Business Education Seminars

Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service are currently providing a series of Business Education Seminars aimed at increasing awareness of the change of legislation that came into force in October 2006 -The Regulatory Reform ( Fire Safety) Order.

It is our ambition to offer as much support and guidance as we can to help you reduce the risk of fire affecting your business and employees. We understand that many people may be unaware of the statutory requirements, nevertheless you are legally bound by them. As the enforcing authority for this legislation, Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service periodically audit businesses to verify compliance.

Feedback from previous seminars confirms that attending one in advance of your audit can:
1) Significantly assist you as a business in complying with the legislation
2) Reduce subsequent audit time.

The seminars offer unique insights and each provides the following:  

Gives you an awareness of legislation, your responsibility to do a Fire Risk Assessment and advice on how to carry it out.
An understanding of what to expect when your premises are audited by us.
Examples of common omissions and shortfalls found when we have audited businesses.
An opportunity to ask any questions, either as part of the group or 1-1 with a fire officer after the presentation.
An information pack that you can read in advance of your inspection.

They are free and well attended and places are limited so early booking is recommended.  Our next round of Seminars in September 2015 are now available for booking. Please visit the following link to reserve a place via our new online booking system....Seminar Bookings   For further information, please contact Tony Wenger on Tel: 01743 260295 or Email:
