Risk Assessments

building-300x232Risk Assessments are carried out in accordance with HSG 274, HSE L8 2013 and BS 8558:2015 to identify water systems that might be at risk of colonisation by Legionella or have the potential for creating water droplets / mist that might come into contact with persons inside or outside the building.

The normal operation of the water system / plant will be assessed and any abnormal or unusual circumstances noted.  A full written report is provided including schematic drawing and recommendations to maintain compliance with L8.

 

The risk of Legionella in hot and cold water services can be reduced by:

  • Avoiding water temperature between 20°C and 30°C
  • Avoiding water stagnation
  • Avoiding use of materials that could promote growth of bacteria
  • Keeping the system clean
  • Using a water treatment scheme if appropriate
