  • It is a tenants responsibility to report any hazards you have seen that may cause a slip, trip or fall – don’t leave it for someone else to report.
  • Where lighting in car park is not working – please report the issue.
  • If there is a build-up of leaves, waste or debris or algae on foot paths you are using or in the carpark – please report it.
  • Witnesses to a slip, trip or fall should report what they have seen. 
  • Standing water such as wet footprints or small puddles forming within the building should be covered with a wet floor sign and noted in an official way.
  • If the path outside is frosty and slippery – please report it.
  • As with car parking lighting, if you cannot see a kerb due to the weather or darkness, please highlight the issue to the relevant people.

It is important tenants highlight near misses. They are, arguably, more important than actual accidents. Statistics show that for every accident there is at least 30 occasions where it almost happened and if only one of instances 30 people had reported the near miss. 

The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 states that all employees are responsible for:

  • Taking reasonable care of their own health and safety.
  • Co-operating with their employer and following instructions.
  • What putting others in danger
  • Report any hazards illnesses or injuries.


So please take care of yourselves and others and report near misses that have happened to you, or that you have witnessed and stop someone from getting seriously injured.
