Health and Safety Law - General

Health & Safety – General

The following summarises the main health and safety regulations that apply to blocks of flats. There are many others.

  • The duty to comply with the regulations falls on the landlord or person responsible for management which could be an agent, a resident management company or a right to manage company.
  • Health & safety should never be ignored or dismissed because it requires additional expenditure as the cost of failing to comply if there is an accident or injury may be far greater than the cost to comply.
