They should be well maintained and clear of graffiti, flyposting, weeds and potholes as relevant. The management plan should refer to schedules for maintenance, repainting and renewal, and policies for dealing with vandalism, fly-tipping, graffiti and fly-posting. Any problems should be noted and future plans stated along with a timetable. On site, judges will assess the effectiveness of these schedules in practice, may wish to see them, and may ask what happens when something goes wrong. Buildings should be in use where possible (and ideally used in connection with the purpose of the site), and should look cared for. Any building awaiting a decision on its future should be maintained so that the structure is safe and signage provided to explain the situation to the public. This approach and future aspirations should be documented in the management plan. On some sites, this responsibility may sit within other departments, and in some cases, other organisations. Evidence of efforts to engage with relevant third parties is expected. It is important that connections are made to ensure ongoing maintenance and emergency response, as poorly maintained or damaged buildings and infrastructure have a huge impact on the overall feel, appearance and safety of the site. 13 Equipment Maintenance This criterion looks at the policies and procedures in place to carry out checks and maintenance on: + the equipment used by staff + the equipment used by the public The management documentation should refer to each separately and list the relevant maintenance schedules and regular checks, including the job title of who is responsible. Judges may carry out a visual inspection of any equipment on site. They might ask to see the documentation listed above and ask a variety of members of staff about the details and location of policies. For all equipment used by staff (and public volunteers where applicable), there should be a maintenance schedule; relevant Health and Safety legislation must be observed; and operators must be adequately trained and wear the correct safety equipment. Equipment and related materials should be stored securely. Vehicles should be maintained to high standards and national legislation adhered to in storing and disposing of liquids and materials. Equipment provided for public use (for example, playground and exercise equipment) must be maintained to the highest recognised standard to prevent injury and accidents.
