A Hanover estate and gardens

Health & safety

We're committed to maintaining a safe and secure home and estate environment.

As well as our ongoing planned maintenance and improvement programme, we undertake a number of regular visits to monitor and service some critical health and safety systems. This includes:

  • Fire safety – all estates have a regular fire risk assessment as well as checks and servicing of fire alarms, extinguishers and any fixed electrical systems
  • Landlords gas safety checks and boiler servicing are carried out annually
  • Water systems are regularly checked by Hanover teams and specialist contractors
  • Any estates where asbestos has been used in construction have undergone in-depth surveys with this information readily available to staff, residents, and contractors

We've produced two booklets - one for tenants and one for homeowners - about the importance of health and safety in the home. The booklets contain advice about potential dangers, such as fire, gas and water. The booklet has been delivered to our estates via estate managers and area managers.

This information has been Crystal Marked by the Plain English Campaign for its clarity and ease of use.

The full booklets and each section within them are available as separate PDFs to view and/or download below.
