During the initial stages of the European Fire Safety Week, leading organisations including Euralarm, Eurolux, the European Association for Passive Fire Protection (EAPFP), and the Modern Building Alliance have announced a collaborative webinar.

The online event, titled “Attracting talent: a fire safety sector fit for the future”, will be held on November 13, commencing at 13.30 CET.

Significance of fire safety in modern construction

Fire safety stands as a pivotal component in contemporary building design and renovation processes.

With the advent of the new Energy Performance in Buildings Directive, the renovation rate of European structures is predicted to surge.

This directive provides an invaluable opportunity to seamlessly incorporate advanced fire safety solutions, ensuring enhanced protection for the European populace during fire emergencies.

The broad domain of fire safety not only plays a crucial role in residential contexts but also influences our interaction with community infrastructures such as hospitals, shopping complexes, educational institutions, and more.

Technological advancements demand new skills

The rapid progression of technology enables buildings to cater to inhabitants’ requirements more effectively.

This efficiency extends to streamlining building management operations and optimising energy consumption throughout the building’s lifespan.

Nevertheless, such advancements come with the prerequisite of cultivating new skill sets within the construction domain.

Challenges and prospects in the fire safety industry

In recent times, the fire safety sector has confronted hurdles in acquiring adept professionals.

Despite these challenges, with the impending workforce scarcity, prospects within the fire safety realm are anticipated to amplify.

Now, more than ever, the fire safety sector needs to attract talent in order to thrive.

The overarching goals of initiatives such as the Renovation Wave and the Digital Transition in Europe underscore this necessity.
