What you need to know
If you are in control of premises where work is carried out, you have specific obligations and duties to ensure that hazards which could cause harm are identified. The best way to do this is with a thorough safety audit. These are required of all residential and domestic premises. Safety audits help minimize the liability risk to the owners and managers from injuries occurring on common property. They can also assist in reducing claims which, in turn, impact insurance premiums and coverage. Make sure you know exactly where you stand, and what the risks are — contact QBM

Ongoing assistance from QBM
The recommended control methods then need to be assessed on a regular basis, with a view to maintaining the high level of care implemented after the initial audit. QBM can play a vital role here too, returning to the property to re-inspect. QBM can also assist the property owners’ and managers’ in deciding on control measures to remove, prevent, or minimise potential risks that may arise in the future.
