Signage for Compliance, SS14.2 & SS15.4

1:00 PM
4:30 PM

Hybrid - Venue: Building and Fire Services, 30 Kioreroa Road, Whangarei 0110 and Online via Teams


Our half day workshops are designed to provide technical training and information for Inspectors, Testers, IQP’s, Council Officers, Property Managers and other interested parties working in the building compliance sector.

Signs play a critical role in assisting people in the event of an emergency and also to help the effective maintenance and performance of Specified Systems. We will look at the five categories of signs and the various actions that they influence.

Too often people have been accepting poor signage as they believe it is not a critical part of Compliance. This workshop will show you exactly why we need to maintain the signage and display the correct signs for each purpose.

The workshop will provide you with the core fundamentals for assessing Compliance for Specified Systems SS14.2 and SS15.4.
