Training Courses for the Fire Trade

Vraxis Safety Solutions

We offer Fire Risk Assessments and Fire Protection Consultancy services across the South East. We partner with other companies offering the complete Fire Protection package for your business. 

 

I am a Fire Risk Management Consultant based in West Sussex, having left the Ambulance Service in 2016 I found myself in a Facilities Management / Health & Safety Management Role within the care sector which is where my interest in the fire safety industry began, in that time I have attended a number of fire safety related courses and qualifications (Particularly Fire Risk Assessment), in 2020 during the lockdown I started my business Vraxis Safety Solutions and in 2021 I began delivering Ofqual Regulated Health & Safety and Fire Risk Assessment Qualifications. I am passionate about training and developing fire risk assessors and passing on all of the knowledge I have gained over the years, with competence coming under the limelight more and more, I decided regulated qualifications was the way to go to ensure Fire Risk Assessors could demonstrate their competence through a regulated framework and on-going CPD.
