Creating a new environment, system and culture of building and fire safety across the UK remains a top priority. Whilst a lot of work has been already achieved in this area, there is still much to do. As we look to 2021, there is a lot to anticipate and prepare for.

With the joint Building Safety and Fire Safety bills at different stages of parliamentary procedure, and a new regulator to be assigned as part of the Health & Safety Executive, it is imperative for stakeholders to stay on top of the latest developments and ensure their practice is up-to-speed.

This next event in our Building Regulations and Fire Safety series is designed to provide a more detailed look at what the new building safety regulator will mean in practical terms for your organisation.

Join this event to examine the role and scope of the regulator, hear from early adopters and their experiences with successfully implementing change, review best practice at each stage of a building’s lifecycle, as well as review how you can personally drive culture change in your organisation.
