Specialist Health & Safety services for care homes
The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 makes business owners, and those responsible for business premises, ultimately responsible for conducting a fire risk assessment and making safe their places of work. You need to appoint a ‘competent person’ to help if you don’t have the expertise or time to do the fire risk assessment yourself. Our consultants are qualified and experienced at conducting fire risk assessments across a variety of industries.
Legionella causes Legionnaires’ Disease, a potentially fatal form of pneumonia. Failure to properly manage your water systems may exposure your staff or customers to this risk.
As an employer or person in control of premises you need to assess, prevent and control any risks of exposure to legionella arising from your water systems. Compliant to the L8 approved code of practice, we will identify and assess the source of any risk of legionella and produce a practical action plan to prevent, minimise and control the risk.
The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012 require employers to assess and manage the risk of exposure to asbestos. In reality this means ensuring you know firstly if your building contains any asbestos and secondly managing potential exposure. Failure to adequately manage the risks associated with asbestos often leads to heavy prosecution fines.
If you are acquiring a new home we recommend you consider all the above and also comply to the requirements of Refurbishment and Renovation F10 notification.
