The health and safety of residents and staff in the buildings that we manage is our highest priority. We therefore ensure that regular fire risk assessments and resultant actions are carried out for each of our properties.
Our staff are trained to undertake proactive and reactive fire safety management, including building inspections, routine fire alarm testing, evacuations and inductions for residents. In addition, we conduct routine inspections on all plant and equipment including electrical and gas systems using accredited personal and third parties.
All of our fire safety systems are robustly tested in line with British Standards guidelines by competent staff and accredited third parties to ensure that they are operational at all times. Our trained staff are alerted immediately by fire safety systems to undertake investigation at the point of activation and where necessary co-ordinate evacuation. In addition, these safety systems are connected to an Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) that is manned 24/7 and 365 days of the year.
We can confirm that all the buildings we manage are fully compliant with health and safety standards under the current building regulations. We would also like to provide reassurance that any external cladding used in the construction of buildings we manage is of a non-combustible metal material. Cladding panels comply with the most up to date safety guidance to be issued and are NOT ‘ACM cladding’ which has a sandwich of insulation between two aluminium panels.
