The public assume that buildings and bridges are safe, and they have confidence in the people who design, build and maintain them. The public are also confident that high standards are set and guarded by vigilant authorities. When there is a collapse the consequences are catastrophic for all concerned, and it is of immense value to identify why failures have occurred and to work towards preventing future failures.
That is the reason why Confidential Reporting on Structural Safety (CROSS) was established in 2005 in the United Kingdom. In South Africa the CROSS-SA website was created and launched recently. For structural engineering practitioners this is of extreme importance.
