TRAINING IN FIRE PREVENTION INSTALLATIONS
On 3 October TECNIFUEGO (Spanish Association of Fire Protection Companies), gathered experts and technical press for the presentation of “New Practices in Passive Fire Prevention Installations”
The meeting focused exclusively on passive fire protection, as summarised in the following main points:
- No product is reliable unless it is properly installed, therefore, installers must be trained and qualified professionals.
- Installer’s qualifications
- The project is key. Detailed specifications reduce on-site incidents.
- Fire protection is a social asset, its main goal is to save people’s lives.
The director of the Passive Protection Department of TECNIFUEGO, also stated that the same strategy of professionalizing passive installers is being followed in Europe, promoting the enforcement of mandatory requirements so that both products and installers are regulated by certificates and registration.
In short, they aim to raise awareness of the need for a correct installation and that all companies must comply with the mandatory requirements for CEPREVEN to grant certification, which will be renewed as long as the initial requirements are met.
