Water hygiene services for Landlords, such as local authorities, housing associations and private landlords

Did you know that Landlords, such as local authorities, housing associations and private landlords have a legal obligation to ensure their properties are safe for their tenants and visitors in accordance with the Health & Safety Act 1974 and maintaining safe water systems is vital to their protection from Legionella and other harmful bacteria.

Children, the elderly and the sick are all at higher risk from Legionella and many in these vulnerable groups live in housing association properties so the duty of care must be a priority.

Social Housing landlords and housing associations need to know what their obligations are and how they can ensure that their water is safe. The ACOP L8 guidance requires you to conduct a detailed risk assessment on the property and have efficient monitoring systems in place.

How we can help:

We provide water hygiene and treatment services to large and small landlords alike, to ensure your compliance with the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the HSE Guidance ACOP L8 HSG274.
