Legionella Risk Assessments Leeds + UK Wide

Public and Private organisations such as NHS estates, local authorities, MOD and commercial building owners are required to properly manage the health risks inherent in water usage and address the issue of preventing pathogen contamination. Under general Health and Safety law, Approved Code of Practice (ACoP) L8, you must consider the risks from Legionella that could affect your employees or members of the public, and take suitable precautions.
