The Housing Health & Safety Rating System (HHSRS) is a Government published risk based evaluation tool. It is designed to assist housing associations and local authorities in identifying potential health and safety hazards from deficiencies in their residential properties, as well as offering protection against them.
All social landlords are expected to adhere to the HHSRS when carrying out inspections their housing stock. As such it is fundamentally important that their staff are familiar with the HHSRS and are up to date with their knowledge of it.
This one day introduction can help managers with team members understand the hazards of properties that could fail HHSRS and identify the faults quickly whilst saving time and money waiting on other assessments.

It is aimed at non-technical housing staff and housing management teams, environmental managers and contracted caretakers.
