School kidsFor most schools and colleges, the key remaining risk is the potential disturbance of asbestos during maintenance or construction works.

There are specific actions that you must take where work is carried out on the premises, which might disturb asbestos materials, including upgrading, refurbishment or demolition. This includes any work that disturbs the fabric of your building, whether it is small-scale repair work carried out by your own staff or a large-scale project that is being contracted out.

Legionella and Water Hygeine Risk AssessmentsWater hygiene experts warn that Legionella bacteria may pose a danger to people returning to their places of work. As COVID19 lockdown restrictions continue to lift in many parts of the country, people are tiptoeing back into everyday life. But people heading back to their places of work may face a new danger hidden within the buildings water systems.

Bradley Environmental are warning employers that a prolonged period of inactivity in buildings could spur the growth of Legionella. When water systems shut down, water becomes stagnant and chlorine and other disinfectants dissipate. When water isn’t in regular use, its temperature can range between 20 - 45 °C, which is an ideal breeding condition for bacteria.
