Facilities Managers have various responsibilities and have to be fully aware of and comply with a wide range of rules & regulations. These challenges are magnified in multi-tenant, multi-site situations. Dealing with a company like Platinum Facilities Maintenance that can work in partnership with your business regarding key health and safety related services, consistently across the whole of Scotland is a major benefit. We also recognise the facilities manager’s need for clear & concise documentation.
As a building operator, you have a legal duty to carry out risk assessments and carry out yearly maintenance to control legionella. Certification of the inspections and work is required to confirm that you can prove you’ve done all that was required by current legislation. A failure to comply with the legislation will ultimately result in the HSE (Health & Safety Executive) pursuing a prosecution. Legionella outbreaks can lead to death in some cases and in turn there would be prosecutions for corporate manslaughter along with prosecutions of individual managers who fail to meet their responsibilities.

Fat, oil & grease residue can cause fire to spread rapidly through a building, posing a serious risk to the lives of employees/occupants. To minimise this risk, your kitchen’s extraction systems and ductwork must be cleaned every six to twelve months, efficiently and effectively. These cleans must be carried out in compliance with the leading industry guidance document TR/19 section 7. If the ductwork has not been cleaned correctly and as required by law, a corporate manslaughter charge can result if fire breaks out. In addition to safety issues, if the cleaning has not been carried out in accordance with Fire Safety regulations and Workplace (Health, Safety & Welfare) regulations, and a fire breaks out as a result, it could invalidate the buildings insurance and result in repudiated insurance claims.
