Raglan Housing is a large housing association working in over 100 local authority areas, with 11,000 homes and provides an example of a client that we have assisted and demonstrates well our approach to Risk Compliance.
In order to comply with the requirements of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005, Raglan Housing needed to carry out Fire Risk Assessments (FRAs) for the communal areas of their properties. It was understood that fire risk assessments were completed for all communal areas by a number of different people, with varying skill levels; resulting in a Fire Risk Register (FRR) produced from the FRA reports listing all actions identified as being ‘required’. Some of the works had been completed, but there was concern that different assessors had given the same work items different priorities.
Raglan Housing were keen to carry out works to conform with the legislation and at the same time make their residencies safer environments. In response, FRMS reviewed the FRR, identifying where works had been completed; audit and review a percentage of FRA reports on site. The results for Raglan of the Frankham RMS involvement on this contract were quality assured reviews of previous risk assessments, identification of significant anomalies, prioritisation of findings to accord with policy, fresh risk assessments and an efficient service, delivered to budget and time via a seconded approach.
