Our Asset Management team helps us to know what needs to be replaced and when. We work hard to meet the industry standards for health & safety, and we look to continually improve the services we provide by monitoring key performance indicators.
Our ‘Planned’ maintenance team is responsible for things such as:
- Statutory electrical testing inspections
- Safety inspections including gas appliances and smoke alarms
Electrical Safety Inspections
We are required by law, to carry out various electrical safety inspections which include the following:
- Periodic electrical inspections of multiple occupancy buildings
- Fire detection systems
- Emergency lighting testing and inspection
- Fire fighting equipment
- Lift inspections
- Portable appliance testing
These checks mainly relate to sheltered complexes and flat units. All of our residents affected would be notified in writing prior to these checks being carried out.
Please help us to make your homes a safe place to live for you and your family, and allow us to carry out the necessary annual inspections.
Gas Appliance and Smoke Alarm Safety Inspections
We must carry out annual safety inspections of all gas appliances that are owned by us. These inspections ensure that all appliances we are responsible for are safe to use, fit for purpose and working efficiently.
We do work very hard to make sure that we gain access to each and every one of our homes, to ensure the safety of our tenants. There may be occasions when we are unable to achieve this, which could potentially result in unsafe gas appliances being used. Whilst we strive to keep the inconvenience due to any inspection works to a minimum, it is vital that you allow us access to your home to carry out these inspections. If we are not able to gain access after two attempts, we may need to seek legal intervention to avoid the possibility of any serious implications following the use of an unsafe gas appliance.
During this essential annual inspection, we also collect information on the expected life cycle of the appliance and the actual current condition of the appliance. The safety inspection tests the gas appliances and smoke detectors in your home to make sure that they are in good working order.
We will always send you a letter to confirm an appointment for your gas safety check.
Improvements and safety in your home
