At the heart of good health and safety practice is an effective approach to management through the plan, do, check and act cycle. Where health and safety becomes an integral part of your business model many benefits are gained in addition to avoiding potential costly consequences of failure to do so.

The COSHH Regulations 2002 require employers to assess the risk to their employees, and to prevent or adequately control those risks. Sometimes, it’s easy to judge the amount of exposure to substances and decide what you can do about it.

All business premises must carry out a fire safety risk assessment and keep it up to date. This shares the same approach as health and safety risk assessments and can be carried out either as part of an overall risk assessment or as a separate exercise.

The  purpose  of  a  management  survey  is  to  locate,  as  far  as  reasonably practicable, any materials suspected of containing asbestos, and to assess their condition.  This usually involves sampling and analysis of materials to confirm the presence or absence of asbestos.

The First Principle can undertake on-site sampling for Legionella and TVC (drinking water) using an our independent UKAS Accredited Testing Laboratory. 


We will receive and interpret the laboratory test results and prepare recommendations for remedial action (including emergency reporting of elevated results).

Nursing homes, care homes and other healthcare facilities often accommodating residents who are considered be at increased risk of contracting Legionnaires’ disease. Therefore, it is vital that strict management systems are in place to eliminate or manage and control the risks associated with legionella bacteria.
