Your duties under the law
You have a number of duties to control the risks of legionella and the law requires that you consider the risks from legionella that may affect your staff, pupils or members of the public and take suitable precautions.
As an employer or a person in control of the premises (e.g. a landlord) where you manage, for example, a premises with hot/cold water services (e.g. showers) and/or a premises with wet cooling systems (e.g. cooling towers and evaporative condensers), you must have a Legionella Risk Assessment in place, ensuring that the remedial works highlighted have been actioned and ensure the management of the regular testing.

Legionella Risk Assessment
Argonaut Heating Ltd have a team of qualified assessors who will carry out a detailed assessment of your premises, which will ensure compliance with the Approved Code of Practice ACOP L8.
The building-specific Legionella Risk Assessment report generated will identify any risks as well as any remedial action necessary to meet current standards and legal requirements.
Our fully documented Legionella Risk Assessment identifies and evaluates potential sources of risk and includes a full asset register outlining the water systems which fall within these guidelines on your site, outlines the current condition of the water systems and whether water temperatures are satisfactory for the control of legionella bacteria.
The Legionella Risk Assessment will define any remedial actions required to achieve compliance with the guidelines, a schedule for on-going water hygiene monitoring and identification of on-site personnel training requirements.
We will quote a fully inclusive price to attend site for the survey, carry out the Legionella Risk Assessment and produce your report.
We will also provide a quotation for any remedial actions or works required to achieve compliance with the guidelines.
