Legionella management hot and cold water systems
Regulations require employers to monitor and record temperatures of hot and cold water systems and to keep suitable records of examinations, tests and repairs as a means of controlling legionella.
Some of the monitoring and inspections can be done in-house but depending on resources, you may want to delegate some of this work.
Hot and cold water services include cold water tanks, calorifiers, POU water heaters, combination water heaters, showers and spray taps, domestic base exchange softeners, TMVs and expansion vessels. These need to be regularly inspected for temperature, cleanliness/operation and where applicable flushed.
Following the Legionella risk assessment and using the Written Scheme, Alchem will prepare a detailed Allocation of Responsibilities to ensure all tasks detailed in the Written Scheme are covered either by you or Alchem.
All our monitoring and inspection programmes are in accordance with the current ACOP(L-8) Code of Conduct and associated HSG274 part 2 technical guidance.
Each individual member of our water hygiene team is continuously checked for competency. They are assessed on knowledge, skills and attitude as well as in a practical way by means of on-the-job assessment.
Monitoring and inspection programmes start in the office with implementation of the Written Scheme and planning of the work. It finishes with either a hard copy or on-line reporting of results and regular reviews.
