The architect who helped designed the templates for Scotland’s largest hospital has warned that patients are at risk for failures to comply with fire safety regulations. The fire safety flaws news comes after it has emerged that the insulation panels on Grenfell tower were also fitted on the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital in Glasgow.
Following the Grenfell Tower fire, a survey of more than 500 landlords has found that more than half have taken measures to check fire safety arrangements in buy-to-let properties. The survey found that 32% of landlords had checked their fire alarms, and one in six had arranged for a professional fire risk assessment to be carried out.
At least 80 people are believed to have perished in the June 13th fire in the Grenfell Tower Block in London. The final death toll will not be known for months.
