Service: Legionella Risk Assessment & Water Hygiene Survey
Project: Legionella risk assessment and compliance services at Hard Rock Cafe in Glasgow
Client: Hard Rock Cafe
Cleartech Group Ltd were recently engaged by Hard Rock Cafe to carry out a Legionella risk assessment on their Glasgow restaurant. A Legionella risk assessment is required on all properties that contain hot and cold water systems, air conditioning systems or spas, showers and jacuzzi’s. These assessments are conducted to ensure that the properties water system is not contaminated with the fatal bacteria. Failure to carry out the assessment could result in a heavy fine if Legionnaires’ disease is contracted on the premises.
Scope of Works:
Having inspected the property, the Legionella risk assessor provides the responsible person with a comprehensive document, which contains:
- Site survey data and asset register
- Observations with photographic evidence where applicable.
- Risk rating
- Recommendations to reduce the risk
- Schematic drawing of water system
- Legionella monitoring regime
- Legionella and microbiological analysis
We engaged directly with the site managers in the planning and carrying out of all legionella compliance tasks and work with them to make sure there is no disruption to the day to day running of the restaurant. We can advise our client’s on-site team about routine tasks that can be done to remain fully compliant and ensure the staff are adequately trained to carry this out.
Any high risk situations which may arise, are communicated directly to the site manager. Cleartech ensures clients are aware of, and in total compliance with all current legislation with any recommendations we make for remedial and rectification works, being backed up with photographs/evidence where possible. We also guarantee that all works are completed in accordance with BS 8558 specification and L8 ACOP. Furthermore, as registered members of the Legionella Control Association, it is our policy to adhere to “The Control of Legionellosis, a recommended code of conduct for service providers”.
