You are required to have a legionella risk assessment by law – but it DOESN’T have to be a lengthy or complicated process.
The Simple Guide to Legionella Risk Assessments and Primary Water Services
What the law says you MUST do to protect your business
A legal requirement to be compliant with The Approved Code of Practice L8 (ACoP), means that a legionella risk assessment is essential. There are a number of ways the disease itself can be contracted, but the main locations that may contain bacteria include offices, hospitals, leisure centres and hotels within their water supply systems such as purpose-built water cooling towers and systems that feature variable water temperatures.
Legionnaires disease can occur when a person inhales microscopic water droplets and can lead to serious side effects, and sometimes even death. Whether you’re the person in control of the building or it’s your responsibility to take care of the water system’s hygiene, we deliver a comprehensive and thorough risk assessment that ticks all the boxes. Once the assessment has been carried out we’ll discuss what steps are best to take next if any cases have been found and talk about a solution moving forward to control further growth of bacteria.
