A health and safety risk assessment is a precaution that careful and conscientious property managers take to protect themselves and the residents from hazards. Everyone can expect to take a certain amount of personable responsibility for their safety, but when you live in a communal block of flats /apartments your complete safety can be outside your control. Landlords, Management Company Directors, Freeholders and Property Managing Agents can be held liable for any injuries residents or visitors receive in communal areas of the property. A risk assessment is the first step towards protecting both parties.
A risk assessment is recommended for any property with communal areas. If you own or manage any property where there are communal areas, a hazard assessment is strongly encouraged.
If you see a health and safety risk in a communal area of your property, ask the person responsible for managing your property for a risk assessment and get the problem fixed.
