Eastwood Park’s 2017-18 training dates now available
Our courses range from fire precautions in building design (ideal for fire safety advisors and members of a building control body), to specialist guidance for hospital fire safety managers. The Fire Safety Manager’s course is based on the revised HTM 05-01 that was published in 2014.
For those carrying out fire risk assessments in hospitals, or having to assess their suitability, there is a course on fire risk assessment in healthcare premises exploring the full range of issues that need to be considered when undertaking detailed fire risk assessments in healthcare premises. We also offer a Firecode for health premises course (HTM 05-02).
It is a legal requirement that all healthcare facilities implement a fire safety management programme and in a hospital where patients would not be able to evacuate on their own, it is even more critical.
Eastwood Park, Falfield, was formerly the NHS national training centre for healthcare engineering and now, as an independent company, we are the leading provider of technical healthcare engineering training in the UK.
