  • HSE has published step-by-step guidance on how Principal Accountable Person's and those supporting them, should to approach the Resident Engagement Strategy. A range of case studies is also available to help others gain insight on good practice in resident engagement. 

    The guidance document sets out key considerations and principles to help the Building Safety Regulator
    (BSR), Principal Accountable Persons (PAPs) and Accountable Person (APs) engage effectively
    with residents.
    It is based on research with a wide cross-section of residents.

    • Resident Engagement
  • A new report published by the HSE brings together the findings on residents’ views, attitudes and behaviours relating to high-rise building safety from two research studies.

    These studies were undertaken to ensure that residents’ perspectives are central to
    the development of the new Building Safety Regulator (BSR), and aimed to
    ensure that residents’ needs and views were considered by providing data directly from
    residents; to use the findings to optimise policy, services and communications to
    successfully interact with residents.

    They also aimed to provide baseline data by delivering measures across a range of relevant topics such as feeling of safety, knowledge and understanding of building safety and satisfaction.

    BSR is also  working to reflect residents’ perspectives in its development in a variety of ways, including a Statutory Residents Panel; engagement with representative bodies of the industry; and a programme of digital user research. Further research projects into the specific needs of residents with disabilities and residents with low proficiency in English language have also been conducted.
