This year’s Fire Door Safety Week ran from 20-26 September with the aim of raising awareness of the critical role that fire doors play in saving lives and protecting property in the unfortunate event of a fire.
During this important week, Housing H&S Compliance UK Ltd made a very timely visit to ClwydAlyn Housing Association on the 23 and 24 September to deliver the two day IFSM Accredited Fire Doors in Residential Buildings Diploma to a number of the team.
This two-day course, which is split in to six ‘bite-size’ modules, provided delegates with the theory behind the requirements, including legislation and guidance as well as practical assessment to ensure that delegates knew how to put into practice what they had learned.
Our course is crammed full of useful information, which not only includes a look at fire door specifications, individual standards and inspection but includes the background knowledge to ensure that fire doors are not looked at in isolation, including fire dynamics and passive compartmentation
The course was carefully created by fire safety specialist, Tony Bolder FRACS, MIFSM, GIFireE, TechIOSH, DipNEBOSH, DipFD, CertFDI alongside Housing H&S Compliance UK Ltd Director and Social Housing Safety Specialist, Vicki Cutler CFIOSH, MIIRSM, MIFSM, CMgr MCMI.
The course is expertly delivered by Tony who has over 27 years’ experience (operational and safety roles) within the Fire and Rescue Service (FRS) and over 30 in the fire sector. A real expert in his field, Tony is a UKAS third-party accredited life safety fire risk assessor and also a third-party accredited fire door inspector, through both FDIS and NAFDI. He is also proud to have been selected to serve as a co-opted member of the IFSM Council.
We were delighted to let all delegates know at the end of the two days that they had all successfully passed the course; confirming that they found the training extremely valuable and crucial to their roles.
Here’s some of the feedback received from the ClwydAlyn team:
‘A very in depth course with lots of practical information delivered by a very knowledgeable trainer.’
‘Excellent course! I knew the basics of fire doors previously, but the course has opened my eyes on what’s involved to fully inspect fire doors and their importance within a building.’
‘Good visuals and handouts. Practical and good advice.’
