It is vital that buildings are safe and that their occupants feel safe.
Lessons need to be learned from the tragedy of the Grenfell Tower fire. Government and industry must continue to work together to ensure that this does not happen again.
The Construction Leadership Council (CLC) Building Safety workstream aims to support CLC and industry engagement with the Grenfell Inquiry, Building Safety Programme, new regulatory bodies and wider work for the built environment.
The aim is to identify and maximise effective links between the CLC and the work of the Building Safety Programme, HSE, OPSS and Industry Response Group. This includes targeted work to support key BSP principles (competence, products and golden thread), ensuring proposals are sustainable, the industry is ready for implementation of a new regulatory regime, and promotion of cultural change and leadership in the sector.
