Building Contents the Unseen Hazard

Date: , Track: , Location:

Synopsis:

FM Managers should be aware of the hazards and regulations attempting to control this unseen hazard. Is the purchase of building contents part of the fire strategy?

What is very often overlooked is the fact building contents (technically referred to as furniture and fixings)are often most likely

THE “item first ignited” and are the cause of fire spread to secondary materials.

Recent changes to UK Fire Safety regulations have refocused attention on this subject.

Speakers will also discuss how to manage or control furnishings and fittings in different Purpose Groups of buildings, how to identify suitability via labelling.
