Harm reduction (or harm minimization) is a range of public health policies designed to reduce the harmful consequences associated with various human behaviors, both legal and illegal. Harm reduction policies are used to manage behaviors in numerous settings that range from services through to geographical regions.

The assessments look at 

  • Full condition assessment and defect identification
  • Visual identification of deleterious / hazardous materials
  • The functionality of the building layout
  • Staff safety and risk assessments
  • Management of the areas
  • Fixtures and fittings (and specification of suitable alternatives). 
  • Quality of installation of existing anti-ligature fixtures and fittings
  • Plan Appraisals of Proposed New Facilities

The report output, produced in combination with on-site staff will include a fully prioritised and costed report, which also identified specific products to reduce the risk of self harming. Again, the outputs can be included within the Building Condition Database.
