What we do.

Black Sheep Compliance specialise in helping employers and duty holders control the risks from Legionella Disease...

Legionella Risk Assessment

From the pre-assessment meeting to presenting the final assessment report, at Black Sheep Compliance we pride ourselves on delivering a superior risk assessment experience in line with approved guidelines and standards such as:

  • Approved Code of Practice L8
  • HSG274 Parts 1-3 • BS 8580:2010
  • Water Supply (Fittings) Regulations 1999
  • Health Technical Memorandums

The Black Sheep Compliance risk assessors are trained to a nationally recognised standard which allows them to complete water assessments within a vast range of properties before producing informative and client friendly risk assessment reports. All reports are presented to our customers ensuring all results are communicated in a clear manner.

Our service doesn’t stop there! We are experts in helping customers manage actions following the assessment thus providing them with peace of mind their actions are implemented, monitored, and completed in an auditable manner.

Over time, water systems and buildings may be modified. Furthermore, the HSE guidelines may change and new information may be released. As a result, Legionella risk assessments must be reviewed at regular intervals to ensure all related risks are reviewed and managed.

We can pre-arrange a post remedial work Legionella risk assessment to reassess the buildings reduced risks associated with Legionella bacteria leaving you with a compliant and valid assessment.

If you are unsure of your legal obligations regarding Legionella risk assessments, if your current assessment is not compliant, or you need assistance in managing highlighted Legionella related risks, we welcome enquiries and are more than happy to provide a brief and free system health check.

Compliance Audits

Is your Legionella management system fully compliant with the relevant HSE guidelines?

Legionella management systems may be monitored internally or externally by competent persons and service providers. Over time, routine (mundane) tasks may be overlooked or missed. Ultimately the simplest of tasks could eventually present a life-threatening risk if not completed.

Black Sheep Compliance provide impartial compliance audits strictly in line with the HSE’s guidelines as a means of assessing your statutory compliance. By inspecting current assessments, Legionella management records, and site water systems, customers are provided with an informative report highlighting observations and potential improvement needs.

Should you have any uncertainties regarding your Legionella management scheme please contact us and we’ll get you back on track.


Legionella Awareness Training

Who knows what Legionnaires Disease is?

One of the main reasons for improvement notices and fines presented by local authorities and the HSE is a result of insufficient knowledge and competency related to the control of Legionella bacteria.

Black Sheep Compliance offer Legionella Awareness Training Courses tailored to your needs via theory and practical tuition.

Our courses are designed to provide a suitable understanding of Legionella bacteria, how this effects the workplace, your duties under the health and safety at Work Act (1974), and how we can minimise and control the risk of exposure.

Candidates will be provided with an examination upon completion before receiving their certificate of competency.

Regular refresher training is recommended to ensure all persons are competent to the latest guidelines.
