Foundation Fire Safety (eLearning)

The Grenfell Tower fire in June 2017 left the nation in shock. The loss of life was beyond reason and whilst the public enquiry is underway both social landlords, private landlords and block managers are naturally questioning whether they are doing enough to protect their tenants from fire.

The legislation on fire safety is complex with different buildings/property types being subject to different laws and regulations, this can leave landlords and letting agents confused as to what fire safety precautions they must take.
