    Preparing For Your Legionella Risk Assessment in Sheffield

    There are some preparation steps you should take before our risk assessors arrive at your property. If you have previously had a risk assessment and you have the paperwork/records available this should speed up the testing and monitoring process.

    Alternatively, if you do not have records of past tests, but you know where your water systems are, this will again help speed up the process. If you have never had a test and do not know where your systems are, this won’t be a problem, as our team will be able to identify all water systems in your building.

    The Legionella Risk Assessment Process

    The assessment itself is designed to assess the Legionella risks on site and within the water system and recommend control measures and any required remedial work to ensure water systems are compliant.

    You will receive a report after the assessment has been completed, which will include:

    • An executive summary of our findings
    • CAD schematic drawing is provided
    • A monitoring programme to ensure future compliance
    • Advice from our team on how to monitor and assess your water systems

    If water samples are required Guardian will take these from the relevant areas following agreement from the client, you will receive a certificate from the UKAS Laboratory within 2 weeks of the sample completion date. We will then forward your results onto you.
