DIY Legionella Risk Assessment Reports for Just £9

If the person can demonstrate they are competent, then they may not necessarily have a qualification....if the risk assessment can be deemed "suitable and sufficient" in relation to the risk of legionella, they would be ok.

The whole point of the assessment is to make sure people don't get ill or die, as well as making sure the landlord has fulfilled their legal requirement to assess the risk and then effectively manage the risk. As the ACoP used has special legal status, then there is a possibility that person could be breaking the law if they are not carrying out assessments properly.

That's kind of why I would avoid doing the assessment myself if I was a landlord, to be honest....:-)... Read More

DIY Legionella Risk Assessment Reports for Just £9

Whilst I applaud all of you landlords out there that are engineers by trade or who have other relevant experience of mechanical plumbing systems, very few of the comments relating to the legionella risk assessment of your properties mention the type of people who may be living at the property or in the surrounding area to the property. The old saying of "A little bit of knowledge is dangerous" springs to mind. It just seems odd to me that as a landlord, you'd rather save yourself £100 by not using a suitably qualified and competent person to carry out a "suitable and sufficient" risk assessment. Why take the chance? I'd imagine that most of the engineers COULD fit a gas boiler but WOULD you? It's no different with assessing the legionella risk really.... Read More

" I was told that the regulations are designed for any building and you don’t need to document a risk assessment as the regulations do not require you to document it. "

A risk assessment should be documented…. sorry !... Read More
