Our property risk management system

Our risk management system meets legal minimum standards to keep you, your members and visitors safe. The system also helps protect the MS Society financially - and you from personal liability.


In order for a day centre, holiday home or shop to open during the COVID pandemic, the relevant COVID specific risk assessment and supporting documents must be completed. These must be reviewed by a member of the MS Society health and safety team who will then sign the building off as COVID safe.

The details for each type are laid out in each property file.

Risk assessments

The purpose of risk assessment is to:

  • show all the foreseeable risks that could be found in a particular situation
  • determine the level of risk
  • develop control measures that can be put in place to avoid these risks

Your group must carry out risk assessments if you have property that is owned by the MS Society, or where the lease or rental agreement indicates you have upkeep and maintenance responsibilities.
