STA Launches New Fire Safety Workshops

The Structural Timber Association (STA) is launching a new series of Fire Safety workshops across the UK this autumn.

The workshops aim to provide the structural timber industry and its affiliates with the latest information on fire safety, with suppliers being invited to share their most recent measures and products for this most crucial aspect of construction.

Speakers from across the construction industry will present recent developments in the field of fire safety, to ensure that sites using timber as their primary construction method are as safe as possible.

The half-day events will also provide delegates with the newly updated Site Safe procedures and complementary Fire Risk Management information - including 16 steps to fire safety and the STA's latest advice notes.

Chairman of the STA, Lawrence Young explains: "The importance of fire safety is paramount for any construction firm - timber or otherwise - and the STA is dedicated to providing support and training in this area. It's been three years since the introduction of the Fire Separation Guide and with so many updates and changes having taken place we felt the time was right to run a series of workshops.

"With the correct procedures in place, we can keep delivering quality products, assured that every measure is in place to ensure safety at all stages of the construction process"

The workshops will take place at the following locations:

Scotland - 1 October - Garfield Hotel, Glasgow (fully booked)

Midlands - 8 October - NEC, Birmingham (members only)

South - 9 October - St. Mary's Stadium, Southampton

North West - 16 October 2014 - Daresbury Park Hotel, Warrington
