We provide risk assessments throughout Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and Dorset.
Our risk assessments meet the requirements of the ISO: 9001 standard. We complete them in line with the HSE’s Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) L8. This provides you with the assurance that your risk assessment will be comprehensive.
Our Legionella consultants will assess the risks of Legionella bacteria at your premises. They will examine a range of factors in this process including:
We enter the results of the risk assessment into our database on site. This improves the accuracy of our work. It also reduces the lead time on the provision of your risk assessment document.
Once we have identified the risks, we will look at each one in detail. Then we provide tailored recommendations to minimise each risk. You may need some modifications to the system design or the temperature may need adjusting. We could advise you to flush and clean elements of your system on a regular basis. It is highly likely you will need to implement on-going monitoring.
