Health and Safety Essentials

To prevent work-related injuries, avoid leaving trailing cables or boxes in passage areas as slips and trips are commonly caused by these hazards.

If you bring pets to the workplace, ensure they are clean, adequately vaccinated, and free of parasites. Always supervise them to ensure the safety of both people and other pets.

Promptly clean any spillages you come across. If you require assistance, don't hesitate to contact The Engine House team.

In case of accidents or near misses, report them immediately to the our Management Team either in person or through our Service Desk.

If you're planning to host an event please contact our team to ensure the correct planning is in place. We are always available to help our members with risk assessments to help ensure the safety of you and your guests.




  • Ensure that all electrical appliances are well-maintained at Engine House. Regularly inspect the electrical equipment and promptly remove any that are deemed unsafe, such as those with worn or frayed cords.
  • At the end of the day, remember to turn off all non-Engine House electrical equipment, including photocopiers, coffee pots, typewriters, computers, and printers.
  • Keep hallways clear of boxes and trash to maintain unobstructed pathways, allowing for a quick and safe exit whenever necessary.

Do Not's

  • At Engine House, avoid overloading electrical sockets or plugging extension leads into other extension leads.
  • Never prop any doors open, especially those identified as fire doors, as it can lead to devastating consequences by allowing fire to spread, endangering lives and buildings. Specifically, refrain from propping doors open with fire extinguishers, as this exacerbates the fire's spread and hinders access to the extinguisher when needed.
  • Do not accumulate discarded files, cardboard containers, or other combustible materials in your office or storage areas.
  • Avoid storing flammable chemicals within the premises.
  • Refrain from using open-element space heaters. If you find the temperature inadequate, consult the Community Management team for assistance.
  • Ensure you don't leave food unattended in the microwave or toaster.
  • Never put any metal or aluminium foil in the microwave to prevent potential hazards.


  • No smoking or vaping is permitted in The Engine House Building other than in external designated areas.
  • No naked/open flames are permitted in The Engine House (e.g. candles or cooking or heating food with an open flame).
  • No pressurised containers such as gas bottles are to be store on in The Engine House

Understanding Fire Extinguishers

Fire extinguishers are located at strategic points around the building and different types of fire extinguishers are suitable for different classes of fire.
Please take the time to familiarise yourself with the location and types of fire extinguishers in your vicinity.

However, remember that your first priority is to evacuate the area. Only consider attempting to extinguish a fire if it hinders your exit and/or if you have received proper training to use the extinguisher. Your safety must never be compromised.
