The best way to reduce the damage to property and the loss of lives is to fully understand and implement safe design and fire control regulations in buildings. This fact has been underlined by the Safety Design in Buildings Conference that was held in Bahrain.
Experts from the construction industry gathered at the conference, which was held on Monday at the Intercontinental Bahrain Hotel. The topic of discussion was fire safety standards and practices in the building industry.
The conference brought together fire consultants, architects, and testing experts to provide a platform for debate on the development and trends in the fight against fire. The general directorate of Bahrain Civil Defence was also present at the event.
Organizer of Intersec expo and chief executive officer of Messe Frankfurt Middle East Ahmed Pauwels said at the conference that it is important to ensure that structures and buildings around the region are in keeping with the safety codes brought into effect by the authorities. One of the best ways to do this is to create awareness among citizens regarding the significant role of safety measures in the protection of life and property.
Ahmed Pauwels added that the introduction of the Safety Design in Buildings Pavilion at Intersec 2016 is aims at achieving this very feat. The focus of the event is building construction, life safety design, fire rated building materials, fire protection, smoke verification systems, and fire alarms.
Intersec is the largest trade show in the world aimed at the safety, security, and fire protection industries. The 18th edition of the conference will be held next year from January 17 to 19 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
