Minimisation of the risk: Structured framework for a legionella risk assessment
Minimisation of the risk of Legionnaires’ disease continues to be a key public health concern of building and facilities managers. How can risk assessors gauge the risk posed by legionella bacteria in a wide range of situations?
Residential sector: Clarifying landlords’ duties
This year there has been an increased uptake of risk assessments in the private sector as more and more landlords become aware of the disease and their responsibility to prevent it. While the law hasn’t changed, how does L8 affect landlords’ duties and responsibilities? How should landlords and agents assess the risk of legionella exposure to their tenants?
