The Grenfell Tower Fire: Implications for business
The tragic fire at the 24-storey Grenfell Tower block of public housing flats in north Kensington on 14 June 2017 has made that building a landmark in a number of ways. The cause and lessons are being examined in an inquiry conducted by Sir Martin Moore-Bick.
This breakfast briefing will look at what help can be given to industry and interested stakeholders in order to understand the circumstances and ramifications of the fire and appreciate what this may mean for business organisations. The event will be aimed at all those concerned with the safety of tall buildings regardless of age, structure or use, and the resilience aspects of recovery. It will be of particular benefit to those with safety and security responsibility for residential premises including blocks of flats, hospitals, halls of residence and hotels. The session will include comments on the government’s new Crisis Response Task Force.
