A Legionella Risk Assessment is the first step to ensuring compliance with the HSE's ACOP L8 and is a legal requirement under health & safety law. Risk assessments need to be carried out by someone who is competent to determine the possible risk from Legionella bacteria. Our risk assessors are certified by Trust Mark who work with Trading Standards to ensure that service providers meet Government endorsed quality standards. Trust Mark is the only Government Endorsed Competent Person Scheme in the UK and operates under Government Licence from the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
Legionella risk assessments are only valid for a period of up to 2 years which is the maximum period allowed by the HSE's ACOP L8. During the 2 year period the assessment needs to be regularly reviewed to ensure the assessment is still up to date and the measures are being effective. For that reason, our risk assessments come with a built-in review log and document control clearly stating the assessment date, when the assessment expires and how long the assessment needs to be retained for.
Our risk assessments include details of fixtures and fittings that have been inspected during the risk assessment. A list of issues that present an increased risk, action points and a Legionella control scheme. For more complex systems the risk assessment will include a site schematic.
