On 1 July 2018 SPM Assets (known as SPM) began a contract to deliver health and safety inspections for Housing New Zealand, with a new team of inspectors based around the country.
SPM health and safety inspectors will clean, check and install smoke alarms, fit and fix window security stays and ensure freestanding ovens are correctly secured.
They will identify and record any health and safety concerns and work with us to keep the people living in our homes safe.
SPM also has an Auckland-based team responsible for planning and scheduling, managing the tenant call centre and communications service and co-ordinating thousands of inspections each month.
“It has been a big step for HNZ putting in place the new health and safety inspection contract” says Mandy Kwan, HNZ Surveys Project Manager. “ We are now able to do some minor works at inspection while other jobs are immediately logged through our Contact Centre. Over time we’ll use technology more and more to help track and trace work to help ensure all work gets done.”
