Safety Hazards Q&A

Health and Safety Scenario

 

QUESTION

We are a block of fifty flats and our landlord has told us he is going ahead to remove a safety hazard from the roof without following the usual consultation process "due to the urgency and the large costs that the development would incur".

My understanding is that even with urgent works he needs to get authorisation to bypass the section 20 process to speed things up. Has there been a change in the law?
