A Risk Assessment is the FIRST and ESSENTIAL step in any Legionella Control Programme.

This is underlined in the Health & Safety Commissions ACOP, L8, which makes further reference to COSHH Regulations, Management of Health Safety at Work regulations and the Health & Safety at Work Act.

Our surveyors are trained and certified in Legionella-specific Risk Assessment.

We follow the format produced by the Water Management Society, which we believe to be the most ‘user friendly’ whilst covering all requirements of the ACOP, L8.


A Risk Assessment should be reviewed regularly, at least every 2 years. We can assist with this requirement whether or not we produce the original documentation.
