Reading Time: 2 Mins Read

The tragedy at Grenfell Tower last month has cast a cloud over the public housing sector, and the issue of fire safety in communal, high rise buildings has rarely been out of the news since.

RLA rolls out online fire safety course for landlords
But now the Residential Landlords Association (RLA) is launching a fire safety course for its members and non-members.

In the wake of the fire at Grenfell Tower, there were many questions from landlords about how best to fire-proof rental properties to ensure the safety of tenants, and the RLA has responded with an online course dedicated to fire safety for landlords and letting agents.

A fire safety trainer for the RLA, Carrie Kus, said: “The legislation relating to fire safety in the private sector is complex and varies depending on the type of building and how it is leased out.”

Kus continued: “This course takes this complex area and breaks it down making it easy for the average landlord and managing agent to disseminate what they need to do to keep their tenants and their properties safe from fire.”

The new course will educate participants in a number of areas, including fire regulations, fire legislation, and carbon monoxide regulations, and it will look at the different types of buildings and how the latest regulations and legislation surrounding fire safety relates to each. The course will also feature information about fire risk assessments and offer tips on fire safety.

For those who would like to enrol on the course, costs are £16 for RLA members and £20 for non-members.
