Management Plans & on-Site Training
It is required as stated within L8 that all employees who are directly or indirectly in control of activities that may affect the working of the services on the site should receive the necessary training and should have access to all relevant information contained within the assessment report and all other related information.
This is offered through bespoke onsite training following the completion of the risk assessment or supply of a current risk assessment.
Legionella 2 Year Re-assessment
The Control of Substance Hazardous to Health Regulations 1999 and L8, The Control of Legionella Bacteria in Water Systems refer to the appointment of a “responsible person” to manage the ongoing potential of risks posed at the site.
The purpose of the 2 year re-assessment is to check that these requirements are being met with the completion of on-site records. The 2 year re-assessment will also check that the original report still reflects the current standing of the site.
Legionella Risk Assessments
Legionnaires' disease is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia. There are several types of illness including Legionnaires Disease, Pontiac Fever and Lochgoilhead fever. The purpose of a Legionella risk assessment and water hygiene risk assessment is to ascertain the possible risk of contracting Legionnaires ‘disease from the water systems. The purpose of the report is to establish compliance with current legislation, identify any remedial works that may be required, enable the client to take appropriate precautions so that people who work at or attend the building are not exposed and to provide information to assist the client in developing a management strategy.
