ABTA'S new Travel course about Fire Safety by Terry Auld

This new one-day course will provide a foundation level knowledge of fire safety management in tourism accommodation and it will be perfectly run by our expert and trainer, Terry Auld. 

From Preverisk, we feel like introducing you a bit more to Terry Auld. It is not easy to summarize his large experience in our sector and more specifically, in fire safety but after many years trusting him, he proofed to be one of the best in this area and we highly recommend attending!

Terry Auld is an independent consultant to the travel industry on matters involving Health & Safety and is currently retained by us as a consultant and an advisor to the board. He started his career employed in the UK Fire Service responsible for training fire safety enforcement officers in Suffolk. In 1995, he was seconded to work for the Home Office as part of a team revising the UK Fire Service Training Manuals and in 1998, he set up his own fire consultancy.

Terry worked with the Federation of Tour Operators to draft their Health & Safety Preferred Code of Practice. In 2006, Terry joined Argent H&S as Development Director and continued to work alongside ABTA, FTO, IAGTO BETA and the School Travel Forum. Terry is a member of the Institute for Fire Engineers and attended the EU Committee for experts in Fire Safety. He works as a consultant advising tour operators on H&S and safety issues whilst also doing some training, mentoring and monitoring of auditors.
