The HSE Approved Code of Practice (L8) advises that ‘organisations or individuals’, who provide residential accommodation or who are responsible for the water system(s) in their premises, are required to ensure that the risk of exposure to legionella in those premises is properly controlled.
Thus, landlords of residential accommodation have responsibilities for their tenants in this area
Our IOSH Certified Legionella Risk Assessors undertake a site survey to determine the risks posed to tenants / visitors to the property from its water system. The results are then detailed in a report showing the risk level of the property concerned. These findings are supported by photographic evidence and system schematics as required by L8. Where necessary any remedial work required to lower the risk will be detailed on the assessment
We operate a fixed fee for residential premises of just £69 inc VAT and have assessors nationwide.
