Legionella Risk Assessment

Shower head
Scottish Water Scientific now offers Legionella Risk Assessment and Legionella Control services to enable you to meet your requirements under Health and Safety at Work legislation and COSHH.

All employers and building owners are now responsible for ensuring a Legionella Risk Assessment is carried out on all buildings which can be accessed by the public or are a place of work. These include hotels, guest houses, campsites, leisure facilities, hairdressing salons, rented accommodation, healthcare facilities and offices. They can carry out the risk assessment themselves if they feel they are competent to do so, or alternatively, they can employ the services of a provider such as Scottish Water to carry out the assessment on their behalf.
