New report: Fire safety during construction and rehabilitation of buildings

Recording of autumn webinar

RISE Fire Research’s autumn webinar 2023 was held 17th November at 9-11. At the webinar we presented new research finding in areas such as: battery fire and escape routes, flammable Christmas decorations, fatal fires in Norway, as well as fire safety when constructing or rehabilitating buildings. The research is funded by the Norwegian Directorate for Civil Protection (DSB) and the Norwegian Building Authority (DIBK).

There were more than 170 participants present, and we received dozens of questions from the audience. Thank you to everyone who participated! If you have feedback for us, please send us an email:
