1. Inspect propertyRoom-by-room, checking elements, fixtures and fittings. Check common parts (e.g., stairs and shared rooms and amenities). Check outside the building, looking at the external elements, and the yards/gardens and paths. Record any deficiencies, disrepair or anything else that may give rise to a hazard

2. Deficiencies / HazardsCheck if any of the deficiencies and faults contribute to any one or more of the 29 hazards. Do deficiencies:(a) Increase the likelihood of a harmful occurrence?(b) Increase the severity of the harm?

3. Remedial Action/workDecide what needs to be done to remedy deficiencies and to reduce risks as low as reasonably practicable. Work out a timetable for having works done. Some action may be very urgent where an immediate risk to current occupiers is identified, others may be less urgent.

4. Keep Records Record the program of works. Record date when works finished

5. ReviewCheck that hazards have been removed/minimised.Re-inspect property. (How frequently this needs to be done depends on the age and type of property, and whether there has been any change of occupants. Some elements or facilities will need to be checked more frequently than others or when required by law or by an accreditation scheme.)
