Do I need a Legionella Risk Assessment?
The simple answer is yes you do!
The following is taken from the HSE website;
"The law states that if you are a landlord and rent out your property (or even a single room at home) you have legal responsibilities to ensure the health and safety of your tenant(s) by keeping that property safe and free from any hazards to the health of the occupiers.
The practical and proportionate application of health and safety law to landlords of domestic rental properties is that whilst there is a duty to assess the risk from exposure to Legionella to ensure the safety of their tenants, this does not require an in-depth, detailed assessment.
A simple assessment may show that there are no real risks and are being properly managed and no further action is needed. It is important to review the assessment in case anything changes in the system."
Here at Bluewire we have achieved the ABBE Level 2 award in Legionella Awareness so you can be assured that your portfolio is in safe hands when you use us to carry out the Legionella Risk Assessments.
Using a proven cloud based application enables us to produce a comprehensive risk assessment document that will highlight any areas that you need to address. You can present the document to your tenant(s) and agents either as a hard copy or electronically giving you the assurance that you have complied with the legal requirements.
Whether you have one property, or a growing portfolio get in touch to see how we can help you to remain compliant with the Legionella requirements.
