Dear BSIF members
It is with heartfelt and the deep sadness, that I have to tell you that our friend and colleague Kevin Warren was killed on Sunday April 5th in a motorcycling accident.
Kevin was for many years Chairman of the BSIF Test and Certification Association and a key contributor to Vertical, Horizontal and Ad Hoc Groups at the EU level. Kevin’s contribution to the Personal Protective Equipment Industry and BSIF was immense. Indeed, he had been a great help to me over the last few weeks in examining and confirming advice that I was giving to the authorities and the UK Government. He was greatly respected and an outstanding professional in his field. During the current COVID crisis he had been working directly with NHS trusts on the safe provision of PPE.
Kevin, a former recipient of the BSIF Outstanding Contribution Award, will be missed greatly.
I’m sure that you will join with me in passing our most sincere condolences to his wife Pam, and to his children.
