The Building Safety Bill has now completed all the parliamentary stages in both Houses to become an Act of Parliament – while the measures included within the doorstopper of a document (262 pages) are likely to take up to 18 months to introduce according to the Government, the regulations will impose a requirement on principal designers, principal contractors and anyone carrying out any design or building work to be competent for their roles.

FIS is committed to supporting its members with compliance and ensuring the Bill supports better safety and a more collaborative approach to procurement. Related to this, we cover on P8 the launch the FIS Competency Passport. This will allow individuals to manage achievement in any form (education, training, qualifi cation and experience) by storing digital records in one secure place.

We also delve into the Bounce Back project which helps support the training and employment of people in and leaving prison; take a look at the breat-taking projects that were crowned winners at this year’s FIS Contractors Awards and creating neurodiverse workplaces, where we go beyond meeting statutory regulations.
