HHSRS - ABBE certificate in Housing Health & Safety Rating Systems

We are rightly proud of our certificated HHSRS course (which we designed and which is exclusive to Upkeep) and have delivered it for several years. We’ve recently given it a health check ahead of the forthcoming changes from government and are updating our content & our methods of assessment, and will get the refreshed course reaccredited. We will relaunch as soon as possible to give students and their organisations the very best experience in this important subject.

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. 


The HHSRS qualification that Upkeep offer is accredited by ABBE (Award Body of the Built Environment). The course takes place over two days and at the end of it you will have a qualification that is recognised nationally. This confirms that you have demonstrated that you are competent in carrying out the assessment of housing stock using the HHSRS. 


Who should attend

Our course is for anyone who assesses properties using the HHSRS. It is ideal for housing officers or managers, estate managers, environmental health officers or private building managers. It is also for managers who need to supervise staff who are assessing properties.
