Congratulations to our Maintenance Manager and Maintenance & Repairs Co-ordinator on attaining certified Competency as Housing Health and Safety Practioners!
Russell and Calum recently completed a HHSRS (Housing Health and Safety Rating System) course, receiving a certificate of Competence in applying the Housing Health and Safety Rating System.
The Housing Health and Safety Rating System is a risk-based evaluation tool to help local authorities identify and protect against potential risks and hazards to health and safety from any deficiencies identified in properties. It was introduced under the Housing Act 2004 and applies to residential properties in England and Wales. This assessment method focuses on the hazards that are present in housing. Tackling these hazards will ensure properties are healthier and safer to live in, therefore it is vital for our maintenance team to competently identify and manage any issues effectively.
Well done guys!
