The client looks after a large and prestigious block of flats in London, employing more than five members of staff.
The building had not been audited for health and safety or for fire safety and the new Manager realised that this was a legal requirement.
Westminster Compliance visited the premises and discussed all aspects of health and safety with the Manager. He had sole responsibility for maintaining a great number of records, ensuring the building was safe at all times and that all the staff were properly trained in health and safety legislation. He needed to be certain that he was able to keep on top of all of this on an ongoing basis.
We set up a Guaranteed Compliance System (GCS) which pulled together all the health and safety and fire safety strands into one place. An Account Manager was appointed and she trained all the staff in the new system and showed them what their own responsibilities are with regard to the legislation. She visits the premises three times a year. A full Fire Risk Assessment and Health and Safety inspection is undertaken annually and the whole system is fully audited. Our office ensures at least monthly contact is made to check all is OK. The staff have 24/7 contact rights in case of any emergency.
The building and its staff are now fully compliant with the law. The Management have peace of mind knowing this and, importantly, our GCS has simplified and streamlined the necessary record-keeping.
