Home Safety

More accidents happen in the home than in the workplace, it is the job of the Housing Standards and Care and Repair Officers to ensure people live in healthy and safe homes.  When we visit your home, for whatever reason, we will take a holistic approach to your home ensuring that your property is free from hazards that could cause harm to you or a visitor.

We are also concerned about fire safety and we will ensure that you have sufficient smoke alarms fitted. The Council’s Handyman service can assist with this providing you are eligible. We have attached some important advice regarding fire safety in the home.
