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’ve been on a first aid course at the uni of Bristol for the last 3 days with a trainer called Matt. I just wanted to email to say that he gave us some of the best first aid training I’ve ever experienced (and honestly, some of the best teaching I’ve ever received full stop) – everyone I spoke to during the course agreed with me that he was engaging, patient, personable and knowledgeable. The time passed so quickly because it was clear how much he cared and how much he wanted to give us his knowledge, not just because it was his job but because he, personally, wanted us to be well equipped to give people first aid in real life. Thank you for sending him! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to my colleagues, friends and family, both as a trainer and a first aider.”

Why do our customers choose us?
Our consultants carry out impartial safety audits, inspections and fire risk assessments on individual units, multiple occupancy units and other types of residential and commercial properties as required.
Acorn Health & Safety is a leading provider of health and safety training and consultancy in the South West. Our trainers and consultants come from a wide variety of professional backgrounds and have considerable, hands on practical experience which is reflected in our grounded, pragmatic approach.
Customers come from an equally diverse range of organisations and businesses but choose Acorn because we’ll keep you on the right side of the law, whilst recognising that health and safety needs to compliment your day to day business activities.
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.
For one-off assessments or, a tailored approach, we offer a wide range of consultancy services speak to our consultants to discuss your needs.
