The Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 (HSWA) came into force on 4 April 2016. Under these rules, landlords (and their property managers) owe a duty of care to ensure the health and safety of everyone involved with or affected by work undertaken on their property. The HSWA applies to both commercial and residential premises.
Our safety professionals understand the unique safety risks property/facility managers face, and we can help implement security measures to help ensure team safety. Property and facility managers face a number of risks and responsibilities. Facility managers also have the responsibility to provide a safe workplace for other employees as well. We can help train managers in areas involving worker whereabouts and safety, using security systems and functions, dealing with workplace violence, and developing emergency plans.
Safe maintenance work requires proper planning, a safe work area, appropriate equipment, careful work execution and diligent final checks. The complicated nature of maintenance operations often involves time pressure, working along with running processes, working at heights and in awkward positions, and using hazardous chemicals. These complicated situations have often resulted in high incident rates and health issues for these workers. Safety Resources can help by providing a detailed risk assessment to identify and eliminate risks, substitute dangerous substances, provide collective control measures and provide ideas about personal control methods. We can help identify maintenance roles and provided authorized training to specific personnel.
"My clients have tight deadlines and a very wide variety of specific safety needs. The team at Safety Resources has varied areas of deep expertise, and my clients are never disappointed with the services they receive. They’ve helped stainless steel welders worried about hexavalent chromium in the air, industrial painting operations concerned with OSHA respirator requirements and ergonomic assessments at either a simple desktop or an auto part assembly line. Safety Resources overdelivers every time."
