The importance of fire risk management in insurance is critical.

We recently conducted a presentation on fire risk management, touching on fire safety for SX plants (solvent extraction).

It's an interesting insurance risk if managed well.

Attached is the article for some light reading.

The FPASA recently participated in the Insurance Apprentice 2020. 

"I am super proud of my team at the FPASA for playing their role in helping produce Episode 6 of the South African Insurance Apprentice 2020- "Fighting Fire with Fire". My team simply outdid themselves and contributed significantly to information sharing in the realm of firefighting, fire prevention, and general risk assessment for an insurance perspective".

We can confirm that we will be continuing our training courses as normal whilst we monitor the latest government and medical advice.

As this is a rapidly changing situation, we will endeavor to notify all of our members and customers of any changes we are required to make as soon as possible.

We ask in advance for patience and understanding whilst we navigate these trying times.

We are committed to the health and wellness of all our staff and delegates. 

Did you know that each metropolitan/ district has its own unique set of fire laws by which to abide?

These are over and above the normal legislated requirements as per SANS 10400: Parts A, T & W. 

Do yourself a favour and register to attend this course to round off your fire education with us.

  • Hydrants (water infrastructure)

     

    We have been talking a lot about hydrants these past couple of days, unfortunately inspired by the Charlotte Maxeke Hospital fire. Whilst we cannot comment on what went wrong for that specific incident because we have not conducted a fire investigation at those premises, we thought it would be useful to circulate some information on fire flow and hydrants. Please note that extracts of tabulated data are sourced from SANS 10090: Community Protection Against Fire.
