Achieving safety Stan Lawrence, well remembered by many who worked in London in the ‘heady’ days when District Surveyors were technically independent from local authorities - and surely never thought of as being ‘out of touch and a bore - writes from Brighton, in response to Mr Whapple’s contribution (Verulam, 16 December 1994): Seen by some members as undiplomatic and abrasive and others as out of touch and a bore, even at 76 years I cannot sit back as an ex District Surveyor and remain quiet when public safety standards continue to deteriorate in the same relentless way as in the past half a century. I have spoken my mind often, including a published Viewpoint on 5 May 1986; others such as CIRIA have tried over the years; now SCOSS is putting in a tremendous effort with its work and reports, but the erosion of safety factors continues.
