Conference 2024 - Mitigating Risk 31st July to 1st August


Following on from our amazing conference last year and the Fire Risk Assessments that were presented by Ben Bradford from BB7, what is Risk Management to you? What do you do or need to do to reduce risk in your business through enhanced Inspection, Maintenance and Reporting procedures? Are we at risk of NZ Standards or International Standards not keeping pace with technology and putting our compliance regime under undue pressure?

Risk Management has prevention at its core, it involves the implementation of measures to eliminate or reduce the likelihood of hazards that could lead to fires or compromise the safety of building occupants. This encompasses a comprehensive approach that begins with innovative and thoughtful design, follows through with rigorous construction practices, which is a moving landscape with new construction methods, and extends into ongoing inspection and maintenance protocols which is where most of us become involved.

By embracing prevention with good management procedures, we can empower ourselves to anticipate and address potential issues before they escalate. We are investing in life safety, not just for the present, but for the future. Through education, innovation, and collaboration, we can create a built environment that can be more resilient in the face of unforeseen events.

In this conference, we come together to share industry insights, best practices, and cutting-edge technologies that enable us to enhance building safety and reduce our risks. By promoting a culture of prevention and instilling effective risk management practices, we ignite a brighter, safer future for all.
