Building Safety Management

All those responsible for the post-occupation management of buildings must have a clear understanding of safety critical management systems and information, notwithstanding the requirements introduced through the Building Safety Act. RLB, one of the first UK consulting firms to train its teams on building safety en masse, can guide you on how to meet your duties and obligations, regardless of whether you are the Principal Accountable Person or Accountable Person.

Manage safety information better

Managing building safety requires a thorough understanding of the level of information held, as well as the quality and functionality of this information. We can assist you in analysing your existing building information in accordance with the Building Safety Act and its secondary legislation, identifying any gaps that need to be filled and working with you to close them.

Support from registration to certification

Buildings that meet the requirements of the Building Safety Act must be registered and a building safety certificate obtained. Our team of experts can support you in all aspects of this process, including building safety cases and reports, mandatory reporting procedures and resident engagement strategies.

Improve engagement with residents

The Grenfell tragedy highlighted the importance of involving residents in safety decisions. Defining how and what information should be communicated to residents must be part of a strategic communication plan. We can facilitate the review and implementation of an effective engagement strategy, working with you to improve communication between your teams and residents.

Develop safety management systems

Building safety management does not end with certification, and those responsible for managing safety in buildings will require a process for ongoing coordination and monitoring. Building safety management systems can assist in complying with legal duties as well as enhancing the efficiency of the operation of buildings. Our team will help you develop the right system for your needs.
