Legionella Risk Assessment

Legionella is a potentially life threatening form of pneumonia that are found naturally in environmental water sources where they pose no harm but if they enter man made systems such as hot and cold water systems they can potentially have fatal consequences if the conditions are favourable. Having a legionella risk assessment can help you to identify whether or not there may be a problem within your buildings water supply. If you are employing people to work within premises then this is your responsibility to ensure that water systems are maintained in a safe condition to provide a safe working environment for all who may have reason or be exposed to use those systems. The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974, the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002 and the HSC - Approved Code of Practice & Guidance document L8 - Legionnaires disease: The control of Legionella bacteria in water systems' are legislations that combine to give employers and landlords a legal responsibility over water systems within their properties.

In order to help you fulfil your legal obligation to these legislations our legionella risk assessment services will provide you with a thorough investigation of domestic hot and cold water systems with a tailored programme to control legionella that includes inspection, water sampling, cleaning and disinfection and auditing. Our legionella risk assessment will also prepare you for a control scheme that can be carried out using our engineers or your own staff for whom we can provide training and awareness. This allows you to appoint an officer to control your future legionella risk assessment where we can also carry out an independent audit to evaluate the effectiveness of any control scheme you undertake in-house.
