Building Safety Cases
As a result of the Building Safety Bill, all in scope high-rise residential buildings that are at least 18 metres in height or at least 7 storeys, will have to develop and maintain a safety case and submit a Safety Case Report to the Building Safety Regulator. In this session, Neil Yeomans – Head of Customer Safety and Tom Franklin – Strategic Building Safety Lead from Orbit Group, will detail how Orbit is tackling the challenge.
14.00 – 16.00
A blueprint for successful system implementation for compliance professionals
So you’ve made the important decision to implement a compliance data management system. You attempt to implement it – but it’s just too big. There is project creep, you feel like you have opened a can of worms. It’s frustrating and painful and the project grinds to a halt. Whether this sounds familiar or not – join this highly practical session to understand how to avoid the common pitfalls experienced during system implementation. You will hear about others’ experiences and leave with a handy template to help you navigate this difficult topic. Note this session will be delivered from a Compliance Teams perspective and not an IT perspective. It will be delivered by Matt Sharp, CORGI Technical Services Non-Executive Director.
10.00 - 11.30
How Leaders can Create Psychological Safety to Support Health & Safety Performance
There is a clear link between psychological and physical safety – this session will explore how leaders and safety professionals can nurture a workplace culture where people feel comfortable speaking up and raising safety-related concerns. It will explore the reasons why people speak up or stay silent, and skills and attributes leaders can use to further build a psychologically safe culture. This session will be delivered by Mark Britton, Partner at JMJ – a cultural transformation organisation.
14.00 - 15.30
Access, Access, Access
How have your access rates been over the last year? What has made a difference, or indeed what has hindered? Let’s get together to try and continually improve this difficult but critically important area.
Members’ Day – Host your own session
This is your week and your platform to talk about safety and compliance challenges. It’s your opportunity to host your own National Social Housing Safety & Compliance Week session for your organisation, akin to a MacMillan Coffee Morning! Grab a meeting room, agree your theme and how you will run it e.g. presentation followed by a Q&A, a panel discussion, a case study, or maybe a drop-in session. Get your colleagues involved, your board involved and your residents involved! Don’t forget coffee and cakes!
We have created a PowerPoint template for you and a handy ‘How To Guide’ – a step by step guide to organising this session, including potential topics. But this is your session, do what will benefit your organisation and your residents.
