In order to comply with the Health and Safety Commission Approved Code of Practice (ACOP L8) (Legionnaires’ Disease, The control of Legionella bacteria in water systems), companies are legally obliged to minimise and control the risk of legionellosis by:
- Identifying and assessing the risk of exposure
- Implementing control measures and managing precautions
- Recording actions taken
- Appointing a responsible person
Integrated Compliance Services can help you to assess and manage these risks and ensure that you remain compliant. We provide national coverage to our wide range of clients and are a are registered with the Legionella Control Association.
All of Legionella Risk Assessments are completed by City and Guilds qualified, competent and experienced professionals in accordance with British Standard BS 8580 -1.
Who can undertake the risk assessment for legionella?
As an employer or a person in control of premises, you must appoint person or persons responsible for helping you manage your health and safety duties, e.g. take responsibility for managing risks. A competent person is someone with the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to manage health and safety, including the control measures. You could appoint one, or a combination of:
- one or more workers
- someone from outside your business
If you decide to employ contractors to carry out your risk assessment or other work, it is still the responsibility of the competent person to ensure that the work is carried out to the required standards. Remember, before you employ a contractor, you should be satisfied that they can do the work you want to the standard that you require.find out more
