Providing a building that is safe and secure should be a core staple of any housing provider. It may be an asset to you, but to the person or family living in it, it’s their home. A place offering more than just bricks and mortar, but family security, a peaceful haven and hopefully something that will have wider benefits on their lifestyle and health too. There is a lot of research out there to show that a house is more than just a building.
Ensuring the safety of these buildings is paramount. The regulation around asset management and safety is ever-changing and can be hard to keep up with everything new. Tragedies such as Grenfell Tower and the case of two-year old Awaab Ishak, who died from damp and mould exposure, are examples of why we should be doing everything we can to ensure the safety of our residents.
