Health & Safety services for Gem are also provided by our sister company Q1 Professional Services Limited (Q1).

Their team of qualified professionals carry out both Health & Safety and Fire Risk Assessments, which is a legal requirement where there are communal/common areas of flats/buildings of multiple occupancy.

The assessment charges are based upon the number of dwellings and comprises of detailed and fully documented reports in full compliance with the regulatory reform (Fire Safety) order 2005 and the RICS Code of practice – 3rd Edition.

The duty to comply with health & safety regulations falls on the landlord or person responsible for managing the building. That could be a managing agent, a Residents’ Management Company (RMC) or a Right to Manage Company (RTM).

Health & safety should never be ignored or dismissed simply because it costs money. The cost of failing to comply if there’s an accident or injury could be far greater.

Regular Risk assessments and Health & Safety checks are a must. Our team of specialists are available to provide this service so you can rest easy. If you would like to know more about our services, and how we work, please contact us.
