Little over a year ago, the country was shocked and shaken by the disaster of the Grenfell Tower that tragically saw 71 people lose their lives.
Although the authorities have previously concluded that the fire was able to spread so rapidly due to the cladding on the exterior of the building, a recent test on the fire doors that were fitted throughout the entire tower block lasted only 15 minutes, despite officials stating they were completely fire resistant for 30 minutes. They failed in half the time. In disasters like this, time is precious: time could have potentially saved more lives of innocent people.
If we can learn anything from Grenfell, it is the importance of safety and ensuring your organisation meets every health, safety and welfare requirement. Many of the smoke alarms fitted in the tower did not work, and that combined with ineffective fire doors and unsafe and inappropriate cladding led to one of the biggest disasters the UK has ever seen.
