It is a legal duty to carry out a risk assessment to identify and assess whether there is a risk posed by exposure to Legionella from the hot and cold water system or any work associated with it. We offer professional Legionella Risk Assessments and Testing to help compliance with current UK Health and Safety regulations.
The risk assessment will provide:
- Identification and assessment of the source of any risk of Legionella
- A written scheme (course of action) to prevent, minimise and control the risk
Our aim when carrying out a Legionella risk assessment is to ensure you understand your water systems and the risks posed to staff and the public. Upon completion, we will provide advice on the best course of action to ensure the risk of Legionella proliferation is prevented or minimised.
Risk assessments are valid for 2 years, but may need to be reviewed sooner if there are changes to the building, the water system or its use, signs that the current control measures are no longer adequate, or a case of Legionella/Legionellosis is associated with the system.
Whilst failure to comply to any part of the ACoP is not in itself an offence, that failure may be used in criminal proceedings in a court of law in contravention to HSWA 1974, COSHH 2002 and MHSWA 1999.
