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 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 Scotland-based, we have you firmly covered.
