A Legionella Risk Assessment is a legal requirement of the Health & Safety at work Act and COSHH. They state in accordance with ACoP L8, a Risk Assessment must be carried out and renewed every 2 years to assess, prevent & control the risk, 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, one being a full assessment and the other a Landlord Legionella Risk Assessment. Landlords have a legal duty to assess the potential Legionella risks of any of their properties, that will be used as rental accommodation. Once the Risk Assessment is completed 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 the Remedial works needed to be carried out, in order to give our clients the best of service & look after their Health & Safety.
