BSR launches conference to share building safety knowledge

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has announced it will be holding its next Building Safety Regulator (BSR) Conference on Tuesday 21 May 2024 at NEC Birmingham.

In light of the changes brought by the Building Safety Act 2022, the conference will be an opportunity for “front-line duty holders” to hear directly from the BSR and those in the industry and have their questions answered.

As the HSE explains, the conference will see industry leaders and policy experts at the BSR share actionable insights, effective risk management strategies, and practical guidance on the latest developments in building safety.

To be held at NEC Birmingham, the free event is aimed at the practitioner level and is primarily for building control professionals, accountable and principal accountable persons, fire and rescue service personnel, construction and design industries, and organisations engaged with residents.

The HSE anticipates the event will enable attendees to navigate the changes brought in by the Building Safety Act and “discover how they can play their part in driving the necessary culture change across the built environment”.

As previously reported by the FPA, the BSR has also been hosting a webinar series designed to educate and inform stakeholders and duty holders involved in the wider built environment. Previous sessions and details of upcoming live webinar sessions can be found here.
