The free CPD certified workshops will cover topics ranging from flammable building materials to improving safety through technology.

 

In light of recent tragic events, UK Construction Week, a Media 10 event and the leading for the construction and building sector, has taken the most positive step possible by launching free unbiased, factual workshops to anyone working in the industry. These free, CPD-certified sessions - taking place from 10 – 12 October at the Birmingham NEC - will address the specification and use of products from the viewpoint of safety, quality and fire prevention in buildings to ensure that all participants are given the most up-to-date advice and guidance on the main issues affecting the built environment following the tragedy at Grenfell Tower.

These topics have been under intense public scrutiny at a national level, and whilst Grenfell will change the construction industry forever, companies must come to terms with the fact that ‘doing enough’ is no longer good enough.

To assess the next steps towards a positive development, UK Construction Week issued a survey which received over 1000 responses from construction professionals. This survey asked them to identify the professional bodies they want the most up-to-date guidance from; the type of products and services that are now a priority for on-going and future projects; and how the industry can learn from this terrible event and move forward. The results have shaped a series of workshops, which will seek to clarify the latest advice and guidance for the industry, including Building Regulations, Fire Prevention, Flammable Building Materials, Health & Safety and Improving Safety through Technology.

 Nathan Garnett, Event Director, said, “In light of recent tragic events in London, and the fact that there are millions of square metres of building space being refurbished, refitted and built right now, the industry must act swiftly to decipher the latest guidance and advice by separating the facts from the fiction. By collaborating with the authorities and professional bodies, we at UK Construction Week have responded with a series of free, CPD certified workshops to address the latest issues and provide the facts from people the industry knows and can trust.”

Available to any companies involved in the specification or use of products or services in construction or who are responsible for Health and Safety in commercial or residential buildings the show is offering completely free subsidised places on the workshops.
