Legionella Risk Assessment
The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 dictates that every business who has 5 employees or more should have an up-to-date risk assessment to protect their staff, customers and reputation. In the event of an outbreak, if you can’t provide proof of a risk assessment and legionella control, you will be legally responsible.
AquaCare, our in house water hygiene specialists, offer a wide range of services that ensure your business is compliant with the Health & Safety Executives' ACoP L8. They 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.
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 procedures required to be in place to ensure compliance and manual logging and reviewing of test returns.
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.
