Health and SafetyProperty Management
Alexander Faulkner Partnership take the Health and Safety of individuals with the utmost seriousness. People who are living, working or visiting properties that we manage should do so in a safe environment.
Integral to our property management work are a variety of assessments that are carried out on the portfolio. Not all properties require all of the following checks but working closely with our Partners we ensure that appropriate Health and Safety controls are in place for each building.
- Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 – under which it is best practice to have a general risk assessment undertaken to all the communal areas.
- The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 – under this legislation a survey is required to be conducted on the non-domestic parts of the development – i.e. the internal communal areas (and does not extend to the residential apartments themselves).
- The Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations 2002 – under this legislation is survey is required to ascertain whether there are any Asbestos Containing Materials (ACMs) in the non-domestic parts of the development – i.e. the internal common areas (and does not extend to the apartments themselves).
- Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH) – this legislation provides the framework of actions designed to assess, prevent or control the risk from bacteria and take suitable precautions – for example – the annual testing of water supplies for legionella.
