Fires can have a devastating toll on businesses and communities, with far-reaching impacts. Major fire incidents in the last few years (such as Grenfell Tower, Campbellfield factory, West Footscray warehouse) have stimulated significant activity and development of fire safety, essential safety measures, and emergency management legislative frameworks across Australia.
Join us for this webinar where our Fire Safety, Essential Safety Measures and Workplace Emergency Management specialists will host a panel discussion on the current fire safety legislative environment and trends across Australia and some of the pitfalls and challenges to applying robust approaches to fire safety. The panel will also discuss emergency management plans and the practical measures that asset owners, managers and building occupants can implement to effectively protect themselves and their businesses from fire risk.
