After Grenfell: re-evaluating fire risks and saving lives by Andy Grimshaw, Operations Manager, Spectra Compliance

We become anaesthetised when we see catastrophes every week, until we watch a major loss of life event in the heart of London, our capital and one of the world’s richest cities… 

What to us was unimaginable or inconceivable, has already been described as predicted and foreseeable by the residents, many of whom lost family members and friends in the disaster… 

With inquests, investigations, inquiries, independent reviews, not due to report for some time, and prosecutions already being discussed, how can we be confident that we understand our fire risks and take appropriate action.

We are pleased to confirm that Bobby Chakravarthy (APS President) and Phillip Pearson (IIRSM Chief Executive Officer) will be in attendance. They look forward to meeting with as many members as possible.                                                                    

RSVP: We ask you kindly to pre-register for the branch meeting by adding the event to your cart and following the steps. Alternatively, email This will help us to arrange adequate facilities and ensure refreshments are available.
