ASFP to run Continuing Professional Development seminar on passive fire protection

The Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP) will be holding a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) seminar in central London on 23 October. The seminar, to be held at the Aviva Building, 1 Undershaft, London EC3P 3DQ, aims to improve awareness of passive fire protection and help delegates to understand the vital role of compartmentation in maintaining fire safety in buildings.

‘Understanding Passive Fire Protection’ provides an introduction to the types of passive fire protection systems found in buildings and explains the importance of the correct specification, installation and maintenance of all such systems. The seminar will run from 10.00 am-4.30 pm with a break for lunch.

The programme will feature presentations delivered by technical experts from across the fire sector covering all aspects of in-built fire protection, including fire doors and hardware, fire-resistant glazing, fire ducts and dampers, structural fire protection, fire curtains, and fire-stopping systems.

The event will also feature guest speakers who’ll provide updates on the latest fire safety consultations, particularly that on the reform of the building safety regulatory system, and also the publication of ‘Raising The Bar’, the report of the Competence Steering Group set up in response to concerns over industry competency raised in the independent Hackitt Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety.

Delegates will have the opportunity to discuss their queries with passive fire protection specialists, including manufacturer and installer members of the ASFP who’ill be exhibiting at the event.

The seminar is open for members and non-members of the ASFP. It’s suitable for anyone who’s responsible for specifying or inspecting passive fire protection or those appointing trades that could cause damage to existing fire protection in the process of their work.

It should particularly appeal to fire risk assessors, duty holders, facility managers, care home provider staff, local authority representatives, building control officers, approved inspectors, insurance surveyors and, of course, fire service officers.

Tickets for the event are now available to order. These are priced at £45 +VAT per person. Places at the seminar are limited to five delegates per company. Any additional requested bookings will be placed on a waiting list.
