    Property Risk - Part 2.

    In this episode, host Mark Reggers and guest David Hauser, Team Manager in Property Risk at Greencap resume where they left off and continue their discussion on the subject matter of Property Risk.

    Property risk relates to a broader area than just the land and buildings in question. It covers risks associated with the asset, the infrastructure and people. It looks at how a property is managed to minimise hazard exposure to individuals, whether they be occupants or visitors, and how the efficiency and effectiveness of the property can be improved.

    In this episode, part 2 of 2, Mark & David discuss the following:

    • Picking up where we left off from in the last episode, what are some other areas of concern when it comes to property risk?
    • Are there systems that can help property owner and managers keep on top of all these areas and manage them on an ongoing basis to maintain compliance?
    • What takeaway points would you want to leave with our listeners?
    • Where can listeners get further information about property risk and the areas discussed?
    • How can our listeners get in contact with yourself and Greencap?

    There are many types of risks relating to property covering an extensive area that includes things like fire and emergency management, working at heights, falls, confined spaces, chemicals, traffic management and plant, the list is exhaustive. Once a risk has been identified and controls implemented, regular reviews are needed to ensure the danger has not changed, or that other hazards are not introduced from the measures utilised. Properties are constantly changing, people are renovating, refurbishing, installing new plant, upgrading and so on, it is critical to note that these bring in additional hazards that need to be identified and controlled, the risks never stop. Tune in as we explore property risk and why it is such a significant area of concern to all the stakeholders involved.
