WOBO considers it essential that its members and fellow professionals maintain their continuing professional development and competency criteria.



As we embrace the beginning of 2024, it’s a crucial time to focus on the future and the proactive steps we can take for the success and safety your organisation and the people within it.

One significant aspect that demands our attention is fire safety management – a critical component that ensures the well-being of people, the protection of our assets, and the continuity of our operations.

Now’s the time to prepare for the success of your organisation’s fire safety management by attending  The Fire Safety Event 2024, taking place on 30 April – 2 May 2024 at the NEC Birmingham.

FSM Webinar

Join us and Safety Chair on 21 February at 10.30am for an insightful webinar where we explore the different obstacles that can occur when evacuating a building.

In emergency scenarios, the seemingly ordinary aspects, hold distinct differences – similarly, stairs are more than just a means of transition. Our session focuses on unravelling the key obstacles often overlooked during evacuations and when choosing evacuation equipment.

Our webinar aims to equip attendees with a comprehensive understanding of the often underestimated complexities involved in evacuations, empowering them to proactively address these hurdles. With points on key responsibilities, legal requirements and considerations when choosing evacuation equipment, we hope that you join.

All attendees will receive a one-hour CPD certificate. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER
