In the UK there is a legal requirement for all businesses including landlords and property owners to carry out a risk assessment for the control of legionella in their premises.
The practical requirements of this process are set out in the Health & Safety Executives Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) L8 “Legionnaires’ disease: The control of legionella bacteria in water system”.
This ACOP L8 is underpinned in law by the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974, the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH) and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.
All our assessments are carried out in accordance with the requirements of BS 8580-1:2019.
Our detailed reports are designed to ensure the risks associated with Legionnaires’ disease are clearly identified, fully assessed and then summarised in a “Plain English” style.
This approach helps improve your understanding of risk so you can meet the compliance standards set by the Health & Safety Executive in this important area.
