An ongoing Legionella monitoring control scheme ensures your organisation remains complaint.
Stored water, drinking water, process water and closed systems are all covered by the ACoP L8 approved code of practice. It is therefore vital that these water systems are properly assessed to determine the risk of potential Legionella proliferation.
A Legionella risk assessment will enable you to choose the correct course of action for ensuring your water hygiene and management systems comply to the requirements of the ACoP L8.
Employers are required to control the ongoing risk of exposure to Legionella bacteria, this can only be achieved with an effective scheme of Legionella control, which typically invloves monitoring the condition and temperatures of the following water systems:
- Cold water storage tanks
- Hot and cold water sentinal points
Cold water should remain below 20 and hot water above 50 degrees (healthcare 55)
Records of all temperatures and inspections should be maintained for a minimum of 2 years in a logbook
ADVICE AND ACTIONS
Your current risk assessment will define the ongoing Legionella control scheme (temperatures checks, tank inspections, calorifier blowdowns etc ) that is neccessary to control the risk from Legionella. The control scheme is the most important aspect in preventing the risk from Legionella exposure and ensuring compliance with the guidance.
