As an example of their forward thinking approach, Risks Contained pioneered a new fire safety procedure for the recent Kasabian tour. This set a new standard and is an example about how industry experts are now thinking ahead and planning for the worst possible eventuality. Before you wonder why that's such an important step forward consider these few facts - in 2003 America suffered the Station Nightclub Fire (the fourth deadliest nightclub fire in U.S. history). It happened on February 20 2003 killing 100 people and injuring more than 200. In 2006 the Birmingham nightclub Edwards No.8 suffered a fire; 500 revellers had to flee and the famous nightclub was gutted. In 1985 at Bradford City Football Club, fire broke out at the main stand at the Valley Parade Ground and 56 fans were killed. In 1981 at the Starburst Cabaret Club in Ireland, 48 young people died and 128 were seriously injured when fire broke out in the nightclub. Although there were adequate exits the rapid spread of the fire resulted in the large death toll.
There's quite a sense of reassurance knowing that there are industry people out there who are able to grasp the concept of fire safety, particularly given the change in legislation as there are new fire and safety procedures under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRFSO). So the fact that a major industry player has taken this on board and moved forward with it can only be good news - read about it here
