Ontario Fire Code - Fire Safety Inspections

14 Professional Development Hours

After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • develop an understanding of the Fire Protection and Prevention Act Legislation and the 2015 Ontario Fire Code Compendium that govern the fire and life safety of buildings and its occupants
  • recognize the different parts of the Fire Code and Referenced Standards that relate to fire safety inspections
  • discover the different types of inspections conducted by Fire Departments and the tools and equipment required to perform them
  • recognize how to conduct comprehensive fire safety inspections in a variety of occupancies by identifying types of fire code violations
  • use common Fire Department forms to complete Inspection Reports/Orders for violations and how to enforce them in Provincial Courts.

The Provincial Legislation and Fire Code mandate are to ensure that there is a minimum level of fire and life safety for buildings and the occupants in them.  The goal is to identify fire hazards so as a fire does not start. The consequences of a fire can result in injuries or death to the occupants; the loss of jobs and negative economic business impact to the building owner.

An in-class exercise will provide the students an opportunity to perform a Fire Code inspection and issue a Fire Safety Inspection Report/Order.
