Ian Robertson – Fire Safety Consultant, FRA Assessor & Trainer (Scotland)
FRACS, NAFRAR, MIFSM
Our specialist fire safety consultant, fire risk assessor and trainer, Ian has previously spent ten years working for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service where he gained valuable first-hand experience in executing the practical elements of an emergency response service and supporting the delivery of all aspects of training. As well as dealing with emergency incidents, Ian also carried out an extremely important role within the area of community safety; he recognised that the best way to fight fires is to prevent them ever starting, an aim which is achieved in a variety of ways, but is primarily focused on educating and informing.
Ian has been an independent fire safety specialist and risk assessor for the last five years or so, including carrying out assessments and working within the social housing sector. We are delighted to be able to draw on Ian’s valuable experience and knowledge of the Scottish Regulations and their application within the sector in Scotland. As the first and currently the only individual fire risk assessor in Scotland to be accredited with both UKAS independent scheme FRACS (Warrington Certification) and the IFSM’s register of Nationally Accredited Fire Risk Assessors scheme (NAFRAR Tier-3), Ian has demonstrated his competency as a fire risk assessor at a nationally recognised standard of competence and his work is continually evaluated.
We are delighted to welcome Ian on board as one of our specialist fire safety associates to work on a range of consultancy projects and to deliver fire safety related training.
