Stockport Homes’ in-house Fire Awareness course, which is delivered by the Health and Safety Team has been assessed and approved for official Continuing Professional Development (CPD) accreditation.

The Fire Awareness course, which was developed following the new Building and Fire Safety Regulations, will see all new starters who work in SHG’s high-rise buildings complete the new course. The course has already been delivered to 30 new starters and will be rolled out every 6 months, strengthening SHG’s commitment to keeping its residents safe in their homes.

The Health and Safety Team are also in the process of creating other in-house courses that will also have official CPD recognition including:


  • Asbestos Awareness
  • Manual Handling
  • Working at Height
  • Risk Assessment Training 

Keeping our residents safe in their homes is a top priority for us. It’s a fantastic achievement to have one of our in-house training courses be given an official accreditation, so well done to the Health and Safety Team for your hard work, this accreditation shows our dedication and commitment to Fire safety.
