Event Summary

BS9999 introduces a slightly more advanced method of fire safety design than the simplistic approach developed in Part B of the Building Regulations.

The Standard allows for the basic principles of the design strategy to be examined and allows greater flexibility where additional fire safety features, such as sprinklers and automatic fire detection are proposed in situations where they would not otherwise be needed. This one day seminar will look at the development of a risk profile for the premises and its occupants as well as demonstrating how this can be used to determine the appropriate fire safety features.

You will understand the steps to be taken to ensure an appropriate provision for means of escape, structural fire precautions, firefighting and rescue operations. The implications of management practices and the factors which need to be considered to achieve a safe design will also be explored.

This standard is now required knowledge for all those who wish to remain competent in the field of fire safety design. Whether you regularly use BS9999 or not, the basic principles underpin even the most simplistic designs to Part B.
