AIMS & OBJECTIVES
The NEBOSH Fire Safety and Risk Management Certificate is designed to equip duty holders to help their organisations to meet the legal duties placed upon them by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 .
A fire can have a devastating effect on an organisation. 77% of businesses experiencing a major fire never fully recover. The updated duties under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 place the responsibility on employers and those in control of premises to ensure that they assess fire risks and take steps to minimise those risks and safeguard people in the event of a fire.
The course covers management of health and safety and in particular fire safety including legal requirements. It also includes principles of fire and explosion, causes and prevention of fires, fire protection in buildings and ensuring the safety of people in the event of fire. The syllabus is divided into two taught units. The first unit "Management of Health and Safety", forms part of the NEBOSH National General Certificate. The second taught unit is "Fire Safety and Risk Management". The course covers the following elements:
Managers and supervisory staff who need to ensure that their organisation meets its responsibilities under fire safety legislation. This course will equip duty holders to carry out fire risk assessments of most low risk workplaces and identify the range of fire protective and preventative measures required. It is therefore also suitable for people moving into fire safety adviser roles.
There are no pre-requisites to undertake this course.
Candidates who have already achieved the National General Certificate Unit 1 (NGC1) either on its own or as part of the National General Certificate course within the last five years will not need to re-take the assessment of this part of the syllabus and only need to study the second taught unit “Fire Safety and Risk Management”.
Delegates who successfully complete two x 2 hour written papers (NGC1 & FC1), plus a practical assessment (FC2) will receive a NEBOSH Fire Safety and Risk Management Certificate.
Language: All of our courses (including all course materials) are delivered in English and the exams at the end of the course must also be written in English. Candidates should therefore have a good standard of written English. NEBOSH do not deduct marks for spelling or grammar but they must be able to read and understand candidates answers in order to be able to award the appropriate marks. Candidates for whom English is not their first language will be allowed extra time in their examinations, subject to approval from NEBOSH.
