Details :

This course is mainly for probationers and young practitioners.


The provisions for means of escape in case of fire are stipulated in Part B of the Code of Practice for Fire Safety in Buildings 2011. This Part consists of numerous virtually prescriptive requirements in the form of text and diagrams. However the principles behind the requirements are not always well explained and illustrated as in a text book. Users, especially young practitioners, may experience difficulties and puzzle in following the requirements in unusual situations not covered by the Code. One may note that some requirements are inter-related and measures to comply with requirements in one aspect may not ensue compliance with others. Sometimes it takes quite a long time for young practitioners to comprehend the spirit of the Code out of practice. The speaker would try to shorten this learning period for them.

Remarks :
