Sign in: Staff/Students
In response to the recent fire at a student accommodation block in Bolton, a review has been undertaken of fire safety across the academic and residential estate. This has found that all buildings are low risk.
In addition, the University is currently working with Liverpool Student Homes on a review of privately-owned halls of residence recommended by Liverpool’s universities and the outcome of this work will be shared as soon as possible. Work is also underway with the local authority on wider fire safety across the City.
This builds on the extensive review of all academic and residential buildings over 18 metres tall in 2017 following the tragic Grenfell Tower fire and a similar piece of work with Liverpool Student Homes.
The University’s Interim Director of Facilities, Residential and Commercial Services, Phil Marsh, said, “The safety of our students and staff is of utmost importance and we continually review the fire safety of our buildings to ensure a secure environment for all.
“Minimising the risk of fire is everyone’s responsibility and I’d urge students to follow advice to reduce fire risks and ensure they are familiar with their local fire evacuation plans.”
Most fires in the home can be prevented by taking some simple safety precautions.
There is a lot of advice about fire safety in the home available on the Fire Service webpages, but here are some top tips to get you started.
For more fire safety information, you can visit the Fire Kills webpages. You might also find the information on Fire Safety in Shared or Rented Accommodation helpful.
