We are qualified to perform and advise on the necessary risk assessments for the prevention and control of Legionnaires’ disease in rented out, residential properties. Offering advice on what control measures need to be implemented and monitored, we can carry out such an assessment at the same time as your annual Landlord Gas Safety check.
Under general H&S law, organisations, landlords or self-employed individuals who provide residential accommodation, or who are responsible for the water system(s) in their premises, have a duty to ensure that risk of exposure to legionella in those premises is properly controlled.
Assessing and implementing appropriate control measures will ease your own mind and those of your staff, residents, guests, tenants and customers.
We follow the Health & Safety Executives ACoP L8 – Approved Code of Practice and Guidance document “Legionnaires’ Disease, The control of legionella in water systems”.
