WRAP to impart fire safety courses in Pakistan
05
Dec '12
Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP), in partnership with Accordia Global Compliance Group and in collaboration with several Pakistani trade bodies, will offer 5 fire safety training courses in Karachi and Lahore during December 2012.

This will mark the first time that an international training workshop addressing the crucial industrial needs of fire safety and risk assessment is being organized in Pakistan by WRAP. These courses will be highly beneficial to the industry by providing essential education on creating safe working conditions in export-oriented production units.

The sessions will focus on fire prevention and will cover a range of topics including Pakistani fire laws, fire safety & protection, fire spread & combustion, routine fire prevention measures, effective response during fire, and risk assessment.

Instructions on how to formulate an evacuation plan will also be included, along with practical fire-fighting demonstrations and an introduction to the internationally-practiced "5 Step Risk Assessment Process."

"We have seen a lot of positive results with the fire safety training we developed for Bangladesh and are looking forward to launching this highly successful course in Pakistan. The recent tragic fires in the region serve as sad reminders of how critical this issue is.

WRAP is dedicated to promoting safe, lawful, humane, and ethical manufacturing and to helping factories prevent such tragedies from occurring," said Avedis Seferian, WRAP's President & CEO.

The day-long courses will be held in Karachi on December 17, 19, 20 and 22 and in Lahore on December 18.
