Legionella Risk Assessments in Surrey & London

Did you know that it is a legal duty to identify and assess whether there is a risk posed by exposure to legionella in hot and cold water systems?

UK PAT can ensure that you comply with current legislation by completing a Legionella risk assessment on your property to ensure your water systems are safe. These are essential for employers, landlords, and anyone who controls the water system in commercial premises.

There are at least 34 species of legionella – a type of waterborne bacteria – which can cause diseases known as Legionellosis, which includes Legionnaire’s Disease. Legionella is found throughout natural water sources and man-made systems. We can inspect your systems to ensure that you, your employees, tenants, or visitors are protected from these illnesses.

Our fully independent company can carry out risk assessments for a range of businesses, domestic properties, and commercial properties and understand the legislative requirements. All assessments are completed safely and professionally. Upon the completion of our assessment, we can advise you on the best course of action to minimise the risk of legionella.

Risk assessments are valid for two years, though another assessment may be needed sooner if:

  • There are changes to the building’s use
  • There are changes in the water system
  • There are cases associated with the system
  • There is an update in the relevant legislation
  • There has been a change of personnel in the company or before a new tenancy begins

Do you need a Legionella Risk Assessment?

If you are an employer or someone in charge of premises of any size (including a rental property) where people are exposed to water, you must arrange:

  • A detailed risk assessment to identify and assess the source of risk
  • A written scheme to prevent and control the risk of legionella
  • Implement and manage the written scheme and nominate someone to be responsible for it
  • To keep a log book with detailed records

This is an area that can be overlooked but it is important to comply with regulations to avoid prosecution. Our Legionella Risk Assessment will assess the risks of legionella exposure to staff, tenants, or visitors and will advise about ways you can overcome this.

What to expect from a Legionella Risk Assessment?

A Legionella Risk Assessment will include an analysis of your current assessments and records, including all remedial maintenance or work which has been completed. It will involve:

  • Assessing potential hazards and the level of risk

  • Looking at who is at risk

  • Recording the results of the assessment

  • Putting in control measures to reduce and minimise the risk

  • Evaluating the assessment when needed
