Keeping you safe in your home is a top priority for us and we’re committed to meeting all our legal responsibilities. This includes providing smoke alarms as well as checking and servicing gas, oil and solid fuel appliances in annual safety checks and completing regular inspections of electrical systems. In our blocks of flats and similar sites, we make sure that fire risk assessments (FRAs) are up-to-date, there are appropriate smoke detectors and fire alarms, fire doors and other fire safety measures.
Last year we visited 36,000 homes to make sure all of those with gas have a valid gas safety record. We also completed nearly 600 Fire Risk Assessments and closed more than 1,700 fire safety actions or checks. If you’re a resident in a flat or similar accommodation you can ask us to send you a copy of the latest Fire Risk Assessment for your building. If you live in one of our taller buildings (six storeys or more), we’ve also published some summary safety information about these blocks.
You can also find more information and advice online about our #GetFireSmart campaign or our work around gas safety, asbestos and the safety of the water supply in your home.
When it comes to your personal safety, we work closely with the police and other agencies on issues like domestic abuse, hoarding and anti-social behaviour so please get in touch if you need advice or support. We also have an anti-slavery statement.
