Building Safety Fire Prevention Training

In Canada building owners are legally responsible for the fire safety of their properties. Our "Building Safety Fire Prevention Training" offers building owners and managers essential fire and life safety knowledge that will give them the confidence to perform a fire safety self-assessment on specific low risk buildings for which they are responsible. Routine fire prevention assessment is an inexpensive form of preventive maintenance that is a sound asset protection strategy, increasing tenant safety, protecting your investment and decreasing building owners' liability.

Fire Safety Code Changes coming soon in British Columbia

In British Columbia the provincial government has proposed significant changes to legislation by introducing the Fire Safety Act. This new Act, which received Royal Assent on May 19, 2017, reminds building owners of their responsibility to ensure their buildings are meeting an acceptable level of fire safety code compliance. Municipalities will be mandated to implement a compliance monitoring system.

British Columbia is proposing significant change to legislation through the Fire Safety Act. This new Act, which received Royal Assent on May 19, 2017, reminds building owners of their responsibility to ensure their buildings meet acceptable level of fire safety code compliance. Municipalities have been mandated to implement a compliance monitoring system.

While it's up to each municipal jurisdiction to implement a compliance monitoring system, most will accomplish this by allowing trained building owners or managers to perform a fire safety self-assessment on their low risk, low hazard properties. This easy to follow Building Safety Fire Prevention Training program provides this education for self-assessment.
