Get practical insights and best practices on undertaking structural assessments to support the Safety Case Report required by the Building Safety Act.

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
