Ensuring Compliance with Legionella Risk Assessment Regulations in the UK

In today's ever-evolving property landscape, landlords in the UK face various regulatory and legal obligations to ensure the safety and well-being of their tenants. 

One such requirement that cannot be overlooked is the Legionella risk assessment. Legionella is a potentially fatal bacteria that can grow in water systems and cause serious illnesses such as Legionnaires' disease. Landlords have a legal duty to assess and control the risk of exposure to Legionella in their properties to protect their tenants and avoid legal liabilities.

At SMS Environmental, we understand the importance of Legionella risk assessments for landlords and are dedicated to helping them meet their legal responsibilities in the most efficient and effective way possible. Our team of experts are fully trained and equipped to carry out detailed Legionella risk assessments on all types of residential properties, from single-family homes to large rental complexes.

As a UKAS accredited company, risk assessments conducted us have been assessed and approved by the United Kingdom Accreditation Service (UKAS), which is the national accreditation body for the United Kingdom.

This accreditation ensures that the risk assessments carried out by SMS Environmental meet the highest standards of quality and accuracy, providing confidence to clients that the assessments are conducted in a rigorous and reliable manner.

Our comprehensive Legionella risk assessments include a thorough inspection of all water systems within the property, including taps, showers, hot water tanks, and cooling towers. We also take water samples and conduct laboratory testing to check for the presence of Legionella bacteria. Based on our findings, we provide detailed reports outlining any areas of concern and recommend a tailored risk management plan to address any identified risks.
