A Legionella risk assessment is a legal requirement for all businesses in Scotland that expose the public or their employees to their water system, this includes private landlords. A legionella risk assessment is the starting point for all other Legionella control requirements and should only be conducted by competent people that are trained to do so.
Our Legionella risk assessments are tailored for landlords, commercial use buildings and industrial sites in Scotland. We use a simple report layout with a traffic light system to make it easy for you to understand and use as a working document. You will also receive a Legionella control scheme with every risk assessment that details what controls are required and at what frequency. We then give you a template to document these controls following the appropriate Health & Safety Executive (HSE) guidance notes.
Stored water presents many risks from Legionella and can also lead to other water quality issues if the systems aren’t properly maintained. For this reason, it’s essential to regularly inspect your cold water storage tanks and complete remedial cleaning works as required. We are experts in water tank and system cleaning procedures and can ensure that your system is maintained to the most hygienic condition, providing high quality water to your customers.

Private water supplies include any water system that isn’t fed from the mains water network that is provided by Scottish Water. This may include domestic or commercial properties in rural locations where there is no access to mains water supplies and the only source of water is from a private water supply.
According to the Drinking Water Quality Regulator (DWQR) for Scotland, approximately 3% of the Scottish population drink from a private water supply (that’s roughly 160,000 people). Private water supplies in Scotland are typically from springs, streams, boreholes and lochs. The water quality can vary drastically between sources and there’s no “one size fits all” system that can treat every supply. It’s essential that suitable water treatment be installed to remove all contaminants and disinfect the water before use.
