What we do

The Fire Risk Management Section (FRMS) provides a forum for exchanging ideas and experiences across a wide cross-section of stakeholders in the fire sector and facilitates networking among professionals.

Our aims

  • increase the membership
  • provide support to the Ireland Branch, to members and/or affiliates
  • provide articles for publication on the IOSH website and to promote the FRMSS through information and/or articles in SHP, Health and Safety Review, and other Fire publications
  • respond to relevant consultative documents as and when required
  • harness the committee's multidisciplinary expertise for the benefit of  our  members
  • be vigilant in relation to developments in fire risk management
  • develop links with Fire Services, the Chief Fire Officers' Association, the Health and Safety Authority, the Institute of Fire Engineers and enforcing authorities  
  • organise conferences on fire-related topics and networking for attendees that can help members' Continuing Professional Development.
