WATER HYGIENE AND LEGIONELLA CONTROL
At Jordan Environmental we believe that Safe Clean Water is surely respected by all of us as one of the most essential requirements for people’s health, comfort and wellbeing and that ‘Water Hygiene’ should not just be seen as Legionella Control but with an ‘holistic’ viewpoint, driven by desire for high standards rather than by the intimidation of legal compliance.
Good quality and hygienic water is an essential requirement for the health, comfort and wellbeing of building occupants. Legislation and Regulation should not have to be the driving force to this goal.
In the late 1980s the awareness of the potentially fatal consequence of ‘legionellosis’ from building water systems triggered regulation to identify and control these risks.
This regulation evolved through EH48 and HSG70 to the most recent ACoP L8 and HSG274. These were supported by Professional Guidance from various sources, which now include BS8580 and BSRIA standards.
It therefore follows that within the Building Services Industry, ‘Water Hygiene’ is a phrase intrinsically linked to Legionnaire’s Disease and more recently, Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
Where many ‘so-called’ experts simply draw the clients attention to the latest regulations, we feel that our responsibility, as experienced and qualified specialists, is to assist in the correct interpretation of them. Whether this be for a minor monitoring regime or when dealing with complex situations, we ensure effective, informed and risk relevant advice.
We hope that through taking this attitude and working together, that we will create a level of understanding that allows the realisation of the value that correct and measured application of our services can deliver.
Ask yourself – does over-regulation create a ‘box ticking’ mentality which then hides the real benefits of Water Hygiene and Safe, Clean Water?
Delivering our comprehensive range of services with integrity, Jordan Environmental strive to offer ‘peace of mind’ and compliance, through realistic and pragmatic application of specialist services and equipment.
