Event Summary


Book NowThis FREE webinar from Structural-Safety will discuss the importance of learning lessons from structural failures and why these lessons must be re-learned by each generation to prevent similar occurrences happening again.

Examples of major safety incidents, such as the collapse of a steel frame building in London and the collapse of a masonry wall at a school in Edinburgh will be discussed.

Structural-Safety operate CROSS (Confidential Reporting on Structural Safety), a confidential reporting scheme for safety matters concerned with the design, construction and use of structures. The presentation will discuss the benefits of this scheme and will include examples of how CROSS reports are used by Structural-Safety to influence change in the industry.

This talk is a great opportunity for Building Engineers to reflect on how robust their organisations are at preventing structural failures.
