Protector Insurance - Risk Management Guidance

Risk Management Guidance

There has rightly been significant attention and focus on the issues relating to combustible cladding
from Government and others in the form of initiatives and changes to building regulations following Grenfell. The work to remove combustible materials and replace them with appropriate non-combustible alternative materials is underway but progress has so far been slow, and the Building Safety Management Programme reported 45 buildings in England identified with ACM cladding systems had still to begin remediation works at the end of 2020

A necessary focus on fire safety has also resulted in a number of Government Advice Notes which includes stricter fire safety measures for balconies within multi-storey, multi-occupied buildings.

Balconies are now commonplace in developments and their functionality as part of modern day living has been invaluable for many during periods of national lockdown with strict restrictions on socialising and being outdoors in public. Whilst balconies will be subject to more regular use when warmer weather temperatures allow, associated risks should be taken into consideration all year round.
