NHS Estates Teams are invited to attend a free half day training seminar focusing on the Building Safety Act (BSA) 2022 and secondary legislation that continues to be rolled out.
The BSA is intended to improve the safety and quality of residential buildings across the UK. The regulations stem from an extensive, two-year investigation and evaluation aimed at identifying necessary improvements in safety procedures within the construction sector to prevent future fire incidents.
While the guidelines primarily target residential buildings, they also acknowledge the heightened risks associated with high-rise and high-risk buildings, such as hospitals and care homes. It is imperative for public sector establishments, including NHS Trusts and hospitals, to ensure they are not overlooked in the adoption of these advanced fire safety procedures.
This half day event will help NHS estates teams to prepare for the biggest set of building regulation changes the industry has seen in decades, and will provide crucial information for those involved in the design, construction, operation or maintenance of NHS buildings.
Industry experts addressing the event will be:
• Lorna Stimpson, Chief Executive Local Authority Building Control (LABC)
• Steven Walker KC, Barrister, Atkin Chambers
• Mark Lenton, Innovation Consultant, SRO Innovate
• Phil Morrison, (event Chair), Partner Real Estate, Clarion.
This event has been organised by Clarion on behalf of NHS Futures. It will be held on Thursday, November 2, 2023 at Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb) at 12 Bloomsbury Square, London WC1A 2LP, with registration and breakfast from 8.30am and speaker sessions to begin at 9am.
