Engineering sector risk review

New innovations in technology have brought immense changes to the engineering sector over the past couple of decades. Whereas engineering used to be thought of as involving rather greasy metal fabrications, the subject is now synonymous with high-technology, small-scale and ultra-clean environments. This has had an impact on the number and types of fires occurring, and increases in both property and business continuity losses.

In this article, Adair Lewis analyses the latest data relating to large-loss fires in the UK engineering sector.

Topics covered:

- Fire hazards.

- Addressing the problems.

- Fire statistics.

- Large loss.
