Amalgamate have created yet another unique partnership, having been chosen to work with Viewpoint Housing Association Ltd. Viewpoint’s aim is to create joy in later years by managing a range of supported housing and care services for older people in Edinburgh, the Lothians, and Fife.
Their goal is to improve the quality of life and wellbeing of their tenants and residents by encouraging independence, enabling choice, and offering peace of mind in a safe and supported environment. They are a registered charity, and are regulated by the Scottish Housing Regulator and the Care Inspectorate.
We’ve begun work already, developing and maintaining Viewpoint’s already robust Health and Safety Management System, reviewing their policies and practice, and ensuring that they are up-to-date and meeting the required standards for both landlords and employers with regards to health and safety.
A big part of our job is ensuring that policies, procedures, and risk assessments are of a high standard and applied consistently, and that recommendations are carried out. We have already completed an extensive gap analysis across the organisation, as well as a course of bespoke training on legionella and food hygiene.
We’ve also been completing DSE assessments for the 100+ people who use a PC/laptop within the organisation. The aim is to assess potential risks associated with using computer equipment, to ensure that workstations are set up correctly, and address any ergonomic issues that staff may have.
We will continue to work in partnership with Viewpoint to embed a culture of health and safety awareness and accountability across the organisation, helping them achieve and exceed their workplace safety goals.
