Warehouse the source of China explosion that killed dozens
13 August 2015
A blast at a hazmat warehouse in Tianjin, China on Wednesday night killed at least 44 people with more than 400 injured.
Peter Ward, CEO of UKWA said: "The recent explosions in Tianjin were shocking to witness. We look forward to the output of the various investigations to understand how this disaster happened, and key learnings being valuable to ensure that such a situation is not replicated in China or elsewhere. Health and Safety is something UKWA takes very seriously and, while taking nothing for granted, the standards for storage of explosives in the UK, and crisis management protocols, are rigorous and laboriously controlled."
