The presentation will outline the process and techniques for the design, procurement, supply and integrity management of PFP across the asset life cycle, including hazard identification, materials selection, optimising, detailing, installation, inspection, maintenance and repair. While the talk will primarily focus on PFP measures used in the oil and gas industry, it should also be of general interest to structural engineers working in other sectors where fire protection is a consideration.

This evening presentation will take place on Tuesday 29th September at Royal Society of Edinburgh, 22-26 George Street, EH2 2PQ.
