Local Authority Legionella Control in the UK

Second Element Ltd is the preferred company for legionella consultancy and remedial action at several UK Local Authorities.

We are experienced in helping property and contract management teams ensure compliance throughout their property portfolio, across the full range of authority properties including, Elderly People’s Homes, Day Centres, Schools, Theatres, Leisure Centres, Libraries, Offices, and Accommodation.

We work closely with Operatives, Team leaders, Managers and Directors across  all Authority Committees from Adult Services and Children’s services to Parks and Community Development.

Working closely with Local Authorities we have developed bespoke management tools and computer systems designed specifically for a central team to manage the legionella control and compliance at large numbers of satellite sites.

What our clients say:

    • Legionella control in action: Portfolio Manager – Housing Association
    • Due to social or health factors some of our service users are especially vulnerable; we have been pleased with Second Element’s flexible approach in meeting the needs of our vulnerable residents.

    • Legionella Control in Action: Purchasing Officer – Local Authority
    • We confirm that Second Element is trusted with our legionella control at over 1000 properties. We have chosen to work with Second Element year on year for seven consecutive years.


    • Legionella Control in Action: Water Management Team Leader – Local Authority
    • Our relationship with Second Element started a number of years ago after we tragically suffered a fatality at one of our premises; following a court case that required us to improve our legionella control systems, Second Element was appointed as our Legionella Consultant. Our specification to implement our legionella control regime to the highest standard, and the financial regulations’ requirements,  mean that we are required to continually test the market place for quality and value; we believe that Second Element are the best choice for peace of mind and quality
