It is important to ensure buildings are safe for use following periods with low or no occupation.
Buildings may not be suitable for immediate occupation post Covid19 Closures.
Building owners, landlords and managers should ensure that appropriate checks are done.
M&E Maintenance is critical and should not be neglected.
Prior to buildings re-opening it is strongly recommended that building owners, landlords and managers ensure that their infrastructure and services are suitable for people to return to work, especially when there has been a long break.

- Electrical Circuits
- Fire Alarm and Emergency Lighting
