Faith and Community Sector
Priority 1 work with faith organisations from varied beliefs, and community groups who have many different aims, to provide fire risk assessments and property compliance audits on buildings under the control of the organisations. We can work with the organisations to enable them to meet with the legislative compliance relevant to their function and ensure any necessary remedial actions are completed. Our involvement with faith and community groups can be particularly important at times when work to the premises are required and the appointment of contractors is needed to complete structural repairs or undertake improvement works such as roof works, building extensions or major electrical works . Whilst working with the organisations we can work to provide them and their employees with competent health and safety advice, undertake process reviews and update their health and safety policies, arrangements in regard to health and safety and safety management systems. The results of work in this sector have already included the implementation of improved controls through employee education, guidance on ensuring continued compliance and improvements in the safe systems of work.
