Health & Safety

Fire Prevention We read that the new £24 million school in Dalbeattie opened in October 2017, with intumescent strips either loose or missing, incomplete fire stopping around heating pipes and above ceilings. Bit too much to add to a snagging list!!


Fire Prevention We read a recent report that suggests at least 340 high-rise residential towers and  1338 high-risk buildings such as schools, hospitals and care homes in the UK that have not been identified by the government which have combustible materials on their façades. Lot more work to do it seems?


Fire Legislation Update The Use of combustible materials on high rises will be banned as of 21 December. The government will 'give support' to local authorities to remove and replace unsafe alluminium composite material (ACM) cladding, including from private residential buildings. The 2010 Building Regulation will be amended.


Food Safety We do wish you all a fab safe and Happy Christmas and an Amazing 2019. For a safe Christmas lunch or dinner with your family please follow the guidelines form the Food Standards Agency. We are sure you all know the rules… just in case you need reminding…. Ho! Ho! Ho! ….
