Legionella Risk Assessment Review


Do I need a Legionella risk assessment review?

  • A Legionella risk assessment is a live document, which should be kept up to date.
  • In order to comply with British Standard BS8580-1:2019 and ACoP L8, risk assessments should be reviewed regularly.
  • A Legionella risk assessment needs to be reviewed every 1-3 years depending upon the level of risk and as soon as practical if any of the following changes are implemented:
    • A change to your water system or water source.
    • An alteration in the use of the building where the water system is housed.
    • New or updated information on standards for risk and control measures is released.
    • A change in the management of Legionella risk control measures.
    • When construction work is expected to be carried out on the building.

What does a Legionella risk assessment review involve?

In comparison to a building's first full risk assessment, a review is a comprehensive overview of this existing information to ensure it is up to date and control measures are effective.

This provides clients with a extremely cost effective way of meeting the requirements of ACoP L8 and protecting your employees and the public for the risks of Legionella.

A qualified Legionella risk assessor will attend your site and review your current Legionella risk assessment, monitoring records and any other control measure data.

This focuses on:

  • An audit of the current risk assessment, control regime and monitoring records.
  • New record of results against control regime and appraisal against risks.
  • The risks which were first identified and how these have changed over time.
  • Any adverse results and recorded responses since the last assessment.
  • An audit of your maintenance and testing records.
  • Check of any on site test apparatus against calibrated equipment.
  • A review of management responsibilities, training records and competency levels.
  • An assessment of any changes to your water system by comparing existing schematics to a building survey.

Following the site visit, the risk assessment review is typed up and issued to you electronically and/or in hardcopy depending on your requirements.
