Disability access audits

Advice and solutions

Our DDA audits provide essential advice to premise managers on the degree of building compliance with the DDA (Disability Discrimination Act 1995). The reports produced also offer practical solutions where remedial action is required. Where necessary, we can arrange for the removal or alteration of any structure in order to ensure full compliance with the Act.

Noise & vibration assessments

Assessing the risk

Employers have a statutory requirement to assess and control physical hazards such as noise and vibration. The assessment of these can be complex, however you can be assured that our qualified and experienced assessors will provide detailed and accurate assessments as well as offering practical risk control solutions.

Fire risk assessments

A complete overview

Fire safety law, codes of practice and British Standards can be difficult to interpret, however we can help by carrying out the assessment on your behalf. The report will include an assessment of risks and a table of management actions to assist in controlling fire risks and demonstrating legal compliance.

Occupational hygiene assessments

Analysing the workplace

The range of substances used in the workplace as well as those used in the construction of premises is vast. Our occupational hygienists are able to provide assessment and risk control plans for a range of materials that may be used or encountered in buildings including Pb (lead), chemicals, dusts, mists or fume and biological agents such as anthrax spores in horse hair used in the construction of old buildings. In the modern workplace there is the potential for people to suffer from the range of minor ill-health conditions known as Sick Building Syndrome (SBS). This is becoming more and more common and often requires specialist assistance to identify the causes and solutions to the problem.
