It is a requirement of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 for an annual Health & Safety Risk Assessment be carried out at any block of flats or apartments where there is one or more employee, be them paid or unpaid.

You may argue that common areas are not “at work” but if any cleaner, gardener, managing agent or repair contractor enters your grounds or building, then a risk assessment must be made. (Common areas include gardens, grounds, plant rooms, meter cupboards and lift motor rooms.)

If there are no employees working at the block there is no requirement to record the risk assessment but it would be “best practice” to do so anyway as if there were to be an accident and you had no proof of a risk assessment being carried out, you are much more likely to be prosecuted and/or sued for negligence.

The Risk Assessment should be looked at annually to reassess the situation. has commission a three section Health & Safety Guide written specifically for Residents’ Management Companies and Residents Associations which includes:-

Health & Safety Guide – to help you identify the kind of hazards that contribute to the more common accidents and harm to health.Health & Safety Audit form – for you to complete and keep safe for proof that your Risk Assessment has been completed.
Contractor Health & Safety Appraisal Form – Health & Safety legislation places obligations on those responsible for selection and appointment of Contractors who will be engaged in work activities. This form needs to be completed each time a new contractor is appointed.
