There has been an increasing demand for us to be able to offer services other than asbestos surveys.
So, we have teamed up with a number of companies who are experts in their own fields and agreed excellent rates.
This means that not only can you have all of your surveys and risk assessments carried out under one roof, you can have them at competitive rates too!
Simply let us know which services you require and we will do the rest:
Legionella pneumophila is a bacterium commonly associated with Legionnaires’ disease, which is a type of pneumonia.
It is named after an outbreak of severe pneumonia that affected a meeting of the American Legion in 1976. It is an uncommon but serious disease.
The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 (HSWA) and the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 1999 (COSHH) place legal duties on employers and those responsible for the control of premises, to control the risk from exposure to the bacteria.
The approved code of practice and guidance, known as L8, gives advice on these legal duties and sets out strategies for controlling the risk.
We will help you follow the advice contained within L8 by carrying out a risk assessment and ensuring that regular checks are made and recorded within log books that we provide for you. Water samples may also be collected and taken away for analysis.
Following the legionella risk assessment, we will provide a report that clearly outlines any actions that need to be taken.
We will also be on hand to help you with implementing these actions, if you need us to help.
In October 2006 the Regulatory Reform Order (RRO) was introduced and replaced the majority of existing fire legislation.
The RRO places an emphasis on ensuring that adequate measures are being taken to prevent fires and reduce risk.
RRO covers both non-domestic premises and communal areas within domestic dwellings.
The process generally starts with a fire risk assessment which will identify sources of ignition, sources of fuel, those at risk, any control measures which are currently in place and means of escape.
Based on the assessment, any significant findings will be raised and put into an action plan so that any risk can be reduced as much as is reasonably practicable.
Remedial works may include things as simple as ensuring flammable liquids are kept within locked metal cabinets through to more costly solutions, such as fully automated detection systems.
Following the fire risk assessment, our report will clearly show what actions need to be taken and we’re also be on hand to help, should you need further assistance.
The introduction of Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) has been a gradual one, over a number of years, depending on the type of building.
However, if you buy or rent a commercial or residential property, you must now have an EPC.
Also, any newly constructed buildings must have one.
All public authority buildings and public buildings with a useful floor space of over 1000m² will require what is known as a Display Energy Certificate (DEC).
EPCs and DECs were introduced as part of a government initiative to dramatically cut carbon emissions within the UK and aim to assess the energy efficiency level of buildings.
Once the efficiency level has been determined it is possible to introduce measures to increase the efficiency of the building and, although this is optional and at the property owner’s choice, introducing these measures can reduce fuel costs in the long term.
Assessments must be carried out by qualified energy assessors, and that’s where we come in. Following the assessment you will be provided with a certificate which shows the performance level of the building, together with recommendations.
