Assistant Commissioner Steve Turek said, “Shell failed to respond properly to their risk assessment for three and a half years and had it not been for the fires which led to the inspection, it could have been considerably longer. Had Shell acted upon the findings of the 2003 risk assessment at the time, they would have avoided putting their staff at risk.”<br />For more information on fire safety or to update your current fire risk assessment, please contact Nemco Utilities Limited via the website www.nemco-utilities.co.uk<br />
