Fire Safety Conference: Building a safer future
The Grenfell Tower fire, which claimed the lives of 71 people and left many more without a permanent home, was the largest tragedy of its kind in the UK since the Second World War. It has prompted numerous inquiries and lead to a major rethink of fire safety standards.
The December 2017 government report “Building a Safer Future” found that the current system of regulation and enforcement is in need of “significant improvement”. Councils across the country are also working with housing providers in the public and private sectors to investigate if safety standards have been compromised by years of austerity.
Join us for the Fire Safety Conference where leading experts in fire prevention will explain how to make our homes and workplaces as safe as possible. Understand how safety standards are changing in the wake of the Grenfell tragedy, learn how to improve emergency response and see how different agencies can work together to improve and promote fire safety standards.
