LEGIONELLA RISK ASSESSMENT
Under general health and safety law, duty holders, including employers or those in control of premises, must ensure the health and safety of their employees or others who may be affected by their undertaking.
The first step in Legionella control and providing a healthy water system as part of a safe working environment is to ensure a Legionella risk assessment has been carried out by a qualified and competent person in compliance with ACoP L8 HSG274 and BS 8580 – Risk Assessments for Legionella Control.
CDS Rose Ltd employs experienced and fully qualified risk assessors who will perform an invasive site survey of the water systems within your property. We provide you with a detailed, yet easy-to-understand document, which will include accurate information and risk ratings relating to the findings, as well as practical and efficient recommendations to resolve any issues arising from the assessment. Our risk assessments include a full asset register and survey of your water systems, documenting all of the necessary data and information necessary to establish the inherent, residual and ALARP risks associated with your property.
The assessment will also include a review of your current Legionella control measures and will identify any gaps in your compliance. We can then work with you to advise and assist in closing those gaps to ensure you are adhering to the necessary guidance and regulations. The Legionella risk assessment will also assist in establishing a written scheme of control detailing what is going to be done by whom, and when to minimise the identified risks. We can also provide quality, accurate schematic diagrams of your domestic water systems
