The number of overtime hours logged by Fire Safety Inspecting Officers over the last three years is: 2016/17 – 132 hours, 2017/18 – 973 hours and 2018/19 – 446 hours. The increase in the last two years is largely due to activity reviewing safety in high rise buildings following the Grenfell Tower fire.
