Understanding Passive Fire Protection Seminar Events 

The Association for Specialist Fire Protection (ASFP) is working with a range of organistions, including LABC, Aviva and fire services, to offer a series of regional CPD seminars in locations throughout the UK and Ireland during 2019.

These seminars are aimed at improving awareness of passive fire protection. Understanding Passive Fire Protection offers presentations on all aspects of passive fire protection, including the role of fire doors, frames and fire seals; door hardware maintenance and replacement; fire-resistant glazing; fire ducts and dampers; structural fire protection; compartment wall penetrations and fire-stopping. It also offers an insight into fire risk assessment and what to look for in relation to passive fire protection.

The events are suitable for anyone who is responsible for specifying or inspecting passive fire protection or those appointing trades that could cause damage to existing fire protection in the process of their work. They should particularly appeal to practicing Fire Risk Assessors, Responsible Persons, Local Authorities, Facilities Managers, Building Control, and Care Home Providers.
