Emerging Trends Webinar Series 2019
Fire Risk on Construction Sites
Risk Engineering Track
The presenters will share cases where during surveys of active construction sites, serious fire safety violations were identified. Especially when projects are delayed for whatever reason, project operations attempt to make up for lost time by implementing expedited schedules, which in many cases results in forgoing fire prevention measures. Relying on their vast experience in the field, the presenters will describe the factors that contribute the most increased risks of fire on construction sites.
This webinar is designed to provide insurer, reinsurers, loss adjusters and risk managers with information on how to assess the fire risk on construction sites at different phases of a project. The presenter will discuss what to look for when assessing the risk on a construction site and how to ascertain hazards, both visible and non-visible.
