Legionella Risk Assessments

Legionella Risk Assessments for Landlords and Commercial Properties

Did you know that Health and Safety laws compel you to protect your tenants, customers and employees from the risk of Legionnaires’ Disease in all residential and commercial properties?  And did you know that if you don’t comply you could face a fine of £20,000?

What you should do to keep your tenants safe

The Health & Safety Executive released a revised Approved Code of Practice (L8) in 2013.   The code states that you should undertake a legionella risk assessment to comply with your legal duties.  View the HSE guide for duty holders here.

Who can undertake Legionella Risk Assessments?

As a person in control of premises, you must appoint a competent person, with the necessary skills, knowledge and experience.

How can Bluewater Plumbers help you comply?
