LEGIONELLA RISK ASSESSMENTS
Manage the risk of Legionnaire’s disease in your college, university or school buildings.
Did you know all academic institutions new or old have a responsibility under health and safety law to carry out risk assessments for Legionnaire’s disease?
Let us take away the hassle and help you fulfil your health and safety responsibilities by carrying out your Legionella risk assessments. We can make sure you comply with best practice engineering standards and policy to enable management of your responsibility and duty of care.
Your premises and halls of residence have fixtures such as fountains, showers and spa baths or sports facilities with swimming pools that could give rise to sprays or aerosols containing Legionella bacteria. It is here the risk of Legionnaire's disease will increase. Particular hazards are: old and unused/infrequently used showers, water features, machine tool coolant systems, spa baths, hose reel and sprinkler systems, poorly maintained ageing hot and cold water systems, roof tanks, hidden unused pipework and emergency eyewashes.
Having worked with Northumbria University, Durham University and Newcastle University, we have more than 15 years experience in this area. Our expert Legionella consultants are all DBS checked and can offer you bespoke advice and solutions to help you understand your legal duties and manage the risks of exposure to Legionella, keeping your water systems compliant and your pupils and staff safe.
