RoSPA to deliver new fire safety and risk management course

Managers and supervisory staff with fire safety responsibilities in the workplace can strengthen their careers with a new course being run by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA).

Aimed at professionals who want to ensure their organisation meets its fire safety legislation responsibilities, the NEBOSH ¬- National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health - National Certificate in Fire Safety and Risk Management course - covers, not only the management of health and fire safety, but also important legal requirements.

Candidates will learn the principles of fire and explosion, causes and prevention of fires, fire protection in buildings and how to ensure peoples’ safety in a fire.

Successful completion of the course will allow candidates to undertake fire risk assessments in low risk workplaces, as well as identify fire protective and preventative measures.

The NEBOSH qualification, which is one of several currently offered by RoSPA, is divided into three units - management of health and safety, fire safety and risk management and practical fire risk assessment - with certificates handed out for each unit passed. When all units are complete, the student will be handed the overall qualification parchment.

The course, which is also aimed at people moving into fire safety adviser roles, has already proved popular among many organisations and thousands of candidates have gone on to achieve the qualification.
RoSPA, the UK’s leading health and safety charity with nearly 100 years’ experience in the field, has been delivering training for NEBOSH for decades with exceptional pass rates.

Rob Burgon, RoSPA’s workplace safety manager, said: “We are delighted to be adding the NEBOSH Certificate in Fire Safety and Risk Management course to our wide portfolio.

“It means we can offer one of the broadest ranges of globally-recognised NEBOSH courses available - from the NEBOSH Health and Safety at Work course to the sought-after NEBOSH Diploma.

“The new course is already well established with more than 7,500 candidates gaining the qualification. It is invaluable to professionals looking to meet fire safety needs at work while strengthening their career.”
