Building Safety Charter
Building safety refers to: '...fire safety and structural safety of buildings. This may also apply to other disciplines such as electrical and gas safety, where these could impact the fire safety of the building.'
The Building Safety Charter is a: ‘Voluntary charter which was established by the Early Adopters Group with the support of the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, with the vision of creating “An industry committed to putting people’s safety first.” The Building Safety Charter is in the process of being established and rolled out across the industry with the Considerate Constructors Scheme as the appointed administrative partner. The Charter, which is intended to support and align with the Building Safety Regulator, focusses on putting safety first through independent verification and benchmarking; driving cultural and behavioural change; sharing and promoting best and better practice, increasing public reassurance and trust mainly through providing an independent public portal for engagement, and, contributing to the creation of safer buildings.’
