Elmhurst Energy Launches New Legionella Risk Assessment Scheme
Elmhurst Energy has launched a new training and accreditation scheme that gives property professionals and Domestic Energy Assessors (DEAs) all the knowledge, skills and tools to offer Legionella Risk Assessments.
In the right conditions Legionella bacteria can exist in the water system of a domestic property and if left may lead to Legionnaire's disease, a potentially fatal form of Pneumonia. Under health and safety law, landlords of residential properties must ensure the health and safety of their tenants.
However a Legionella Risk Assessment will accurately identify, assess and manage the sources of risk which will help landlords and tenants meet their legal obligations. The Legionella Risk Assessment scheme not only enhances a DEAs existing skill set but also provides an additional revenue stream for them.
The risk assessments also compliment a DEAs existing workload as they are quick and easy to complete and can be performed in hours of darkness, which is a limitation for traditional energy assessments.
