Principles to prevent another Grenfell Disaster

29th September 2022 5:30 pm

The growth of emerging offshore energy technologies like the offshore wind has led to a quest to examine the suitability of the regulatory design for ensuring the safe construction, operation, maintenance and decommissioning of these installations. While valuable synergies can be drawn from analogous offshore energy industries like oil and gas based on previous experiences, the Grenfell Tower fire disaster that left 72 people dead, surprisingly provides some valuable lessons. This presentation will provide three key lessons:

1. The growth, complexities and health and safety implications of emerging offshore energy technologies.

2. Understanding the regulatory tools that are required to mitigate health and safety risks in established and emerging offshore energy industries.

3. Lessons from analogous offshore oil and gas industries as well as the Grenfell Tower Disaster.
