West Whitlawburn Housing Co-operative has recently conducted a comprehensive fire risk assessment, using specialist contractors, of our 6 multi storey flat blocks and the results have been positive in relation to the specialist contractors findings. A number of relatively minor action points were identified and those actions have now been completed satisfactorily.
In addition to this comprehensive assessment and action Scottish Fire and Rescue conduct a quarterly inspection of our blocks and any areas identified as requiring action either from a maintenance or housing management perspective are actioned, and recorded as actioned, immediately.
Very recently all West Whitlawburn Housing Co-operative staff have undergone fire safety training and all Concierge staff have been refreshed on procedures in relation to what must be done in the event of a fire and all Concierge staff have confirmed their understanding of procedures.
The most recent WWHC newsletter contained a full page article on fire safety information for tenants and new tenant information packs also contain fire safety information and advice.
