Whitepaper: Effective Techniques for Robust OT Security

raising standards through competence

WATCH: FIA CEO Ian Moore at FIREX 2019

Ian Moore, CEO of the Fire Industry Association (FIA), tells FIREX TV about the role the not-for-profit trade association plays in raising standards in the UK fire safety sector.

Speaking at FIREX 2019 in the video below Moore, who topped our fire safety influencers list this year, highlights a particular focus on defining competence through third-party certification. He also talks about the FIA’s hard-won status as an awarding organisation.

The FIA is the largest fire protection trade association in the UK with more than 850 members. It provides a wide range of fire safety training courses and promotes best practice across the sector, promoting improvements to regulations and guidance and funding research projects.

Next taking place between 8-10 September 2020 at ExCel London, FIREX International is the world’s leading fire prevention and protection event where 18,000-plus fire safety professionals gather to network, attend the extensive education programme and see the latest fire protection technologies.
