About this Conference

This year’s conference will examine critically important issues regarding fire safety management. From holistic fire strategies, risk assessment and statistics, evacuation preparation, to chemical safety. We will explore legislation such as Part B in relation to lifts / elevators, we will discuss important law regarding furniture / furnishings, and much more.

This conference will provide expert and experience driven guidance on a number of issues relating to fire safety, managing and risk assessment, and would be of huge value to fire professionals in Ireland.
