the launch of the new fire risk assessor professional register by the Institute of Fire Safety Managers (IFSM) is is a really good thing for our industry. The register will recognise all he schemes that have UKAS accreditation so by using a supplier that is registered you can rest assured that they have been through a recognised accreditation program to perform effective Fire Risk Assessments.
“IFSM secretary general, Bob Docherty, said the institute recognised that the time had come to start moving towards a more professional and competency-based fire risk assessors register.” which will remove the risk to you the consumer.
The new register actually started on the 1st of December 2012, so make sure you know if your supplier meets the standards required to complete your risk assessment and fire safety!
