Philip Sidman

The Institute of Fire Prevention Officers

Full Commercial Assessor

I retired from the Fire Service in 2005 after 32 years specialising in fire safety and started Prevention1st Fire Safety Advisory Services Ltd, which specialises in fire risk assessments, developing fire plans, fire safety training and construction fire safety.

I have provided fire safety expertise during both the construction of Terminal 5 at Heathrow and latterly at the Olympic Park where I undertook fire risk assessments and developed fire plans for the Olympic venues. During these projects I become an expert in construction fire safety.

As a fire safety consultant, I have carried out fire risk assessments on a wide range of commercial properties, social housing projects and hostels.
