Health & Safety
Block Management working for you…
Health and safety management is an important activity and the penalties for breaches of Health and Safety Law are costly. Health & Safety has become increasingly more important with many new regulations now a legal arbitrary requirement. This doesn’t necessarily mean a great expense; we work closely with all *parties and our advisors to achieve the most cost effective viable solutions.
Below are just some of the regulations to be considered:
- The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
- The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999
- Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations 2012
- Lifting Operations & Lifting Equipment Regulations
- Approved Code of Practice L8: Control of Legionella
These require specific periodic assessments; surveys; inspections; and testing to be carried out to the common shared areas and safety equipment to ensure that residents, visitors and contractors are safeguarded.
Whatever your personal opinion of today’s Health & Safety requirements, Bache & Hill takes a proactive approach to inspection and maintenance to protect your investment and safeguard your interests. In the eventuality that it may be needed, we retain the services of qualified specialists in Health and Safety; Fire Safety; Construction Safety; and asbestos management that provide sensible solutions to ensure these costs are kept to a minimum. Equally, if you have a preferred contractor with all the appropriate insurances, qualifications and experience we are happy to use your recommendations.
