Responsible Person's Fire Safety Course
What is the Responsible Person Fire Safety Course?
We offer a fire safety course for those responsible for their organisation’s fire safety management. By attending this course you will be able to meet the requirements of the responsible person.
This person, or people, is defined by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, article 3 as being the person who is in control of the premises.
