The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) has developed a new training course focused on the Building Safety Bill.
The course is designed to support building services professionals in preparing for and complying with the most significant reform to building regulations in 50 years.
Anyone responsible for the design, construction, maintenance or refurbishment of buildings will need to understand the Bill. This introductory course will set out the scope of the legislation and the implications for your business.
The course is designed for managers, directors, partners and those responsible for implementing the new building safety regime in any construction related business. It will also be relevant to those who operate and maintain buildings for client organisations.
Providing an overview of the scope and major provisions of the Building Safety Bill in England, this training outlines the requirements for the design, construction, and operation of buildings within the scope of the Bill. It details the structure and role of the new Building Safety Regulator and additional provisions for Higher Risk Buildings – those residential buildings over 18 metres in height or with seven or more storeys.
Whilst not exclusive to higher risk residential buildings, the Building Safety Bill does include a strengthened regulatory regime for high-rise and other in-scope buildings (higher risk buildings), improving accountability, risk-management, and assurance.
The Building Safety Bill introduces new regulations that place duties on those who procure, plan, manage and undertake building work. The course will cover the new duty holder roles and required competencies, including requirements for senior engineers, designers, and clients to demonstrate their competence.
The course also covers building safety in operation, providing an overview of the information management processes that will apply, including how gateways at key stages in design and construction are expected to operate, along with requirements for a Golden Thread and a Safety Case. Requirements for a Golden Thread relate to the management, recording and accessibility of information about a building that allows someone to understand the building and keep it safe. It also refers to how this information is managed, ensuring that it is accurate, up to date, clear and accessible to those who need it.
The training will take place live online from 10:00 – 16:00, providing the opportunity for 6 hours of continued professional development. Sessions will initially be running from 16 May through to September 2022.
