Competency Workstream

The Competency Workstream has been formed to take on the work of both the Competency & Accreditation Workstream and the Workforce Development Workstream.

The aim of this Workstream is to help improve building fire safety management by addressing issues of competency for those who undertake, knowingly or not, the role of Fire Safety Manager (FSM) of a building. A meeting was held in January 2016 where terms of reference for the Workstream were agreed and a range of key tasks developed.

Key tasks included developing a Register of competency scheme and undertaking a detailed competency gap analysis. A principles paper is in preparation to take these ideas forward.
