Fire Safety Manager Course (Day Class, In-Person Learning)

Event code: 79090FT



The Fire Safety Management (FSM) scheme was given wide publicity since 1989. Together with the passing of the Fire Safety Act 1993 and the Fire Safety (Fire Safety Manager) Regulations 1994, it has become mandatory for owners of designated buildings to appoint Fire Safety Manager. The amended FSM regulations, gazetted on 13 Apr 2007, aims to make further improvements to the FSM scheme to enhance the fire safety standard within buildings. This course prepares potential Fire Safety Manager for such varied roles and functions include being able to interpret the Fire Safety Act and Regulations among others.


At the end of the course, participants will be able to:
a) Explain the provisions of the Fire Safety Act and Regulations in Singapore
b) Describe the fundamentals and principles of fire safety design
