The facilities management industry now more than ever is required to take a lead role in ensuring the safety of the occupants within the buildings they manage. The rapid pace of regulatory change means facility managers can no longer rely solely on their design teams or maintenance providers to ensure they’re meeting their legislative obligations.

To help building owners gain an understanding of their fire protection obligations and the latest regulatory shifts, Fire Protection Association Australia is bringing together the largest gathering of fire safety and protection experts, regulators and service and equipment providers in the Southern Hemisphere at the upcoming Fire Australia 2018 conference and tradeshow.

The pressure on stakeholders within the fire safety industry, including facilities management, has never been greater. The need to stay up to date with issues, solutions and new technologies is imperative. The recent issues surrounding non-conforming building products and illegal building activity, now requires a greater understanding of the design and construction of buildings by the facilities management industry.

Fire Australia is tailored for a wide variety of audiences, including facility managers and other people working within the industry. At Fire Australia you will have the benefit of learning from industry experts, speaking directly to suppliers and building networks and relationships with like-minded professionals. This event is the place to be to stay up to date on all things fire safety, fire protection and bushfire safety. The world class line up of speakers and workshops will ensure that you walk away from the conference with new information on how to improve life and property safety.

The event is run by FPA Australia, the peak industry body which supports and represents accredited and competent practitioners working across all disciplines of the fire protection, building and construction industry through training, educational guides, accreditation and events.
Don’t miss out on your opportunity to learn, share and connect with key stakeholders in the fire protection and safety industry and ensure your building and its occupants are protected against fire!
