Description

Building Confidence through the Professionalisation of Fire Safety Engineering

The Warren Centre is working to redefine the role, competency, education and accreditation of fire safety engineers in Australia.

While there are major problems to be solved for the wider building design and construction industry, the Lacrosse and Grenfell incidents have helped prompt an examination of the role of fire safety engineers. Our current research is reviewing the competence, education and accreditation to improve overall design practice, and help lift the level of performance of fire safety engineers to that of a true profession.

The landscape of what it means to be an Engineer in Australia is shifting rapidly. The Warren Centre's project on Fire Safety Engineering has been on the forefront on this movement, and we think it's time we showed the wider audience where we are at and where we are going.

The Warren Centre project has released to date four Reports and one Interim Report. We have co-ordinated industry, academia and government to consolidate the current position whereby QLD, VIC and NSW are registering Fire Engineers.

What the person will experience (their 'journey')

Presentations will focus on the project’s evaluation of the current state of Fire Safety Engineering across all of Australia. You will have the opportunity to hear from the report authors as well as listen to a panel discussion and participate in a moderated Q&A. Morning Tea, Lunch and Afternoon Tea are included along with a networking session with drinks and canapés that will conclude the afternoon.
