Under the new Building Safety Act, a Safety Case Report must be submitted to the Building Safety Regulator for existing and new higher-risk buildings.
The Safety Case Report needs to demonstrate how fire and structural safety risks that could lead to a major incident are being managed, providing a summary of the steps the Principal Accountable Person has taken to identify, assess, remove, reduce, and manage building safety risks, thus demonstrating that reasonable and proportionate steps have been taken.
Join our webinar where leading experts share best practices and considerations on:
The purpose of the safety case and the Safety Case Report
Undertaking the building and risk assessments required to successfully compile the Safety Case Report
Writing a robust Safety Case Report, demonstrating understanding and management of risks, as required by the Building Safety Act
Understand the safety case and how this is summarised into the Safety Case Report
Learn the necessary steps involved in undertaking comprehensive building and risk assessments required for compilation into a successful Safety Case Report
Gain proficiency in writing a robust Safety Case Report that showcases risk understanding and adheres to the requirements of the Building Safety Act
Directors and Technical Directors, Design Engineers, Surveyors and Architects working in England and Wales, involved with existing and new higher risk buildings
Jane has over 30 years experience of working with old and existing buildings and has been convinced for many years that buildings should be repaired and reused rather than replaced. Jane has been actively involved with the Institution since 2000, serving as regional group Chair for Lancashire and Cheshire in 2006/7 and as 101st President if IStructE for 2022.
Patrick leads the Institution’s Building Safety Act initiative, which involves assessing the needs of members to meet the requirements of the Act and working with other PEI’s to produce guidance. Patrick has been an engineer since 1988 and chartered since 1993 and has designed structures in both the UK and overseas, with experience covering schools, universities, laboratories, commercial, residential and mixed-use developments.
Simon is a chartered engineer and Associate in Arup’s Safety Risk and Reliability practice. Simon’s risk assessment and safety case experience extends across the regulated transport, energy, and infrastructure sectors. More recently he has been involved in the development of a safety case framework for several HRBs.
Andrew is a specialist in building safety, timber and existing buildings. He is an Arup Fellow, a member of the HSE’s Building Advisory Committee and a Royal Academy of Engineering Visiting Professor and has been involved in assessing the safety of a large number of HRBs.
Kim has worked for HSE for over 30 years as a health and safety inspector, regulating various industries, including construction, chemicals and services. Recently, she was the operational Principal Inspector for construction, leading a team of regulatory inspectors and visiting officers in East Anglia. For the last two and a half years, Kim has led the BSR operational policy team in the new BSR for occupied higher-risk buildings, including developing the process and guidance on building assessment certificate applications.

A hands-on conference, tailored to SME owners, equipping SME practitioners with a comprehensive toolkit to capitalise on emerging industry priorities and maximise business potential.
This course is designed to provide structural engineers with a greater understanding of fire safety, key legislation, and the principles of risk analysis in order to ensure that adequate structural performance in fire is achieved. Participants will examine case studies of structural and non-structural failures as a result of fire.
This two-day, online course introduces seismic design of civil engineering structures. It builds on the basics of structural dynamics and engineering seismology. The course focuses on seismic loading and design codes, conceptual seismic design principles and analysis for seismic loading, and design and detailing of structural members.
This masterclass focusses on the complex commercial contracts produced by clients. It will help engineers analyse the commercial issues, possible implications, and risks to confidently formulate new negotiating strategies. Group exercises will utilise actual client contracts and devise practical responses.
This highly practical, half-day, online workshop teaches the skills SME practice owners and directors need in order to plan the medium and long term growth of their SMEs.
Online talk on The Building Safety Act 2022 and how it will impact the design, construction, and principally the operation of buildings.
This webinar, sponsored by Graitec, explores Advance Design, a globally recognized FEM software, uniquely blending user-friendliness, BIM integration, sustainability emphasis, and comprehensive capabilities to revolutionize structural analysis.
A technical seminar delivered by the Institution's Technical Director, Patrick Hayes, covering the Building Safety Act.
