This short course is intended to provide an overview of the relevant legislation, under which fire risk assessments are required, and the process of carrying out a fire risk assessment in accordance with PAS 79.

It covers the latest revision which creates  PAS 79-1: 2020 (Fire risk assessment – Part 1: Premises other than housing - Code of practice) and PAS 79-2: 2020 (Fire risk assessment – Part 2: Housing – Code of practice), both of which came into force on 31 December 2020. 

PAS 79-1 approximates to a revision of the previous (2012) version of PAS 79, but now has the status of a code of practice, rather than simply guidance. 

The new Part 2 was created in response to requests from the housing sector for a code of practice dedicated to fire risk assessment for blocks of flats, sheltered housing, HMOs and other housing premises, following the Grenfell Tower fire in 2017.

Who should attend 

This course is designed for delegates with at least a basis understanding of the principles of fire safety. It is suitable as an introduction to fire risk assessment for those not currently engaged in fire risk assessment, an insight for employers and building owners as to what to expect from a suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment and as an update of the revised PAS 79 for those already carrying out fire risk assessments. 

The course is particularly relevant to:

  • Fire Risk Assessors
  • Fire Safety Consultants
  • Health & Safety Practitioners
  • Fire & Rescue Service Inspecting Officers
  • Building Managers
  • Facilities Managers
  • Property Managers
  • Managing Agents

What is included?

  • Viewing the presentation live via Microsoft Teams while listening to the trainer’s supportive explanations
