The tragedies of major fire incidents in recent years have cast a spotlight on fire safety standards, building regulations and risk management. Numerous inquiries have found a need for significant improvements and called for professionals operating within the built environment to take accountability for their role in driving fire safety standards within the sector.

This is leading towards a major cultural shift, with consideration of fire safety at every stage of a building’s life cycle essential to ensuring improved outcomes for the industry as a whole. Understanding the core elements are crucial, from design and engineering, to maintaining fire safety during occupation and ensuring ongoing compliance.

RICS Fire Safety Conference brings together leading experts in the field to address the key considerations, identify best practice and adopt strategies to ensure they are adhering to the highest standards. The September conference of this event sold out and, due to several ticket requests, we will be holding a repeat of this conference in November.
