Your Legal Duties under L8

As a person responsible for the Health & Safety of employees or customers in a building, and with so many changes to Health & Safety law in terms of updates and new legislation, it can be hard to keep on top of all your statuary requirements.

 

One of these statutory requirements, is to assess for potential exposure of Legionella from your water system(s). Even simple systems can offer conditions suitable for nasty bacteria to grow and potentially harm either you, one of your staff, or even one of your customers!!

You can read about your legal requirements here http://www.hse.gov.uk/legionnaires/ or even easier, give Acquiesce Environmental Compliance a call on 01216083272 or 07875522338 and we can talk you through your legal requirements in terms of legionella control.

Landlord legionella risk assessment

We provide compliant, comprehensive and site specific legionella risk assessments. Many EPC & Gas certificate providers are now offering this service without the required level of competency, which is clearly stated as a necessity in the legislation and guidance documents Acop L8 & HSG274. On top of this, in most cases we can provide these documents at a much more competitive rate, and because this is what we specialise in, we can offer a full consultancy, advice & remedial service following the assessment.
