TC61 Fire Safety Management - are there lessons to be learnt from Grenfell?


Back to Training

A half day workshop to see what lessons can be learnt following the tragic events on 14th June 2017 at Grenfell Tower.


The tragic events on 14th June 2017 at Grenfell Tower have brought a renewed focus on fire safety in residential blocks of flats and in particular high rise buildings. Grenfell was not the first major fire in a high rise block of flats but it is certainly the most significant. Although much of the talk in the press surround the cladding on the building this will almost certainly not be the only factor which let to such a serious loss of life.

Whatever the causes of loss of life were, Managing Agents cannot afford to wait for the results of the public enquiry before reviewing what they are doing.

This half day workshop led by Mark Snelling MCIOB RFaPS Grad IOSH (ARMA’s Health & Safety Consultant) will cover:

  • The latest news on the governments cladding tests and what to do if you have a property with cladding that has failed ;
  • How to choose the right people to help you manage fire safety and undertake fire risk assessment;
  • Compartmentation and flat front doors - the problems and the solutions;
  • The standards to be achieved and the guidance that will help you get there.


This workshop will be suitable for directors managers responsible for managing fire safety and selecting and appointing assessors.
