Construction Fire Protection

Presented by David Laks, P. Eng., CFPS, RRC, ARM, Vice President, Risk Control Services Manager, HUB International

During construction, all buildings are more vulnerable to a fire than a completed building. Construction fires are hard to control due to the lack of fire protection, detection systems, large quantities of combustible materials on site, and lack of compartmentation. 

The presentation will review the high hazard activities/risks for structures under construction, renovation or demolition, and recent loss trends. These include hot work, temporary heating, roofing work, trash removal, cooking equipment, heating equipment, arson, etc.

Prevention and mitigation strategies will be presented for these high-risk activities/exposures.  

Changes to NFPA 241 (2019) Standard for Safeguarding Construction, Alteration, and Demolition Operations will be discussed.  These changes include temporary sprinkler protection, cooking operations, safeguarding construction operations for tall timber structures.
