IMPORTANT CHANGES FOR LANDLORDS TO HSE LEGISLATION ON CONTROL OF LEGION
As a gas engineer you may carry out landlords safety checks and due to the recent change to HSE legislation on control of Legionnaires disease you may be asked by your customer if you can undertake the risk assessment of their properties.
The law has not changed – the simple fact is that landlords who provide residential accommodation have a legal duty to ensure the risk of exposure of tenants to legionella is assessed and controlled. However, in most residential properties where smaller domestic-type water systems are installed and there is regular water usage, a simple assessment may show that there are no real risks from Legionella. This may be carried out as part of a mandatory visit such as gas safety checks or as routine planned maintenance. It should be possible for landlords to assess the risk themselves but, if landlords aren’t comfortable doing so then they may instruct their agent to take care of the matter or arrange an assessment with a specialist supplier if necessary.
