The background

Passive fire protection is a critical aspect of building design and construction that focuses on slowing down or containing the spread of fire within a structure. It does not involve active systems like fire alarms or sprinklers but relies on the use of fire-resistant materials, structural design, and compartmentalisation to enhance fire safety.

Passive fire protection is an essential aspect of overall fire safety in buildings. Combined with active fire protection measures like fire alarms and sprinkler systems, it helps reduce the risk to occupants and property and provides additional time for safe evacuation during a fire emergency.

Properly designed and implemented passive fire protection systems are crucial for safeguarding lives and property in the event of a fire.

Fire safety belongs to everyone, and being armed with useful information means you can act responsibly regarding fire prevention.

For those of you on the frontline, it is vital that you manage risk early in the process and ensure that the wider community understands what it means to live and work in safe buildings.

The Introduction to Passive Fire Protection Webinar has been designed to equip attendees with critical knowledge and insights into fire safety measures, focusing on passive fire protection.
