Risk Assessments

Legionella Risk Assessments

Completion of a Legionella Risk Assessment is a legal requirement for properties within our focus industries. Our highly skilled, experienced risk assessors understand the risks of exposure to legionella bacteria and are on hand to deliver a high-quality service and report.

Our reports are manually generated by the assessor who carried out the site visit to ensure that the assessment is tailored specifically to the site assessed and avoid generic recommendations being made, these reports will reflect the applicable governance documentation i.e. HSG 274 in domestic/HTM04 01 in healthcare. 

Our risk assessments are in-depth reports while also being presented in such a way that is reader friendly to all. 

Our risk assessors hold collective experience within the industry working across all variety of water system including, but not limited to healthcare, domestic, industrial, process, recycled and cooling towers so we can be on hand to support any type of system that you have on site. 

Schematic drawings are produced as part of our risk assessments which meet the specifications outlined in the British Standard BS8580-1:2019. Schematic drawings are accurate but simplified illustrations of the configurations of water systems present on site.

We aim to deliver your risk assessment document within 15 days of the site visit being completed. Our risk assessor will inform you of any “Urgent” findings at the time of the risk assessment with a “red report” email also forwarded to the site contact with details of the fault and recommended corrective actions.
