Legionella Compliance

HSE publish revised legionella ACoP L8 and new guidance documents (HSG274)

Legionella is a risk for almost all water systems found within buildings and must be effectively controlled in accordance with ACoP L8 (fourth edition) under the Health and Safety at Work Act.

If you manage any water system within a building you need to have a risk assessment and some good control measures in place. We can help you achieve this. 

We offer independent advice that you can trust. Our legionella consultants give you helpful solutions with no commercial bias. This means cost effective compliance from a reliable source.

We are registered with the Legionella Control Association an organisation setup to ensure the quality of those providing Legionella risk management services.

We can help you with the full process starting with a risk assessment for legionella, continuing with legionella monitoring of the performance of each system and providing legionella training for all those responsible for controlling Legionella. Our service ensures that you are completely compliant and have minimised the risk, whilst carefully managing budgets and operational challenges.
