What do you have to do?
If you are an employer or someone in control of premises, including landlords, you must understand the risks associated with legionella.
As an employer, or person in control of the premises, you are responsible for health and safety and need to take the right precautions to reduce the risk of exposure to legionella.
Carrying out a risk assessment is your responsibility. You may be competent to carry out the assessment yourself but, if not then you must call on the help and advice of an outside party such as ACA Health & Safety Services.
As stated by the Health & Safety Executive the person responsible for managing Legionella risks needs to understand your water system, the equipment associated with the system such as pumps, heat exchangers, showers etc, and its constituent parts. The person must be able to identify whether they are likely to create a risk from exposure to Legionella.
What to Expect?
When you book to have a legionella assessment carried out by ACA Health & Safety Services we will organise for a fully qualified engineer to visit your premises at a time that suits you.
The engineer will inspect your water system and advise you of any control measures that are required to reduce the likelihood of harm being caused from exposure to Legionella. You will be provided with a Legionella Assessment report that you can hold on file as evidence that the Legionella Assessment has been carried out.
How can ACA Health & Safety Services Help?
ACA can send a fully qualified engineer to your premises to carry out your Legionella Assessment.
