Creating a Better Environment
Legionella, L8, are commonly occurring bacteria found in water systems which cause Legionnaires’ disease, a potentially fatal form of pneumonia which can affect anybody. People catch Legionnaires’ disease by inhaling small droplets of water suspended in the air, which contain the bacteria.
Legionella risk assessments are mandatory for employers with more than 5 employees, even where the system is simply one mains supplied cold tap. COSHH regulations require the risk of operating a water system to be assessed.
Our services vary from client to client, but can include any and all of the following services:
Our risk assessments are thorough and bespoke to ensure that all areas specific to your site are covered and that you are not left vulnerable to prosecution. We regularly review our risk assessments to ensure that you are fully compliant with the best practice guidelines in the L8.
The purpose of a risk assessment is to highlight areas of risk. You then have to minimise and manage those risks, and that’s where our on-going monitoring, water testing and analysis come in.
We offer a range of water hygiene services to ensure that you are fully compliant with the guidance in the L8. Cooltech are LOGIC certified and are experienced in a range of methods including bleached, chlorine and silver hydrogen peroxide
