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.
