Fire Safety Engineering – Rising to the Challenges and Creating Opportunities
February 5, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm
While there are major problems to be solved for the wider building design and construction industry, the Lacrosse and Grenfell incidents have helped prompt an examination of the role of fire safety engineers. Our current research is reviewing the competence, education and accreditation to improve overall design practice, and help lift the level of performance of fire safety engineers to that a true profession.
Our upcoming industry event will report on the three areas currently being covered by The Warren Centre’s Fire Safety Engineering Project.
1. The State of Fire Safety Engineering Regulations, Control and Accreditation in Australia
2. The State and Future Role of Performance Based Fire Safety Engineering in Australia
3. The Effective Professionalisation of Fire Safety Engineering.
Presentations will focus on the project’s evaluation of the current state of Fire Safety Engineering across all of Australia. There will also be a brief presentation on the current benefits of an updated International Fire Engineering Guidelines (IFEG) compared with a Fire Safety Verification Method (FSVM). You will have the opportunity to hear from the report authors as well as listen to a panel discussion and participate in a moderated Q&A. A networking session with drinks and canapés will conclude the afternoon.
