Yes, Didcot Power took proper precautions to prevent the recent station collapse. In fact, I believe that none of the blame can truly be put upon Didcot power in the first place. Since the company hired an outside firm (Coleman and Company), I think that Didcot did the right thing and attempted to hand over deconstruction to a professional company. Obviously, Coleman and Company needs to be blamed for the catastrophe.
The plant was know to be in substandard condition and was scheduled to be demolished in the near future. It was a known hazard to the demolition company that was working there, so it hard to argue that the power company could have done anything more than schedule it for demolition as they did. Any risk of premature collapse was foreseeable by the demolition company.
Didcot Power took necessary precautions to prevent its recent station collapse. As a power company, it understands the importance of safety in the field. As such, it would hold itself to a high standard of safety, which would include both its workers and its stations.Failures happens, and this collaspe was out of Didcot Power's control.
Didcot Power did take the necessary precautions to prevent the recent station collapse because that particular station was scheduled to be demolished and has been closed since 2013. This means that Dicot Power knew of the horrible state of that station and deemed it worthy of closure and demolition. Also, the collapse occurred during preparations for the demolition, which was out of the hands of Didcot Power.
