Risk Assessment Services

A Legionella Risk Assessment is a legal requirement of the Health & Safety at work Act 1974 and COSHH. They state in accordance with ACoP L8, that a Risk Assessment must be carried out and renewed every 2 years to assess the risk prevent & corisk, that Legionella has to your building and the people in it. Even if someone doesn’t contract Legionella in your workplace, you still are at risk of prosecution if procedures aren’t in place.

There are two types of Legionella Risk Assessments:

  • Full Assessment
  • Landlord Legionella Risk Assessment

Landlords have a legal duty to assess the potential Legionella risks in any of their properties, that are used as rental accommodation. Once the Risk Assessment is complete, it is then the Landlords responsibility to manage those potential risks and take preventative measures to reduce the risk of contamination.

After our assessments we will always give our clients the best advice for any Remedial works that need to be carried out, in order to give our clients the best service, with focus on their Health & Safety.

Landlord Risk Assessment

If you are a Landlord and you actively rent out your property, you have a responsibility in accordance with Health and Safety Legislation to assess, prevent and control the risks, of potential sources that cause Legionnaires’ Disease.

In order to be able to prevent and control the risks, you would need to carry out a Risk Assessment first – we can then give you help and advice through our detailed risk assessment reports of the steps you need to take in order to minimise the risk.

Included with our Risk Assessments is a Schematic Diagram of your Water System and Shower Head Cleaning!
