New CPD accredited seminar: ‘Limiting fire hazard & cable protection systems’

Thomas & Betts has introduced a new Continuing Personal Development (CPD) approved seminar, ’Limiting Fire Hazard & Cable Protection Systems’.

It covers all the key topics connected with limiting fire hazards and providing protection for electrical cables within public areas.

Running the CPD is John Austin, international product sales manager, cable protection systems for Thomas and Betts. He said, ‘One of the primary aims of the CPD is to give delegates information on the technical terminology used in the specification of cable protection systems that are designed to limit fire hazards. This will help to ensure correct material and product specification for both UK and overseas projects.’

The seminar is aimed at electrical consultants and architects who play a major role in the specification process. Contractors, facilities managers, estate managers, designers, project managers and safety officers will also find the CPD invaluable. Indeed, anyone who is a member of a professional body or institution is automatically expected to undertake Continuous Professional Development as a requirement of individual membership. Furthermore, most employers now require their employees to undertake CPD, regardless of role or responsibility.

The free CPD seminar covers a range of critical topics, including:

Production definitions: LSF – Low Smoke and Fume; LSOH – Low Smoke Zero Halogen, LFH – Limited (or Low) Fire Hazard Halogen Free

Types of flame retardants

Requirements for safety in public areas

Essential fire testing procedures

Toxicity and Toxicity Index

British Standards & Legislation updates

The one hour sessions can be held centrally at a key geographical location, or can also be customised to take place at a company’s offices if preferred.
