Building on the safety case principles published by HSE last year, HSE says it has continued its work with partners in the public and private sector to develop information that it hopes will form a toolkit for building owners and managers.
The first part of this toolkit is a short summary of the key things they can do to prepare. It’s intended to be a quick read to help people and organisations to understand what they can do.
In the coming months this will be followed by further information that builds on the safety case principles from last year. This will include new material that we have introduced following the very helpful suggestions and comments we received from early adopters, private landlords, social housing providers, and other industry consultees.
Tim Galloway, Deputy Director of the Building Safety Programme at HSE, encouraged organisations and people to start preparing: “I am really pleased that we’ve published this information in such a digestible form. I want to thank all our partners for their invaluable contribution.
“We all want safe buildings and I would encourage building owners to start their preparations for the new regime now rather than wait for all the details to be developed. I think the existing principles, this headline document and the further information to come will really help.”
