Burgoynes' Chris Foster, Frank Anderson and Neil Sanders have teamed up with Thomas Miller to produce the UK P&I Club's latest Risk Focus on Engine Room Fires.

Engine room fires are one of the most common fires on ships owing to the presence of a wide range of sources of fuel, sources of ignition and running machinery. An extended period of time on board a ship without a fire incident can lead to complacency and a failure to prioritise fire prevention measures and simulated fire incident practices.

A PDF of the latest Risk Focus is attached below, accompanied by the referenced Technical Bulletins published by the the UK P&I Club.
