Collaborative Reporting for Safer Structures (CROSS), which is operated jointly by the Institutions of Civil and Structural Engineers, has expanded its remit to include reporting on fire and structural safety from today. 

Built environment professionals and others have been empowered to help make structures safer, with the expansion and refresh of a collaborative and confidential safety reporting system.

Following the Grenfell Tower tragedy in 2017, Dame Judith Hackitt undertook an Independent Review of Building Regulations and Fire Safety. The final report recommended that CROSS “should be extended and strengthened to cover all engineering safety concerns”.

CROSS, founded in 2005, updated its name, to better reflect the organisation’s values of the sharing of safety related information for future learning and the development of safer structures. 

The confidential safety reporting system for buildings and other structures allows professionals and others to share their concerns about, and experiences of, fire and structural safety to help others make structures safer. CROSS publishes safety information, supporting continuous learning at all levels across the built environment, including individuals, organisations and regulators.
