Health & Safety Inspections
As a Landlord, you have a legal duty to your tenants to ensure the property they live in is safe and free from health hazards.
“I just wanted to say a big ‘Thank you’ for my training. I had an incident last night with my son, he was struggling to breathe due to aggressively being sick. If it wasn’t for the skills your trainer taught me, I wouldn’t have known what to do! He was rushed to the children’s hospital by ambulance, and is OK now and in safe hands, but it just made me think I only went on the course a few weeks before so I’m glad it helped me. I had him in the perfect position where he wasn’t choking on his own sick and I would have never known that if you hadn’t taught me so a very big Thank you!!”

How do we support Landlords with health and safety inspections?
We will assess any hazards evident at the time of inspection/assessment and make recommendations, if required, based on this.
As part of the inspection we’ll examine a number of records/documents such as servicing, maintenance and electrical safety records. Alternatively, if these aren’t available we ask clients to review and sign a declaration to this affect.
What should you expect from Acorn Health & Safety?
We will provide written evidence of inspection and/or fire risk assessment and a report of any recommendations required for the property. In addition to satisfying the requirements of a number of legal duties this also provides the type of evidence increasingly requested by insurers and Landlord accreditation schemes.
We will assign you a dedicated and competent health and safety professional who will gain an understanding of your needs and be on hand to provide any help, advice or comment you need.
Any documentation produced will either be uploaded to our cloud based storage system provided electronically, or as a hard copy in the required format. Following any piece of consultancy work we are available by phone or on e-mail, so you can contact us easily, if you need our assistance or further advice.
Whatever your health and safety needs are, our ‘Hassle Free’ retained consultancy service is here to help.
