Sealmaster Fire Safety Seminars

The question of fire safety
The legal framework governing the provision of fire safety in buildings has developed in a piecemeal fashion over time. Its direction has been driven partly by the advice of specialists, partly by European Directives and in part by major tragedies such as the Bradford Stadium fire in May 1985 in which 58 people lost their lives and the King`s Cross disaster two years later which claimed 31 lives. The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, which came into effect in October 2006, consolidates elements of over 60 separate statutes and identifies the requirement for a suitable and sufficient fire risk assessment to be carried out on all non-domestic premises and for that assessment to be subject to regular review. This order and the latest revision of Building Regulations Approved Document B places fire safety responsibilities not only with people responsible for such buildings but also contractors carrying out work within them.

Our Fire Safety Days at Pampisford, near Cambridge are provided without charge and are designed to bring our guests up to date with the latest developments. They are designed for architects, members of the fire services, environmental health officers, contractors and other construction professionals. Ventilation is a key defence in any confined space. Today, the huge Channel Tunnel ventilation dampers are protected with specialised air, fire and smoke seals, developed here at Sealmaster.

seminar formats
Sealmaster Fire Safety Days are held at our Pampisford site, close by Cambridge on a regular basis. They run between 10.15am and 3.30pm with a free buffet lunch. The day is divided into a series of subject modules with opportunities for questions and discussion. Each event includes the opportunity to witness a fire test. Tailor-made seminars can also be arranged with Institutes, Practices or other organisations, which prefer an in-house or local venue. Other seminar formats are available covering, for instance, draught, weather and acoustic sealing.
