Fire safety


The College Fire Safety Officer provides comprehensive guidance and advice to all departments on the fire safety management of its people and buildings.

The main function of the Fire Officer is to ensure compliance with the various pieces of fire safety legislation that regulate our activities and, in particular, the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. He carries out regular Fire Risk Assessments, which inform the College on any remedial actions required, on such issues as fire alarms, fire fighting equipment, fire resisting structure, training and maintenance.

Liaison with the College Estates department, Building Control Officers and the local Fire Service ensures that all new building projects, and alterations to existing premises, comply with current standards and guidance. 

The Fire Safety Officer can be contacted for general advice on any work related fire safety issues as well as answering any queries you may have about fire safety in the home.
