As you probably already know, building safety and ensuring the wellbeing of occupants has become an increasingly hot topic in the construction industry.

The new Building Safety Act affects a wide range of stakeholders, including building owners, developers, and construction professionals. It imposes new responsibilities and obligations to ensure compliance with safety standards. Whether you are involved in the design, construction, or management of high-rise residential buildings, understanding the act’s impact is crucial to safeguarding lives and assets.

With the looming 30 September Building Safety Act deadline, staying informed about key regulations and your compliance has never been more crucial.

To help you navigate all these changes and comply with the new obligations, Operance and Rider Levett Bucknall (RLB) put together this free webinar that delves into the Building Safety Act, its implications, and – most importantly – how we can assist you in meeting your new responsibilities.
