The future for fire risk assessment and risk management
Competency proposals post Hackitt will have widening impact on the fire, design, construction and building management sectors.
This will require broader analysis of whole building and lifetime issues for all engaged in the process that deliver and maintain fire safe buildings, looking beyond the HRRB environment to solutions suitable for potentially, all buildings. One of the principle mechanisms for ensuring the safety of occupants will be an effective fire risk assessment regime, completed by suitably competent persons and a sea change in the approach to designing properties and subsequently managing the occupied premises. This session will consider the possible impacts for participants in ensuring the safety of building occupants in both the new build environment and existing premises, as well as what immediate actions should be taken whilst the implementation of Hackitt recommendations and outcomes of the recent Building Futures and fire legislation consultations are awaited – particularly for those assessing and managing fire risk.
