Legionella Risk Assessment

In the UK the Health and Safety Executive’s Approved Code of Practice (ACoP) and Guidance document titled "Legionnaires' disease: The control of legionella bacteria in water systems" (L8) gives practical advice on how to comply with UK health and safety law with respect to the control of Legionella bacteria.   This crucial publication updated to a 4th Edition in 2013 clearly sets out the vital importance of conducting a legionella risk assessment.


ACoP (L8)  states that ‘a suitable and sufficient assessment must be carried out to identify and assess the risk of exposure to legionella bacteria from work activities and water systems on the premises and any precautionary measures needed.’

The team at Green Compliance are able to advise you on your needs and then conduct a full risk assessment for your premises – whether a single office or warehouse or an entire hospital complex Green Compliance can help.
