Landlords urged to attend new fire safety course

In light of the recent Grenfell Tower tragedy, landlords are being urged to attend a new online fire safety course, recently launched by the Residential Landlords Association (RLA).

The RLA have been contacted by many landlords for their advice on keeping tenants safe, with landlords questioning whether they’re doing enough when it comes to fire safety.

Fire safety is a complex issue but the new course makes it easy for landlords to understand how to keep tenants and properties safe from fire. Fire is an issue for all properties, particularly large or shared properties and every landlord has a legal obligation to protect tenants in accordance with fire safety regulations. It is therefore a worthwhile investment of time.

The fire safety course covers legislation relating to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, HMO Manager regulations and Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) regulations 2015. It covers various building types to which the legislation applies, in addition to a practice guide to conducting fire risk assessment that will protect tenants and properties from fire.
