Robertson Facilities Management
As Legionella control specialists we work together with facility management companies to offer a cost effective solution to make sure their clients fulfil their health and safety requirements.
We recently assisted Robertson Facilities Management by providing legionella risk assessments, monitoring and maintenance programmes and cleaning and disinfection regimes for their diverse range of clients including schools, NHS hospitals, council and industrial properties.
As part of the contract we carried out monthly, quarterly, six monthly and annual visits on the properties.
All commercial buildings have water systems that can be breeding grounds for the harmful bacteria that cause Legionnaires’ disease. Effective control and monitoring of these systems and thorough legionella risk assessments will prevent Legionella bacteria occurring.
Our customers enjoy peace of mind knowing their reputation and the health and safety of their clients and customers is in the safe and professional hands of our Legionella experts.
Tim Sibbald, Water Systems Safety Manager, explains: “All commercial companies are legally required to comply with the Health & Safety Executive’s Approved Code of Practice and Guidance on regulations (L8) regarding the prevention and control of the Legionella bacteria in water systems to protect their students and employees.
“They may be prosecuted under the Health & Safety at Work Act of 1974 and the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH) for failing to manage the risk.” By working together with facility management companies we can offer a cost effective service for their clients.”
Alan Dryden from RFM commented that NWG staff have excellent quality with regards to verbal and written communication and reporting.
“By listening to our client’s specific needs we can tailor the service we provide.” said Tim Sibbald, Water Systems Manager.
