We believe that everyone working in and with the construction and property industries needs to put people’s safety first

Building a Safer Future has been established to promote a culture change in the construction and property industries to ensure that buildings are safe for those living and working in them, now and in the future.

We have developed a Building Safety Charter which we would encourage all those involved in the life cycle of a building to sign up to.

What is the Building Safety Charter?

Vision: An industry committed to putting people’s safety first

The Building Safety Charter consists of five pledges that demonstrate commitment to protecting life by putting safety first, ahead of all other building priorities. It was developed by the Industry Early Adopters Group as a first step towards spearheading the cultural and behavioural changes required across the industry – to achieve a safer building system.

We want to encourage companies from across the design, construction, housing management and maintenance sectors to sign up to the Charter and demonstrate their commitment to building safety.

Charter Commitments

Collaborate to spearhead culture change and be the voice of building safety across our sector.

Be transparent in the interests of safety, sharing key information with residents, clients, contractors and statutory bodies in a useful and accessible manner in the design, construction and occupation phases of the process.

Make safety a key factor of choice in who we work with, ensuring that building safety is placed at the centre of selection decisions without compromising quality or value for money.

Ensure that the voices and safety of residents, visitors and employees are central in our decision making process.

Set out and communicate clear responsibilities within our organisation and with our partners, ensuring everyone with a stake in the building during design, construction and occupation understands their role and has the time and resources they need to achieve and maintain building safety.
