If you are an employer, landlord or facility manager responsible for the Health & Safety of people in and around your premises, you need to be aware of the appropriate regulations, in particular the Approved Code of Practice and Guidance (ACOP L8) governing control of Legionella and Legionnaire’s disease.
Common areas of Legionella risk include cooling towers, swimming pools and spas, and hot and cold water systems, but whatever way you use water, it is essential that you are aware of the risks and your duties in controlling them.
Invicta Water Treatment can provide a complete water hygiene service to give you peace of mind that your water is fit for purpose and certified as meeting all the HSE standards. We will carry out regular Legionella risk assessments, take water samples and implement whatever chemical solutions may be required to ensure that your water complies with the legal standards. The documentation will then be kept in our secure Client Area, available for you to access whenever you need to present it.
You have a duty of care to everyone in the vicinity of your building. A death resulting from negligence in controlling the risk from your water supply can result in a conviction for corporate manslaughter. You can find a full list of your duties on the HSE website here.
Any of the following could apply to you: Health & Safety at Work etc Act 1974, ACOP L8, BS8550:2010, BISRIA BG29/2012, Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999, Private Water Supplies Regulations 2009. We will advise you as to the standards and guidelines you need to adhere to.
Legionella risk assessments are carried out every two years with an annual review. Most of our service contracts run on a monthly or quarterly basis and include hygiene assessment.
We will supply you with all the necessary documents you need for compliance with the regulations. You will be able to download these from the secure Client Area.
