Provide Legionella Risk Assessments

Protect tenants and homeowners against the potentially deadly legionella bacteria as a Legionella Inspector.

The Health and Safety Executive HSE states that landlords have a legal duty to assess and control the risk associated with legionella bacteria. As a Legionella Inspector you will help landlords meet their obligations by carrying out inspections and providing professional reports.

How to join the scheme

In order to join Elmhurst's Legionella competency scheme you must attend a Legionella training course. If you have already completed a training course (even with another provider), you can go right ahead and apply for membership!

Why become a
Legionella Risk Assessor?

Legionella bacteria can be lethal and therefore many local authorities require that landlords carry out a Legionella risk assessment before they are allowed to rent out their properties.

In Scotland, all local authorities require landlords to carry out a legionella risk assessment.

This presents a unique opportunity for those already conducting onsite assessments to start offering this additional service and create an additional revenue stream.
