Welcome to Aquajorvik - legionella control specialists
Minimising and controlling the risk of Legionnaires disease from legionella bacteria in your water system is a key part of your overall health and safety obligation.
At AquaJorvik, we offer the specialist expertise needed to ensure you are legally compliant with current legislation, by providing a range of services including Risk Assessments, Water Treatment, Water Analysis, plus a number of training courses on legionella control awareness.
Serving the whole of Yorkshire, our friendly and experienced Team is committed to offering first-class customer service, tailored to meet your exact needs.
We also pride ourselves in offering an environmentally friendly chemical in our water treatment service, the silver peroxide solution Sanosil, which breaks down naturally. Tasteless and odourless, using Sanosil means there is minimal disruption to your water system whilst the treatment takes place – a big help when you have a busy building!
The services we offer are underpinned by the guidance given by the Health & Safety Executive in their Approved Code of Practice and Guidance 'Legionnaires' disease: The control of legionella bacteria in water systems' (ACoP L8).
In September 2012, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) issued a Safety Notice warning Companies to ensure hot and cold water systems are not a legionella risk.
'The information and guidance on managing legionella risks is well-established and readily available. Control measures should be in place and under regular review.
The safety notice is not asking employers to do anything more than they should be doing already.' Which is following the Legionella guidelines set out in the HSE’s ACoP L8.
