Health and safety legislation surrounding residential properties grows in complexity all the time and is an increasingly important part of managing a building.
The communal areas of your development are deemed to be “places of work” and, as such, various pieces of legislation are in place to ensure the safety of residents, visitors and contractors.
The key Acts which apply to the communal areas of residential developments include the following:
The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999
The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2006
We can provide professional inspections, or arrange with other specialists to provide assessments. The reports are in an “easy to follow” format, identifying the location of any risks, together with the associated risk level, and will recommend and prioritise the appropriate remedial works.
The penalties for non-compliance can be severe. Our clients can speak to us and a member of the Health & Safety team if they need any advice or have any queries. Put your property and yourself in safe hands with K&M.
