Find out directly from the HSE what is required and what you need to be doing to prepare for the Building Safety Bill.

Do you know your safety case from your safety case report?  Do you have the information needed to identify and assess the building safety risks within your buildings? Can prove to the Building Safety Regulator that you have discharged your responsibilities effectively and that your high-rise residential buildings are safe from fire and structural collapse?

The “safety case” is an evidence-based approach in which the duty holder:

  • Identifies the hazards and risks,
  • Describes how risks are controlled, and
  • Describes the safety management system in place, including emergency procedures in the event of an incident.

They are common in many safety-critical industries – nuclear, military, railways, aviation, oil and gas operation, offshore and chemical manufacture – and are being introduced by the Building Safety Bill for occupied residential buildings over 18 meters.

    The new laws propose that people who manage or are responsible for high-rise residential buildings will:

    • Have to take all reasonable steps to make sure their buildings are safe
    • Put together a safety case
    • Produce a safety case report.

    It is likely that the statutory requirement for safety cases will be introduced in the first 12–18 months of the Bill receiving Royal assent – so it is essential that you start preparing now for the proposed regime to ensure you have the level of detail and information you need for each of your buildings in scope.

    The HSE has provided some guidance about what you will need to do to meet the new requirements:

    • Demonstrating how you are keeping your building safe
    • Demonstrating why you believe the measures you have in place to prevent and limit the consequences of a major accident in your building are sufficient and effective
    • Demonstrating that you have a robust approach to the ongoing management of the building to make sure those measures remain effective. This requires you to think about your building holistically and to think of it as a system.

    Hear directly from:

    • The HSE about the principles of the safety case; how to undertake a risk assessment process; lessons learnt to-date; what information will be needed to demonstrate you approach to the management and control of risk
    • Several housing organisations who have been proactive in developing their safety cases and Safety Case Reports about their approaches – what has worked, how to evidence safety claims and how to engage with residents.

    You will go away:

    • Knowing what the BSR will expect from you
    • Understanding the difference between a safety case and a Safety Case Report
    • The principles supporting the safety case
    • Insight into how to develop a robust safety case for each of your buildings in scope
    • Understanding:
      • What needs to be considered as evidence to back up your safety case
      • What works and what doesn’t!

    Essential for: Asset Managers,Strategic Leads, Health and Safety Managers, Compliance Staff, Housing Teams, Repairs and Maintenance Staff.
