The NEBOSH International 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.

TARGET AUDIENCE
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.

The syllabus is based on the UK's National Occupational Standards in Fire Safety at level 3, which has common units with the Emergency Fire Services National Occupational Standards. Therefore the NEBOSH International Fire Safety and Risk Management Certificate may also be of benefit to fire service personnel developing their underpinning knowledge as part of an Integrated Personal Development System.
