WA: Practical Measures to Reduce Risk in your Strata Scheme
Join Wal Dobrow from Reserve Fund Plans and Nikki Jovicic from LookUpStrata to explore some practical steps you can take away to minimise risk and make a day to day difference in your building.

Owners have unlimited liability within their schemes. By applying practical measures to minimise risk, owners can potentially reduce insurance premiums and the likelihood of being sued in negligence and keep you and your family safe.

Practical measures can include signage, highlight paint, physical barriers, use of perspex sheeting or glass, maintenance (cleaning gutters and valleys, reapplying non-slip finishes, jetting out storm water pipes), adding handrails, stair nosings, lighting, mats for wet weather, pedestrian traffic conflicts, convex mirrors, warning lights, etc.

How do YOU prove that you have taken Reasonable Steps to reduce risk? Obtaining insurance, and acting on the practical recommendations of our safety reports, asbestos reports, maintenance plans and the like, assist in either eliminating hazards or minimising potential risks to people and damage to property.

Insurers are currently looking for ways to minimise their exposure and have been requesting evidence of the practical measures undertaken by owners for:

1. Safety
2. Maintenance
3. Asbestos Management
4. Valuations being reasonably current

That evidence can be as simple as completing the Safety Action Plans within our Safety Reports and the Asbestos Management Plans within our Asbestos Reports.


Please note, we may be unable to respond to very specific questions.
