Consultation

Why are we asking for customer views?

The safety of our customers is our highest priority and we are committed to being transparent. As part of this we would like to publish our Fire Risk Assessments and any other safety information that our customers may find useful.

We are currently consulting a sample of our customers to find out about the types of safety information you would find useful to receive and how.

What safety checks do we carry out in our buildings?

Fire Risk Assessments

As a social landlord, we carry out a number of safety checks. This includes Fire Risk Assessments (FRAs) for any building that has a communal area. The purpose of a Fire Risk Assessment is to help us understand what the potential fire risks may be and to ensure that we take the necessary actions to keep our buildings safe.

An independent specialist carries out the inspections for us. They then produce a report (the FRA) with all the information they have gathered and a number of recommendations for action. We then put in place a plan to carry out these actions.

Other safety checks we carry out

Different types of buildings require different safety checks. Some of these checks include:

  • electrical testing
  • emergency lighting
  • lift servicing
  • fire alarms
  • lightening conductors
  • checks for asbestos.
