Train and Education

A research paper by Iman Farah Mohamed published in the International Journal of Building Pathology and Adaptation, suggests that 37% of those surveyed believe industry knowledge on fire safety is inadequate and 28% believe university curricula provide sufficient education on fire-proofing buildings. It recommended that higher education institutions encompass fire safety training in their courses, to ensure the next generation of construction professionals have the skills needed to prevent future disasters. One respondent commented:

“There many students entering the industry without knowledge. This explains the poor selection and compromise on building materials.”
