Water Hygiene Compliance

Urban Environments can provide a full range of water hygiene compliance services to ensure your organisation is meeting all legal requirements, including risk assessment, monitoring and control systems, asset management, water testing and analysis, and training.

To ensure transparency of compliance service, our clients can access all compliance activity data including health and safety information and status updates online via a dedicated web portal. This allows real-time management and also provides complete traceability of your water hygiene programme and policy management procedures.

L8 compliance

The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) publishes an Approved Code of Practice (ACoP) entitled Legionnaires’ disease: The control of legionella bacteria in water systems, which is commonly referred to as L8. This document is “aimed at dutyholders, including employers, those in control of premises and those with health and safety responsibilities for others, to help them comply with their legal duties in relation to Legionella.”

Urban Environments provides a full complement of services to ensure L8 compliance, working closely with you and your organisation. Whether you are looking for expert advice to support your in-house team or need to outsource your L8 compliance entirely, we tailor our offering to suit your requirements.

Urban Environments are one of only a handful of companies utilised by IHG who have continuously operated at a high level whilst developing their systems and processes and retaining quality and value throughout a period of over 15 years.

Compliance audits

When was the last time you reviewed your compliance procedure and paperwork? Are you concerned that your compliance systems aren’t up to scratch? We can carry out an independent audit of your current water hygiene management processes and provide comprehensive feedback and recommendations.

We saved one client over £200,000 following a compliance audit by preventing unnecessary storage tank work which had been suggested by a contractor, and additionally prevented other contractors undertaking unneeded remedial work based on false Legionella positives arising from poor sampling and site procedures (view full case study).
