All of us have seen Grenfell images, so none of us should be under any illusions that disasters cannot strike. Yet a recurrent theme in any discussion is that we never seem to learn: fires similar to Grenfell have happened before.
We should not learn about failures just by hearsay. All those starting out in the profession should learn directly about past disasters small and large so as to be better informed and to minimse the risk of recurrence.
Dr Mann will give a general talk on failures and their causes endeavouring to show that there is commonality and that safety can be actively promoted.
Refreshments: Tea, coffee and sandwiches from 17:30.
Will qualify for 1.5 hours of CPD.
