Duty of Care and ISSE Members

In summary awareness of these frameworks of responsibility will improve and raise standards. Many services and products have at one time been thought safe e.g. asbestos and DDT but are now banned due to improved knowledge research and testing.

Those who do not evolve as information, training and evaluation are not improved as required will not be able to provide a long term satisfactory service and will sink.

The ISSE takes its role very seriously and our next article will be on Landlords responsibilities.

It should also be noted that the final section on manufacturers and testing is an issue emerging at present and members who have experienced but maybe not reported failures of their services and products should advise ISSE asap to enable us to assist.
