showerA comprehensive Legionella Risk Assessment is the starting point to establishing an ongoing water system control scheme.

HSE legislation requires that any property containing a water system should have a Legionella Risk Assessment in place, which should be reviewed every 2 years to identify any significant changes in the system, design or operating conditions. The control scheme is the most important aspect in preventing the risk from Legionella exposure and ensuring compliance with the HSE guidance Acop L8 “The Control of Legionella Bacteria in Water Systems”.

How do I prevent risk of exposure?
Employers and managers of buildings are required to control the risk of exposure to Legionella bacteria by:

• Carrying out a Legionella and water system risk assessment

• Preventing or minimising the risk from exposure to Legionella bacteria

• Implementing control schemes

• Record keeping (water system and hygiene log book)

How can we help?
As a Legionella testing company, we will provide you with an easy to interpret Legionella and water hygiene risk assessment report complete with schematic drawings of your water systems.

This report will advise you on the best solution for minimising the risks associated with Legionella and outline an ongoing scheme of control. To support your ongoing management of the risk from Legionella we can provide and implement a logbook system which will establish a control programme and monitoring regime.

All of our Legionella assessment services are registered with the Legionella Control Association (LCA). Therefore you can be reassured that any service offered, meets current legislative compliance.

The legionella report was professional and has given us a framework to work from our own management checklists moving forward Curtis Taylor - Trustpilot Review
