HSE hosts its first building safety conference

The first Building Safety Conference, hosted by HSE’s Building Safety Regulator (BSR) is taking place today, Wednesday 22 March 2023, at Central Hall, Westminster


BSR was created following Dame Judith Hackett’s review and part of the building safety reforms since the Grenfell tragedy.


The event will see nearly 1,000 practitioners gather together to hear directly from the new regulator about the important changes that will come into effect from April 23, under the new Building Safety Act 2022.  Throughout the day, delegates will develop their knowledge and understanding of how the reforms will impact on them and their organisation.


As high-rise residential building registration for all Accountable and Principle Accountable Persons opens in April, the conference will provide insight and develop the knowledge of these individuals and organisations in relation to their responsibilities. 


There will also be an opportunity to hear more about the changes that will come into effect later in the year, with sessions from industry experts and keynotes speakers including our Chief Inspector of Buildings, Peter Baker.  The day is aimed at helping Accountable Persons, Building Control professionals and Construction and Design professionals, who will take on various new roles and responsibilities needed to comply with building safety law.
