HSE : Safety case principles for high-rise residential buildings

Following the introduction of the Building Safety Bill, HSE has published some early key messages on the proposed new safety case regime for high-rise residential buildings.

A key element of the proposed new regulatory regime is that high-rise residential buildings will require a safety case when they are occupied.

This will complement existing building and fire safety legislation and require those responsible to think critically about the potential fire and structural hazards in their buildings, and, show how they are keeping their buildings safe.

These principles for high rise residential buildings provides support on how to take sensible, risk-based steps to keep people safe in and around buildings.
