Comprehensive Legionella Risk Assessments by AMES UK
AMES provide a comprehensive legionella risk assessment for schools and nurseries. This is a preventative and proactive service to ensure that your school or nursery is as safe as possible from the risk of legionella and related problems.
Assessing risks at your school and taking steps to control risks, reduces the chance that a dangerous situation will arise. The storage and usage of water introduces increased legionella risks and it is always better to prevent an outbreak than treat it. Young people using education or childcare facilities are purposes are especially vulnerable.
In the first instance we can advise you of the correct risk assessment for the type of water system(s) you have in place within the school or nursery. We can then create a monitoring and control regime to help ensure that the children and staff under your care are as safe as possible from any risks.
Colleges and universities also need to put in place regular water testing regimes and risk control. Any educational institution which has long term closures due to summer holidays etc need to be particularly vigilant.
Maintenance staff can also be trained on the most appropriate course of action during the day to day running of the school.
