How to inspect property for health and safety hazards during lockdown

Description of training

Understanding how to identify and deal with health and safety hazards is essential for property managers, having a poorly maintained property is one of the leading causes of complaint from tenants.

When visiting or inspecting property, it is an ideal time for housing officers to complete visual checks on the general condition of a property. Our online training will give you a general understanding of health and safety in the home and how to prioritise hazards.

Learning Outcomes

•    Understand the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS) and how local authorities’ enforcement officers identify hazards
•    Understand how to apply this in practice as a front-line housing professional by learning about the different hazards and how to prioritise them
•    Learn through practical examples of real case scenarios and put yourself in the shoes of the local authority enforcement officers

Who should attend?

This course is perfect for front line housing professionals or anyone looking to gain an understanding of health and safety in properties.

Benefits of attending

Here at CIH, we want to provide everyone involved in housing with the skills and knowledge needed to cope in the current pandemic.

Our online training has been developed by expert professionals on key topics that we know you need to be able to adapt to the changing environment.
