Our Legionella Prevention & Management Responsibilities

If you are an employer, or someone in control of premises, including landlords, you must understand the health risks associated with legionella.

ACOP L8 is the legislation which governs the responsibilities of employers with premises where water is used or stored, or premises where water droplets can be created or transferred. If water can be inhaled, it creates a risk of exposure to legionella bacteria.

As someone in control of the premises, you are responsible for Legionella prevention, this includes ensuring every building you manage has a valid risk assessment. As part of a Legionella prevention and management plan, it should be reviewed regularly to identify any changes or invalidity.

Legionella Prevention / Water Hygiene Risk Assessment

To ensure Legionella prevention, Cold Water Storage provides a thorough risk assessment, which comprises of a site survey by one or two of our risk assessors. We risk assess all the domestic water systems in place and ensure that important data and pictures are collected.

This risk assessment will allow us to fully understand the water system on site and assess any tanks, pipe work and other assets, which are examined as part of the risk assessment. Where we conclude that there is no reasonably foreseeable risk, or the risks are low and are being properly managed to comply with the law, your assessment is complete.

Existing controls must be maintained, and the Legionella prevention assessment reviewed regularly in case anything changes in your system. Where issues are identified with the water system we can complete a full survey of the problem there and then and put a proposal together for the different corrective options along with costings.

Cold Water Storage has a team of mechanical fitters and vast knowledge of the legionella industry, so we are able to suggest several options depending on budget and risk factor.
