BCP Episode 4: Feeling The Heat: Impact of fires and travel in hot locations.

In this month’s episode we discuss:

  • The impact of a fire at a Premier Inn Hotel in Bristol and how you might respond both a traveller and as a local business.

  • The Jim Beam warehouse fire in Kentucky and the environmental, operations and reputation impact, with a view to the UK COMAH regulations as a counter-point example of good practice.

  • The fire at Universal Studios and the destruction of original and back-up tapes.

  • Safe travel in hot locations and high security risk locations.
