This may also apply to other disciplines such as electrical and gas safety, where these could impact the fire safety of the building. Related articles.’
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, suggests that ‘Building safety’ under the Building Safety Regulations: ‘…refers to the major safety hazards that might result in multiple casualties, principally fire safety and structural safety of a building. Other safety hazards may be considered where these have potential to impact on the fire safety of a building, such as electrical and gas safety.’
