Angus Sangster

International Fire Consultants Ltd

I became involved in the Waste Industries Safety and Health Forum in 2012. I was a serving Senior Officer in London Fire Brigade. I was a Hazardous Materials and Environmental Protection office with a national emergency response function and a qualified Fire Engineer. I led teams that designed and delivered the WISH real fire test program. In 2015 I retired from the Fire Service and joined IFC ltd as a Senior Fire Engineer. I have helped a number of clients within the waste sector develop bespoke solutions to FPP requirements. Since leaving the fire service I completed the real fire testing program. I continue to provide technical advice to the National Fire Chiefs Council and the WISH group. I am currently developing solutions for the built environments employed in the waste industry. I also provide advice to clients with regard to fire engineered solutions for other industrial and residential applications.
