Legionella Risk Assessments
Hospital patients can be far more vulnerable to infection and less able to combat it. Residents of nursing and care homes are vulnerable to contracting Legionnaires' disease due to their age, frailty and compromised immune systems.
At Source for Business, we offer a wide range of water hygiene services that ensure your business is compliant with the Health & Safety Executive's ACoP L8. We start by providing you with an up to date legionella risk assessment. This will outline any remedial actions required, as well as control measures that can be used, such as regular temperature monitoring and flushing of water outlets. 2020 more than any other year has highlighted the challenges inherent with manual sampling to record temperatures as well as flushing outlets. Consequently, working with one of our Group companies, Aquacare, we are able to install AquaTeq remote devices designed to automate these manual tasks. Removing a person from site can help to de-risk a sensitive or high risk environment. See below for more details.
AquaTeq - Remote Legionella Flushing & Monitoring
We've developed an automatic flushing unit and temperature monitoring sensor, that can be automatically controlled on an online platform. This allows tests to be scheduled according to the needs of the user and all the reports are generated automatically whilst removing the risk of human error.
Depending on the outcome of your business’s legionella risk assessment, we will organise site legionella tests as required.
The standard flushing and monitoring process requires the printing of documents. This becomes a labour intensive requirement, with several required procedures necessary to ensure compliance as well as manual logging and review of test results.
Our legionella system can automate this process. It can provide weekly reports by email or online while storing the base data within the platform, should additional copies be required. The unit is small, compact and is designed to fit any sink, shower or designated sentinel tap using simple ready to install industry standard fittings.
