The Management of Health and Safety Regulations 1999 require a health and safety risk assessment to be conducted on a regular basis in order to ensure that the health and safety of residents and visitors alike is properly managed and any hazards that could cause harm to anyone have been identified and a risk reduction programme implemented. Once again, for this to be deemed suitable and sufficient, this should be conducted by a competent person.
Our assessors are Graduates with the Institute of Fire Engineers and hold Nebosh qualifications in Health and safety Management, which define them as a Competent Person under the terms of both pieces of legislation.
During the site survey, our assessor will conduct a thorough visual inspection of all communal areas, both internal and external and will ask to see a proportion of the apartment entrance doors in order to assess suitability and compliance.
A comprehensive report will then be drawn up, which identifies the hazards, along with the severity of each hazard and suggests a risk reduction programme in the form of an action plan. A review date will also be set.
Our assessors are friendly and approachable and we would be delighted to assist you.
