Keeping Your Home Safe during the Current Coronavirus Pandemic
The Scottish Government has now moved Glasgow into Tier 3, which allows non-essential repair works inside people’s homes, such as painting, decorating or carrying out repairs is now permitted, subject to mitigations.
Electrical Periodic Inspections
Due to Covid-19, all electrical periodic inspections had been temporarily suspended. However, these works restarted in August 2020.
As the UK and Scottish Government have begun to ease restrictions and now permit such works to take place, our Cyclical Electrical Contractor has produced updated Risk and Method statements to mitigate and minimise the risks to our tenants / residents when carrying out the works in their homes.
Alarm Upgrade Works
As you may be aware, the Scottish Government has introduced new fire safety legislation that will extend the existing high standard of protection from smoke and fire, currently required in private rented housing, to all homes across Scotland.
This will require the Association to extend smoke detection into living rooms, hallways and provide heat detection in kitchens. This upgrade allows the alarms to be interlinked therefore provides added fire protection for you and your family. To date the Association have managed to upgrade over 860 properties.
As the UK and Scottish Government have begun to ease restrictions and now permit construction work to take place, all our Contractors who carry out alarm upgrade works have assessed the impact of the pandemic and produced updated Risk and Method statements to mitigate and minimise the risks to our tenants when carrying out the works in their property.
We would ask that you please allow our Contractors access to your home to carry out alarm upgrade work as it could save your life.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your patience and understanding during these difficult times.
