Crossrail LFB Emergency Services Liaison

Summary

The London Fire Brigade have officers seconded to Crossrail to support activities ensuring that sites are as fire-safe as possible. This paper discusses lessons learned from the London Fire Brigade on collaborative working with Crossrail and recommendations for future major projects as well as sharing the various requirements and other key documents used on the programme.

By having a London Fire Brigade (LFB) liaison officer embedded within the Crossrail project, there has been a risk reduction to the LFB and Crossrail. This has been achieved through the development and implementation of fire assurance assessments, operational response planning, exercise planning and safety event investigations. This serves as a good practice model for reducing fire safety risk on major projects that cross boroughs and/or have multiple construction sites.

This paper will be of interest to fire safety managers and health and safety managers responsible for fire safety on major projects.
