The control of Legionella Bacteria in Water Systems (L8) states that 'persons who carry out the assessment and provide advice should have such ability, experience, instruction, information, training and resources to enable them to carry out their tasks competently and safely, where the expertise is not possessed it may be necessary to resource help and support from outside the organisation.

However with some basic training, some sites may be able to carry out certain elements of the monitoring programme (i.e. monthly temperature checks) in order to reduce costs and to retain ownership, while at the same time receiving advice and support from Bradley Environmental.
