Statutory Compliance

The Statutory Compliance Audit

The elements of this Statutory Compliance Audit carry a mandatory requirement in that Duty Holders have a legal obligation to ensure that their premises are compliant. This audit identifies the extent to which the facilities comply with these statutory regulations.

This important audit identifies whether staff and visitors (including people with disabilities) are able to operate within a building without detriment to their well being and confirms that the building environment does not compromise the quality of service that staff are able to provide.

It lists not only recommendations for improvement where items are mandatory but will suggest improvements for the general safety and welfare of building users.

These regulations apply to a wide range of workplaces, not only factories, shops and offices but also schools, hospitals, hotels and places of entertainment.
