HSE Legal duties for Legionella Control

Are you aware of your legal duties surrounding the assessment and control of water systems in rented and commercial properties? Duty holders, landlords or anyone with responsibility of Health & Safety are legally required to have an up to date & valid legionella risk assessment carried out on all their buildings which have a water system.

Acop L8 is the legislation surrounding the control of Legionella in water systems. This is supported by HSG274 guidance which details all the necessary requirements for assessment, monitoring regimes and system control measures required to keep your buildings compliant.

Acquiesce Environmental Compliance offer tailored solutions which match the specification recommended in these documents. A link to the HSE Acop L8 document is here: http://www.hse.gov.uk/legionnaires/
