What happens after Risk Assessment?
If the assessment shows that there is a reasonably foreseeable risk a scheme will be recommended to control the risk. You will be required to identify the Statutory Duty Holder (premises/site owner) and appoint a person to take managerial responsibility to provide supervision for the implementation of the scheme of precautions. We can provide a log book, log sheets for compliant records and a full monitoring service if required.

The Legionella Risk Assessment should be reviewed every two years. It will be necessary to review it more frequently should changes in the water system occur or control measures are no longer sufficient.

How do I sample my water systems?
