A Safety Report is also called an OHS Report or Occupational Health and Safety Report & will tell you about anything unsafe or potentially hazardous you should know about when engaging contractors to work on your building.
All the information is published in an easily understood Report setting out the issue, level of risk and what you need to do. The more complex the building, the more information you will need.
Fire safety requirements mean some buildings need occupant warning systems, fire rated entry doors, proper signage and exit lighting. Larger buildings need hose reels, hydrants and extinguishers and even sprinklers systems.
Building users expect your building to be safe. For instance:
- Do you have thermostatic mixing valve which limits the hot water temperature to prevent scalds?
- Are there any uneven areas of concrete or paving which someone could trip on?
- Are there other unacceptable trip or slip hazards such as half steps or slippery tiles?
- Are smoke detectors installed?
We will alert you to unacceptable fall risk and also tell you where people may hit their head on anything under 2m from ground level.
Tyrrells believes every building needs safety devices to make maintenance safe. These include fall arrest anchors in roofs and walls where contractors can connect ladders, safety lines or harnesses.
If you are periodically checking the main safety issues in your property, refer to our Safety Check diagram.
