New Legionella Guidance Issued Impacts UK Landlords

The Health and Safety Executive have issued new guidance in their document HSG274 (part 2) which details the requirements for the control of legionella bacteria in hot and cold water systems. Landlords of residential properties have a legal duty to ensure that the risk of exposure of tenants to legionella is properly assessed and controlled. Landlords are now required to ensure all properties have undergone a legionella risk assessment and have a legionella control regime in place where appropriate.  We have created a summary document which details the key issues; please get in touch with our Head Office and we will send you our guide for free.
