The tragedies of major fire incidents in recent years have cast a spotlight on fire safety standards, building regulations and risk management. Numerous inquiries have found a need for significant improvements and called for professionals operating within the built environment to take accountability for their role in driving fire safety standards within the sector.

This is leading towards a major cultural shift, with consideration of fire safety at every stage of a building’s life cycle essential to ensuring improved outcomes for the industry as a whole. Understanding the core elements is crucial, from design and engineering, to maintaining fire safety during occupation and ensuring ongoing compliance.

Kizzy Augustin is a partner in the criminal litigation team with a specialism in health and safety. She joints a panel of leading sector experts at the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors' (RICS) Fire Safety Conference who will address the key considerations, identify best practice and suggest strategies to ensure health and safety professionals are equipped to adhere to the highest standards.
