Report of the Fire Safety Task Force

10:00 - 15:15

On 27 June 2017 in the aftermath of the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy in London, Minister Eoghan Murphy directed the National Directorate for Fire and Emergency Management to convene a Task Force to undertake a complete review of our approach to fire safety in Irish society. At FM Ireland in March 2018, John Barry described the initial actions taken to address public concerns and fears about fire safety in situations similar to Grenfell Tower in Ireland.

The Task Force Report dated 28th May 2018 includes the following recommendations,

  • Additional guidance for those with statutory section 18(2) responsibility for fire safety in buildings and a new requirement for a “Public Notice of Fire Safety” in every building to which section 18(2) applies which will assist the public in judging if they are safe in a building;
  • New and specific fire safety regulations for the recommended priority “sleeping accommodation” sector;
  • New fire safety regulations for large and complex buildings;
  • Action to identify and target those who neglect their fire safety obligations;

Our seminar will focus on these recommendations to assist those managing property to understand and implement change – Full Programme to follow
