Register now for the IET National Conference for Electrotechnical & Building Safety Competence

The conference will feature, keynote speaker, Dame Judith Hackitt, who will discuss key points relating to accountability and competence including reference to her post-Grenfell report 'Building a Safer Future' (Jun 2019) which identified that the current system of building regulations and fire safety were not fit for purpose and that a culture change is needed to support the delivery of safe buildings.

Such system failure allowed a culture of indifference to perpetuate highlighting competence across the system is patchy and processes that drive compliance are weak.

Other speakers include IET President, Sir Julian Young, and CEO of the Engineering Council, Alasdair Coates.

They will also be joined by employers including Gillian George, Head of Operations, Sanctuary Maintenance Contractors Ltd, who will talk about the challenges of attracting and retaining an engaged and diverse workforce, and Alex Gray, Head of Operational Technology, Thames Water, who will highlight why recording and maintaining current competence matters.
