The risk assessments are usually carried out as a part of our legionella risk management programme that which will help manage the risk of Legionnaires’ disease.
Our Risk assessments have been developed in accordance with the guidelines and recommended practices issued by the UK Health & Safety Executive L8 and the Health and Safety Commission (HSC). A risk assessment will have a significant impact on reducing liability should any problems occur. Following a site survey, our qualified and experienced risk assessor will produce a comprehensive report.
The legionella risk assessment report will identify any risks including any remedial action necessary to meet current standards and legal requirements.
A schematic drawing of your water system and a guide to complying with the Associated Code of Practice (ACOP L8) will also be provided.
