BUILDING SAFETY AND RESIDENTS’ VOICE

“Residents of HRRBs should have the right to access fire risk assessments, safety case documentation and information on maintenance and asset management that relates to the safety of their homes.” – Building a Safer Future (May 2018)


Building safety for everyone

Safety features

The new Building Safety Regulator will demand a ‘Golden Thread’ of fire and life safety information for all HRBs.

The purpose of the digital record is to ensure that accurate building information is securely created, updated and accessible, at points throughout the building life cycle. This will support efficient and effective oversight by the regulator.”

“Thousands of people in the UK are living in flats they cannot sell, because the outside wall is covered in cladding. Sometimes it’s combustible, like the material that turned Grenfell Tower into an inferno. But people may become prisoners in their homes even when it isn’t.”
