The latest Guide to Managing Safety-Critical Elements in Building Construction, jointly initiated by the CIOB and RIBA, has been produced with the intention of increasing awareness across all sections of the industry of the need to bring a rigorous and structured approach to the design, construction and inspection of elements identified as potentially ‘safety-critical’. Elements ‘such as Fire Doors’ that, if omitted or installed incorrectly, could cause a serious injury or loss of life, to those in and around the building.

There are some really good observations and guidance throughout this report, particularly in Section 9; ‘Evidence Demonstrating Compliant Construction’ around the digital recording and cataloguing of ‘critical information’ and safety compliance sign-off and hand-over, which is exactly what FireDNA does in delivering the ‘Golden Thread’.
