Free webinar to discuss RRO compliance

Playing a vital role in ensuring the safety of a space’s occupants, the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, or RRO, covers virtually all buildings and structures excluding individual private dwellings.

FDS Consult, one of the UK’s leading experts in fire design engineering, is offering a free one hour webinar on Wednesday 19th November, providing expert advice on building owners’ responsibilities under the order and how they can achieve compliance.

The event will be hosted by Senior Associate Fire Engineer Jim Golt, who gained 28 years of experience with the London Fire Brigade before becoming a fire engineer. Jim will discuss the reasons behind the Order’s introduction before covering fire risk assessments, general precautions that need to be taken, the role of consultants and the penalties that can be imposed for non-compliance.

Speaking of the webinar, Jim said:

“Applying to such a diverse range of properties, the RRO has a huge impact on fire safety in the UK. “By providing information on the steps needed to ensure compliance, the webinar will help building owners and managers to recognise any potential issues and take action to safeguard their property and its inhabitants.”
