Building Compliance Services
Building compliance is often seen as a sore subject that hinders business, but is crucial to its success. In an organisation, all the mechanical and electrical systems and equipment are covered by the legislation. The working environments should meet the Health and Safety standards to keep their employees safeguarded from risks. Regular maintenance of the workplace plays an important role in keeping up with this standard. Navigating the path to compliance by keeping up to date with the constantly evolving legislation requires proactive planning and organization. It can be challenging and overwhelming for an organisation trying to keep up with the legislation.

Air and Ventilation Compliance Inspections
It is a legal obligation of an organisation to look into the occupational health and safety hazards of its employees. Indoor air pollution is a primary factor which contributes to risks posed in the workplace. An adequately maintained ventilation will circulate and substitute fresh air for stale air. A good amount of fresh air and its cleanliness makes for a comfortable workplace. Workplaces are required to be at a minimum temperature of 16°C in general working conditions and 13°C in situations where work performed is laborious.
Underperforming and less frequently serviced heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems pose several health and safety risks. Failure to deliver suitable working conditions is a serious breach of the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD).
Acufire UK can work with your current Facility Manager (FM) to ensure all legal responsibilities are complied with. Depending on your system's output, you may also need a regular TM44 inspection. We can advise you on this and other requirements your system may have.

Health and safety and your responsibilities
The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 places a legal obligation on the employers to ensure a safe and healthy workplace for their employees as well as others on their premises. All organisations, whether big or small, have the responsibility to identify any workplace hazards and take measures to reduce the risk or eliminate it. Statutory Compliance is a requirement by the law and the responsibility to be compliant with the law lies with a nominated person or team within the organisation.
