Managing Partner/Senior Consultant
Let’s be clear right away: there is plenty you can do to identify the risks and to take measures to limit the consequences of an incident. Investment? Frequently zero. It is usually a matter of focus and attention, of organizational adjustments! It is also a matter of being in control and being on the driver seat yourself.
It starts with understanding your organization’s risks and with creating a situation where you understand whether these risks are sufficiently controlled not only from a legal perspective but also from a financial and continuity point of view.
We are talking about taking damage-limiting measures with detection and sprinkler system installations, extinguishers and burglar alarm systems. Does your organization have a continuity plan? And an emergency plan? A recovery plan, should the unthinkable happen?
How can we ensure there is a robust framework and decision process for overseeing the optimal Fire Safety Concept selection or combination of solutions which will satisfy your business needs but also the requirements from legislators and insurers?
This conference will address all aspects that influence the difficult choices that face stakeholders and why an Integral Fire Safety Concept shall be the foundation of the decisions to be made during construction and when the building is in use.
To draw up an Integrated Fire Safety Concept, it is important that all parties, both technically and operationally, work together. I would like to take you on a journey of discovery to find an answer how to achieve this.
