Office refurbishment checklist

Office refurbishment checklist

As it’s easy to underestimate the health and safety hazards involved in office refurbishment, you should use a checklist to manage the main hazards such as noise and excessive dust.

Office refurbishment hazards

Even relatively minor work can cause disruption to the fire escapes, lead to excessive noise and fumes etc. If left unplanned, such work could rapidly cause a deterioration in the health and safety standards of the premises, putting employees and contractors at risk. Our Office Refurbishment Checklist will help you to anticipate the common problems which arise during this type of work and allow you to plan ahead.

Legal requirements

In addition to the simple avoidance of hazards, proper planning also ensures that the organisation complies with the law. The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM) include detailed responsibilities for clients of construction work. In addition, there are specific requirements within the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 including the need to keep fire safety risk assessments up to date and risk control arrangements in good order. Using the checklist will help to ensure that these legal responsibilities are met.
