Under health & safety law businesses, landlords and organisations of all types and sizes are required to take steps to minimise the potential risk of Legionella bacteria. In support of these legal requirements the HSE released the 4th Edition of the ACOP L8 and technical guidance HSG 274. The offical guidance requires that all those involved in the assessment, control and prevention of Legionella bacteria are technically competent. We are one of the few service providers in the UK to meet the Government Endorsed Trust Mark standard.
Trust Mark was established in 2005 with Government, industry bodies and consumer protection groups. Trust Mark is the only Government Endorsed Technical Competance Scheme in the UK and operates under a Government Licence from the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. When using a Trust Mark Registered Business, you know they are engaging an organisation that has been vetted to meet required standards and has made a commitment to good customer service, technical competence and trading standards.
