Legionella Risk Assessments Scotland

Any landlord or party in control of a building is responsible for ensuring the water running through it is free from material risk to its users. Water systems, if inadequately managed, can become host to a number of risk factors; the most well-publicised, of course, being legionella, the bacteria linked to legionnaires’ disease. These bacteria can multiply quickly, so a proactive approach to your water system is crucial.

As a landlord or property owner, your legal responsibilities for water safety are really quite simple. You need to engage a competent person to perform risk assessments on your water supplies and systems, and work to implement their documented recommendations.

A strong water risk assessment will apply the general legal requirements articulated through statutory instruments (The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH); 2002 and its associated ACOP (Approved Code of Practise) L8: Legionnaires’ Disease: CIBSE TM13:2002: Minimising the Risk of Legionnaires Disease) to the nuances of your building.

While you are responsible for performing risk assessments and ensuring that the water that enters and runs through your building or demise is free from hazardous substances, we have the expertise that will guide you as you meet this life-saving obligation. If you are looking for a legionella test in Scotland, we have you firmly covered for a very competitive price.

FAQ’s

Who can be appointed as the ‘responsible’ person?

The responsible person will take day-to-day responsibility for managing the control of any identified risk from legionella bacteria. Anyone can be appointed as the responsible person as long as they have sufficient authority, competence, skills and knowledge about the installation to ensure that all operational procedures are carried out in a timely and effective manner and implement the control measures and strategies, ie they are suitably informed, instructed, trained and assessed. They should be able to ensure that tasks are carried out in a safe, technically competent manner.

If a dutyholder is self-employed or a member of a partnership, and is competent, they may appoint themselves. The responsible person should be suitably informed, instructed and trained and their suitability assessed. They should also have a clear understanding of their duties and the overall health and safety management structure, and policy in the organisation.
