The HHSRS provides a way that hazards can be assessed and the best way of dealing with them identified. If a hazard is a serious and immediate risk to a person's health and safety, this is known as a Category 1 hazard. If a hazard is less serious or less urgent, this is known as a Category 2 hazard. If you have concerns about the condition of your home you should contact your landlord, where you are a tenant, or contact the Health and Housing Team at Stafford Borough Council for advice and support. Where hazards are found we will work with the landlord or owner of the property to remove or reduce the hazards. Advice on Coronavirus for residents and businesses.

Housing Health and Safety Rating System: The 29 Hazards
A consultation took place in February of this year to consider options to update and simplify the process. Housing Minister, Heather Wheeler MP has clarified that they will be moving forward with Option 2, to improve, clarify and modernise HHSRS and will address whether any of the 29 hazards can be removed or combined. It will directly address what they have been told by experts in the field: that the system should be simplified, that minimum standards for common health and safety hazards should be developed and that digital solutions for inspecting rented houses and flats should be explored. The UK Government has not stated a date for when the changes will be implemented. However, it is expected that the changes will begin to be implemented later in ARLA Propertymark members can access a range of information to help them comply and continue to be the best possible agents.
