Certificate of competence for Rodney Pearce

Rodney Pearce, one of the UK’s most senior and highly respected Fire Risk Assessors, who recently passed away, has been awarded a posthumous certificate of competence from Warrington Certification Limited (WCL).

Receiving the award on behalf of Rodney were Fireco’s MD Neil Purssey and Tom Welland, with Fireco Fire Risk Assessor Cyril Moseley who was also awarded the WCL Competent Fire Risk Assessor Certification.

Simon Ince, manager of personnel schemes for WCL, presenting the awards said, ‘Congratulations to Cyril on being one of the first Fire Risk Assessors in the UK to successfully attain Competent Fire Risk Assessors Certification. I wanted to come here myself to present this certificate as Fireco have assisted us in pioneering this scheme and I also know they are extremely passionate about appropriate certification for Fire Risk Assessors.’ Speaking of Rodney he added: ‘Presenting his award to Fireco is a fitting tribute to a very capable man, who will be missed by all those in the industry who knew him.’

WCL, in partnership with the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), operates an independent third party ‘competent persons’ scheme in accordance with ISO/IEC 17024:2003. This UKAS accredited scheme, called FRACS (Fire Risk Assessors Certification Scheme), has been designed to allow fire risk assessors to prove, through third party certification, their competence to complete ‘suitable and sufficient’ fire risk assessments as required by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order (RRFSO).
