Tall Building fire safety training courses – best practice series

Management of Fire Safety in Tall Buildings is essential if the risk of fire is to be kept within acceptable limits.

More and more Tall Buildings are being built, and existing Tall Buildings modified and changed. Tragic fires in the recent past have shown how Tall Buildings can pose real challenges to firefighters and those charged with evacuating occupants.

Competent fire safety management is the key to fire prevention. Developed to compliment membership of the Tall Buildings Fire Safety Network, the Tall Building Fire Safety Management Training Course is packed with useful tools and techniques for those tasked with management.

Instructors on the course are experts in their field and come with a wealth of knowledge and experience.

Delivered over 5 days in existing Tall Buildings, the course will cover a wide syllabus of relevant topics and case studies.

Taking place May 8-12 at The Shard in London, the course is  £1795+VAT. To book, please call or email Russ Timpson on +44 01304 806873 or russ.timpson@horizonscanbcp.com.
