CES Hire Toolbox Talk Tuesdays: Fire safety on site
On the 14th June last year 'fire' was at the forefront of all our minds as we watched the horrifying scenes unfold at Grenfell Tower. Fluorescent against the jet black London night, the flames enveloped the 23 storey tower block. Thick plumes of smoke billowed into the night's sky as multiple fire engines tacked the ferocious blaze which took the lives of 72 people. We think of these incidents as things that we only ever see on the news, in films and on those big budget soap character exit storylines but the truth is fire killed 321 people in the UK last year and hospitalised 3263 people. So often fire can be prevented in simple ways which we addressed in this week's Toolbox Talks Tuesday.
