FIA urges fire safety-focused practitioners to complete CROSS survey
28 April 2020
CROSS (Confidential Reporting on Structural Safety) is a project that has been commissioned following the Dame Judith Hackitt report on the Grenfell Tower fire. As part of a planned update to the existing website, Structural-Safety UK is now focusing its attentions on how best to position CROSS in the future.
In order to do this, Structural-Safety UK has used an agency to create some visuals and wording to make the project as inclusive as possible. This means inviting feedback from those individuals and teams who are likely to use CROSS now and in the future. The agency has created a short survey to help do this, which is where FIA members can come in.
Ian Moore, CEO of the FIA, is asking the Association's members to help Paul McNulty, senior engineer from Structural-Safety UK, with a broad cross-section of opinions by completing the survey. They can also send the survey to others who have an interest in safety, residential buildings or tall buildings.
Respondents do not have to be structural or fire safety experts as Structural-Safety UK is keen to hear a wide range of opinions from people across the industry.
The survey should take around ten minutes to complete and responses will be anonymous. The survey organisers have offered a chance to enter a prize draw to win a £200 Amazon voucher at the end. The closing date for responses to the survey is Friday 1 May.
The data will be used by the agency for the purposes of this project only and will be deleted when the work is complete. The only time someone will be contacted about the survey again is if they win the prize draw.
