COVID-19 Statement

We are pleased to let you know that the Fire Protection Association remains open for business at this time. Our operational practices have been adapted to maintain a safe and productive working environment for our staff and customers:

We have adapted our office space to remain safe in the workplace, including a one way system, hand sanitiser stations, maximum room occupancy and daily temperature checks. 

Training: Classroom and web-based training courses are taking place with lower class sizes to enable social distancing, regular cleaning of common touch points and non-contact catering provisions at our venues.

Consultants: PPE is provided for our consultants and we remain vigilant regarding monitoring of temperatures and limiting face to face activities where possible.

Laboratory and testing: Safe working practices at our laboratory and test facilities have allowed us to continue to offer Sprinkler Head and Pipe testing, BS8414 testing and bespoke trials work.

Membership and publications: We are still able to process all shop orders, however postal services may take longer than usual. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Whilst our offices remain open, we ask that you only visit the site if you have arranged an appointment with a member of staff or have booking confirmation for one of our training courses. Those who have arranged to visit the premises will be sent our guidance and procedures for social distancing and safe working.

Anyone who attends the site must adhere to the following guidelines:

  • all staff, contractors and visitors will be expected to wear a face mask / covering when entering into or walking around the college buildings. These can be removed when seated in the training classroom if you wish
  • Do not come to the premises if you are feeling unwell in any way. Please follow the government advice on self-isolation. 
  • Maintain high levels of hygiene as advised - washing hands regularly for 20 seconds and using tissues to catch coughs and sneezes. 
  • Maintain social distancing (2m separation) and follow any additional guidance given
