How Legionella Affects Your Business 

All employers with five or more employees must commission a Legionella risk assessment on their water systems every two years

Failure to comply with the legal requirements surrounding Legionella can result in prosecution.

Legionella causes Legionnaires’ Disease, a potentially fatal form of pneumonia. Failure to properly manage your water systems may risks your life or that of your staff or clients.

If the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 applies to your business premises, then you are required by law to commission a Legionella risk assessment on its hot and cold-water systems.

Legionella Risk Assessments

Our qualified risk assessors will carry out a detailed assessment of your premises, which will ensure compliance with the approved code of practice ACOP L8.

The risk assessment will provide:

  • Identification and assessment of the source of any risk of Legionella
  • A written scheme (course of action), to prevent, minimise and control the risk

Our aim when carrying out a Legionella risk assessment is to ensure you understand your water systems and the risks posed to staff and the public. Upon completion, we will provide advice on the best course of action to ensure the risk of Legionella proliferation is prevented or minimised.

Risk assessments are valid for twoyears but may need to be reviewed sooner if there are changes to the building, the water system or its use, signs that the current control measures are no longer adequate, or a case of Legionella/Legionellosis is associated with the system.

Whilst failure to comply to any part of the ACoP is not in itself an offence, that failure may be used in criminal proceedings in a court of law in contravention to HSWA 1974, COSHH 2002 and MHSWA 1999.

Health And Safety & Code Of Conduct

All of our staff work to strict health and safety standards, to maintain staff and client health as well as providing the very best service level. Legionella Control Association’s recommended Code Of Conduct for service providers – a code ETM adhere to, or exceed, at every attendance.

Why You Need A Legionella Risk Assessment

Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 there is a legal requirement to carry out a Legionella risk assessment of your premises where the risk of exposure to Legionella bacteria from work activities or water systems is present.

Electrical test midlands will carry out a detailed assessment of your premises working closely with you whilst on-site to ensure all systems are covered and that any control measures in place comply with the regulations and are effective.

Mr B. M. - Statutory compliance manager

We have used the Electrical Testing Services of ETM for our whole site at Leicester. Beginning with a sample test in a small area to try them out, it soon became evident that this company were professional and knew what they were doing. I had absolutely no hesitation in awarding them more and more work. Having used many standard electrical testing companies in the past, it’s clear that ETM are a cut above as they work to such high standards. My requirements in needing my reports presenting in an unusual way was easily accommodated by ETM. They were happy to go above and beyond to present my reports in a way that suited me; nothing is too much trouble. I would recommend using ETM to anyone. From my initial communication with them, the personnel in the office, to the site engineers, I can’t recommend them enough.
