FDIS helps to plug fire door skills gap

Research by the Fire Door Inspection Scheme has shown that although property managers are more aware of their fire door responsibilities than ever before, many are at a loss as to where to find competent people to help them meet their obligations.

To overcome this problem FDIS has introduced an online resource that provides building operators with details of their nearest Certificated Fire Door Inspectors.

FDIS Certificated Inspectors are uniquely qualified to undertake fire door inspections. Not only have they achieved a Diploma in Fire Doors but they have also had their competence and knowledge independently assessed by Exova Warringtonfire.

FDIS general manager Neil Ashdown says: “As more and more building managers and property owners recognise that to meet their legal obligations under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order their fire doors must be inspected by qualified people, fdis.co.uk/inspector will become the go to resource for the highest level of competence in this area.”
