Essentially, regulatory compliance is a business’s adherence to laws and regulations. These regulations ensure that all items within a company’s facility are up to British Standards, meaning that they are deemed safe for you, your staff and your customers.
Making sure that your facility reaches these standards requires regular compliance maintenance to locate any problems that could breach legislation, and then fixing them quickly.
Effective regulatory compliance can range from Fire Risk Assessments to gas safety inspections and certification, and even adhering to established procedures for identifying and removing asbestos.
Failure to comply with health and safety legislation not only endangers your employees and clients, but can result in large fines, and in some cases, court proceedings.
Depending on your lease terms, some responsibilities will sit with the landlord, others will sit with the tenant, and some will effectively be the responsibility of both parties.
When in doubt – check your lease, ensure you have a paper trail and always err on the side of caution.
