Safety in your home

Keeping you safe in your home is a top priority for us. We want to help you prevent fires and other safety issues in your home, and protect the lives of you and your loved ones.  

As well as the fire safety measures and checks that we’re responsible for, there’s a lot you can do to #GetFireSmart so check out our advice and fire safety videos - including extra information on safety in our taller buildings and in communal areas. 

We also explain more about the importance of gas and electrical safety checks as well as asbestos and water safety (legionella). 

You can find out more about all these safety topics using the links below.  

As some responsibilities and safety services also vary depending on whether you’re a tenant or a shared owner/leaseholder, some information is also split out separately for different customers.
