Safety Standards in Corporate Housing Units

Subscribe to our blog:

Home should feel safe and secure for everyone. Whether someone is relocating for a few years or a few months, their housing should be one place that is the most comfortable in a new, unfamiliar city. 

Dwellworks takes great care to ensure that each Corporate Housing unit will provide this feeling of security for all tenants. In fact, Dwellworks recently gained the Association for Serviced Apartments Providers (ASAP) Certification in Germany and Mexico. This certification is earned after passing a series of luxury and safety standards. The ASAP program was established through the Corporate Housing Providers Association (CHPA) as an objective evaluation for quality assessment of units. 

Safety is a top priority for Dwellworks as a Corporate Housing Provider. Temporary housing accommodations including corporate housing, aparthotels, and serviced apartments vary greatly among countries. Therefore, there is no global standard for safety standards

Consider these safety measures that many of our varied units feature: 

  • Fire extinguishers and fire blankets
    • Depending on the country, one or both of these may be required in rented units
  • Smoke alarms
    • The layout of the unit determines how many alarms are necessary
  • Fire doors
    • These are installed in housing communities to reduce the spread of flames or smoke in the event of a fire 
  • Fire resistant furnishings
    • Furniture with flame retardant features are typically used in hotels or offices
  • Handicap accessible housing
    • Countries are starting to pass more legislation to make units accessible for all  
  • Carbon monoxide (CO) detectors 
    • CO is a colorless, odorless, toxic gas
  • 24/7 help lines
    • For sudden, non-life threatening emergencies like a plumbing issue, we can provide a quick response
  • Multiple verification entry
    • A combination of keys, magnetic fobs, pass codes, or desk guards prohibit outsiders from entering buildings

When considering your new home, keep in mind that units do not include all of these features, but they will have the relevant precautions requested by national and local authorities to keep tenants safe. 

The search for temporary housing can be overwhelming if you are not sure what to consider. When seeking accommodation with Dwellworks for a long or short term assignment, you only have to remember one thing: it doesn’t get safer than Dwellworks Corporate Housing.
