Legionella Risk Assessment

Do you need to appoint a competent person to complete a Legionella Risk Assessment?

The Health and Safety Executive's approved code of practice and guidance for Legionella applies to:

'any undertaking involving a work activity and to premises controlled in connection with a trade, business or other undertaking where water is used or stored and where there is a means of creating and transmitting water droplets which may be inhaled, thereby causing a reasonably foreseeable risk of exposure to Legionella bacteria.'

So if you have water on your site that people can be exposed to, a Legionella risk assessment should be in place to assess and manage the risk of Legionella bacteria.

Scientific Services is an independent, analytical environmental consultancy and we can arrange for an approved supplier to undertake a Legionella risk assessment on your behalf - our expertise in this area ensures that credible suppliers, who are registered with the Legionella Control Association, are appointed.

Once produced, a member of our experienced team will review the risk assessment and will identify and rectify any training needs or system developments that may be required to ensure that Legionella is correctly managed at your premises.

In addition to this, our analytical position within the market place also ensures that we offer un-biased, impartial advice to our customers, and means that we have no vested interest in recommending costly water treatment services unless deemed absolutely necessary.
