Legionella Assessments Ltd undertake Legionella assessments on behalf of landlords, managing agents, councils, universities and housing authorities to ensure that they meet their LEGAL REQUIREMENTS with regard to a duty of care to individuals in premises other than employees.
We specialise in checking tenanted properties to ensure that the legionella bacteria cannot survive by introducing recommendations, checks and a system of best practice to follow.
We work closely with our clients to ensure that everyone fully understands how to manage and maintain clean water within the property.
We help the tenant to check potential sources and provide them with a check list to follow so that the mains water in the property is safe and low risk for its users.
A Legionella assessment is required every two years, with a bi-annual check in between, and if there is a reason to suspect that the Legionella assessment is no longer valid, for example:-
- Where there has been changes to plant, the water system or its use
- Where there have been changes to the use of the building
- Where new information about risk or control measures has become available
- Where monitoring indicates that control measures are no longer effective
Please be aware that a tenant who makes a claim as a result of ill health which emanates from the water supply can use a number of regulations to support their case. By working with Legionella Assessments Ltd you can be assured that we undertake all the necessary checks and assessments to ensure compliance to legislation.
We cover the East Midlands, an area covered by Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Rutland, Lincolnshire, Northamptonshire and South Derbyshire.
There are heavy penalties in force for non compliance, ranging from a fine of up to £20,000 and/or two years imprisonment.
