Chris Tiff: Sad farewell

5 Sep

It is with great sadness that the British Safety Council records the death of Chris Tiff, a tireless campaigner for workers health and safety. Chris was a proud member of the Union of Construction, Allied Trades and Technicians (UCATT) and always put construction workers first, never afraid to speak his mind and always determined to ensure their voices were heard. 

One of Chris’s many achievements was the establishment of the George Brumwell Learning Centre based at Canary Wharf. The Learning Centre gives construction workers the opportunity to further their skills in such subjects as information technology and English.

He was always willing to try new things, for example taking up the challenge as one of the first Worker Safety Advisers (WSA) and providing health and safety advice to workers who lacked access to expert independent health and safety advice. Chris worked incredibly hard and used his experience to ensure the WSA pilot’s success.

He will be sorely missed.
