Conference 2023

Building Knowledge for Success - Setting the standard for the future

ABC is putting the blocks together to build a stronger industry foundation. If we continue to do the same things, we will continue to get the same results. Technology is changing at a far greater pace than our legislation and standards.

We need to challenge and change ourselves to achieve more successful outcomes. Best practice is developed by us.

We can’t do this alone, we need everyone working together,

"He waka eke noa"

We are please to announce that our keynote speaker for Conference 2023 is Ben Bradford, founder of BB7. 

Ben is the Chairman of the panel and the former technical author of PAS 7: 2013, a strategic fire risk management standard. The fire safety profession has been turned on it's head, since the tragic events in June 2017, yet the objectives Ben originally set out to achieve with PAS 7, are just as relevant today as they were then. An enhanced fire risk management system can improve assurance levels, it can ensure an auditable trail and trace-ability. When implemented properly, it can ensure that the necessary "baton passing" between stakeholders happens, and a 'Golden Thread' of information is maintained.

“I still hold the view that a building with first rate fire precautions yet poor management, may pose a greater risk than a building with limited fire precautions but very good management.” – Ben Bradford

Ben started the PAS 7 journey back then and he is proud that it has evolved into BS 9997: 2019 - Fire risk management systems, part of the 999 series.
