Grenfell. What Went Wrong? The Principles of Fire Safety in Tall Buildings
Thursday, 7 December 2017
6.30 - 9.00 pm

Geoffrey Fordham, Senior Vice President, Engineering, Safety & Security Onyx Hospitality

In Thailand the enforcement of Fire Life Safety regulations are not a strict as in many western counties. We often read about serious fires which could easily have been avoided.

Do you have a professional who understand the principles of Detection, Protection (both passive and active) and Means of Egress? Are you confident your property is safe?

During this 1 hour session we will review the key principles of detection, protection, containment and egress of fires in all buildings, using the tragic fire in Grenfell Tower London as an example. Participants can expect to understand these key principles of fire safety in buildings and what they can do to minimize the risks in their own properties.

This briefing will be led by Geoffrey Fordham, a Certified Fire Protection Specialist with the NFPA and currently employed by ONYX Hospitality Group as Senior Vice President of Engineering, Safety & Security. Previous to this he held senior engineering and fire safety positions for Shangri-La in Bangkok and Jumeirah in Dubai.
