Did You Miss Our Webinar On Culture And Competence In The Built Environment?

Published
On 16 April 2021, we hosted a webinar that looked at culture and competence in the built environment. We discussed a variety of different topics including how to create culture change, how to instil confidence in a functioning competence system, what is needed to ensure effective competency and compliance, and more.  Our speakers included Vicki Reynolds, Chief Technology Officer, i3PT Certification, Debbie Carlton, Director, Dynamic Knowledge, Dr Hywel Davies, Technical Director, CIBSE, Gill Kernick, Master Consultant, and Gus Carroll, CEO and Co-Founder, Empirisys Ltd. 

The aim of our webinar was to provide pragmatic advice to help leaders and practitioners put key measures into effect successfully. You can watch the webinar on demand for free here: Raising standards, saving lives – culture and competence in the built environment.

During the webinar there were many questions raised by the audience that kept the webinar informative and engaging. Since the Q&A session was only for 15 minutes, we were not able to answer all the questions raised. As such, the panel have compiled all the unanswered questions and made responses. You can read the responses to the questions here: Responses to your questions on culture and competence in the built environment.

Some of the questions include:
•    Could there be scope for Independent Safety Auditors to be required for building projects to assist project safety assurance?
•    Where is the legislation to impart individual responsibility rather than hoping for the best for large scale cultural change?
•    Regulations are too complex and inter-weaved and cross over. How can this be improved?
