Fire door professionals are being encouraged to attend a series of free webinars to ensure they are following the latest best practice guidance on installation, maintenance and inspection.
The first webinar, “Fire Doors – the consequence of complacency”, will take place on Friday 25 September as part of Masonite UK’s support for Fire Door Safety Week.
It will focus on what happens when fire doors do not perform as they should and the consequences of this. Hannah Mansell, group technical director for Masonite UK (pictured above), will take attendees through a review of fire door safety, the consequences of complacency and will also host a Q&A session.
Hannah said: “Every single person involved in the chain of managing fire safety products needs to understand their legal and moral responsibilities for keeping the building occupants safe.
“It is not just a case of being trained once and considering oneself an expert; it’s about making sure that training is done on a regular basis and that anyone who is responsible for fire and building safety is completely competent; including everyone who is involved in the construction and maintenance of a building.
“These stakeholders must understand that when they chose to be involved in the construction sector, they are essentially signing up to do work, that one day, may save someone’s life. Those that do not hold themselves accountable are playing an extremely dangerous game.”
