Overview

The Building Safety Act came into force 28 April 2022, to make provision about the safety of people in or about buildings and the standard of buildings. It is in full effect under English Law but it also has requirements for those working in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

The Act has some retrospective requirements, but its primary focus is on the management of safety decisions and measures that will change the way buildings are constructed and maintained for generations to come.

We are joined by Guest Speakers - Richard Glazzard from Faithful+Gould and Stephen Workman from Atkins to increase awareness and give an overview of how the Act impacts on Infrastructure professionals. They will outline key requirements of the Act, including the responsibilities of an Accountable Person and the ‘Golden Thread’ of reporting, sharing and maintaining information.
