Who is responsible for making sure that our leasehold property complies with the law in areas like fire safety and disabled access?

You are likely to share various responsibilities with the landlord, depending on the terms of the lease and who has the most control over different areas.

As an employer, you have a general duty to ensure that you are providing a healthy and safe working environment. As part of this you need to carry out a health and safety risk assessment. You are also responsible for fire safety.

Other responsibilities may include:

  • Making sure that electrical or gas installations and equipment are safe.
  • Managing asbestos, particularly if you are responsible for maintaining the premises.
  • Ensuring that any building works are carried out safely.
  • Making reasonable adjustments to accommodate disabled employees and customers.
