In line with our strategy of corporate and social responsibility, Metro Safety have been providing free fire safety seminars ever since the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order came into force in 2006. More recently our programme has been extended to include other compliance disciplines including health and safety, legionella control and asbestos management.
Our CPD seminars help property professionals from a variety of sectors gain a greater understanding of fire, health & safety legislation. Seminars provide a great opportunity for networking and a chance to put your questions to our technical experts. They are also a good way of earning additional CPD points towards your yearly requirement.

MHCLG: Advice Note 14 - Owner Obligations & What Happens Next
We are delighted to welcome our guest speaker Mark London, Partner and Head of the Construction & Technology Team at Devonshires Solicitors LLP.
Advice Note 14 (published in December 18) attempts to ‘clarify’ what owners of tall buildings should be doing to ensure their existing buildings are safe for the purposes of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. Mark will be discussing the serious implications of Advice Note 14, what the ‘clarification’ really amounts to, and why now is the time to embrace change if you want to future-proof your tall buildings. He also considers the clear insight this provides into how the Government intends to adopt the recommendations of the Hackitt report in formulating its new regulatory regime.
