This seminar provides an introduction to the principles on which BS9999:2008 Code of practice for Fire Safety in the Design, Management and Use of Buildings are based.

This Code applies a risk based approach to fire safety and requires that the fire safety measures reflect the perceived risk. It also allows maximum flexibility in the design of buildings and results in travel distances being extended when additional features such as AFD and sprinklers are incorporated in the design


• The risk profile

• Designing means of escape

• Horizontal means of escape

• Vertical means of escape

• Fire resistance of elements of structure

• Ventilation factor

• Sprinklers in design

Application of this code of practice can potentially result in:

• massive savings for the client

• maximum design flexibility for the user

• significant increase in travel distances for low risk occupancies (eg. Offices)
Who should attend?

• Designers

• Architects

• Fire Safety Managers

• Building Control Bodies

• Regulators

• Enforcers

• Fire Officers
