North Somerset
Enterprise Agency

Priority 1 works with NSEA assisting them in maintaining safe working environments for both staff and clients. We do this through fire risk assessment and health and safety premises auditing. This helps to ensure all compliance aspects of the premises are adhered to and all maintenance needs are met.



Priority 1 works with the Facilities and Estates departments at the IDH Group, assisting them in the compliance of their sub-let and mothballed premises. This work includes property inspections, condition reporting, contractor appointment and compliance monitoring.



Working with the support and guidance of the DaiKar consultancy team we have worked to complete fire risk assessments at large and complex premises for national and international corporate client organisations. We have supported DaiKar in offering additional services within their wide ranging and successful facilities management consultancy.


Grammar School

Priority 1 staff have been working with Bristol Grammar School for a number of years providing independent health and safety advice. We provide a service to the school which includes audits of both the teaching departments and the support services such as facilities and catering. We have been able to assist the school with the training of support services staff in subjects such as fire safety, asbestos awareness and risk assessment. Working closely with the Facilities department and the management team at the school we have completed fire risk assessments of all the buildings and produced action plans which they are using to improve fire safety across the site.


Property Management

Priority 1 staff have worked in close partnership with BNS Management Services for a number of years providing a wide range of services. This includes the vetting of contractors through the use of a pre-qualifying proceedure, insurance scrutiny and company checks, provision of competent health and safety advice to both the organisation and its clients. We carry out fire risk assessments and undertake regular reviews of the assessments to make note of any changes or additions which may alter the assessed level of risk. We also carry out annual risk assessments which aim to identify aspects of the property, or activities which present hazards to both residents and visitors. We arrange for surveys by highly qualified organisations, to understand the risks from the presence of asbestos containing materials and make assessments of the likely risks from legionella bacteria being present in water systems. We work with the management team to arrange for statutory inspection and testing on safety critical aspects of the properties. This includes lightning protection systems, dry risers and fire extinguishers, along with any installed detection and warning systems, and carrying out prompt investigation into incidents and accidents including identifying and ensuing the implementation of any necessary remedial actions.
