Very important is to have regular contact and meetings with maintenance staff and contractors as it is vital for health and safety to check for all electrical boiler systems, testing off all electrical appliances and general up keep of the building. Fire officers should regular inspect extinguishers and fire alarms. Up until now I have no experience of this side of the company.

Intellectual health: Having some down time for myself alone where I am allowed to relax and reflect.
