Fire Safety Matters Podcast – Episode 24
24 January 2022
THE TWENTY fourth edition of the Fire Safety Matters Podcast is now live to view and available to download or stream for free. In this episode, Brian hears from Stuart Letley (director and owner of Clear Safety Services), while Mark chats once again with Warren Spencer (managing director at Blackhurst Budd Solicitors).
Clear Safety Services, the specialist consultancy focused on safety, compliance and risk management, boasts extensive experience of working with housing associations and education sector bodies, but also works right across both the commercial and public environments.
A Chartered Safety and Health practitioner, Stuart Letley founded the business back in 2015. Having studied for BSc and MSc degrees at the University of Birmingham and the University of Manchester respectively, he then went on to become managing director of RSA Environmental Health and director of safety services at Handsam.
In conversation with Fire Safety Matters’ Editor Brian Sims, Letley covers a number of key topics, among them the cladding issue, fire safety risks in the housing association sector, the recent fire at New Providence Wharf and also anticipated further changes in the fire safety environment now that the Fire Safety Act has passed into law.
Fire risk assessors
Western Business Media’s CEO Mark Sennett and Warren Spencer unveil some of the detail behind a joint two-hour webinar being organised by Fire Safety Matters and Blackhurst Budd. Taking place on Friday 11 March at 10.30 am, the online event is designed to examine whether or not the voice of the fire risk assessor is being heard.
In addition, we feature a round-up of several major industry news stories, among them the Government’s latest plans to address the cladding crisis and a record fine handed down to BUPA in the wake of fire safety failings.
