The Accord on Fire and Building Safety in Bangladesh is pleased to announce the appointment of Stephen Quinn as Chief Safety Inspector (CSI). Stephen brings a wealth of applicable experience to the CSI post from his previous work with Lands Sterling in UAE and with various governmental building authorities in Scotland. His extensive work in building pathology, fire safety, structural analysis, and regulatory compliance is a strong match for the demands of the CSI position.
