Building Safety Manager
In April 2022, the government announced a series of amendments to the Building Safety Bill, this included scrapping the role of Building Safety Manager. This they suggest will give the Accountable Person greater freedom to implement safety procedures that suit the circumstances of their building, and will also remove the associated cost of appointing a Building Safety Manager.
The Building Safety Manager had previously been described as: ‘Named by the Accountable Person, the Building Safety Manager will support the Accountable Person by carrying out the day to day functions of ensuring that the building is safely managed and promote the openness, trust and collaboration with residents fundamental to keeping buildings safe.' Where the accountable person is: ‘The duty-holder during a building’s occupation.’ Ref A reformed building safety regulatory system, Government response to the ‘Building a Safer Future’ consultation, Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, April 2020.
Setting the bar. A new competence regime for building a safer future. The Final Report of the Competence Steering Group for Building a Safer Future, published in October 2020, had suggests that: ‘The Building Safety Manager can be an individual or Manager (BSM) organisation whose principal role is to support the Accountable Person in the day-to-day management of fire and structural safety in the building.’
