Australia's New South Wales checks towers

(MENAFN) Australia's New South Wales government will check more than 1,000 residential and commercial towers that may have possibly scary cladding and introduce new fire safety reforms to stay away from a deadly inferno such as the Grenfell Tower fire in London.

"Our priority is to put consumers first and keep them as safe as possible in their homes," Kean said. "We'll be hitting every aspect of the supply chain."

NSW Minister for Innovation and Better organizer Matt Kean said on Friday the government managed an audit sample of more than 170,000 buildings built since the 1980s and found that 1,011 of them had cladding that may be possibly scary and need further inspection.
