Further information and guidance:

Legionella:
This information will help employers and those with responsibility for the control of premises, including landlords, understand what their duties are and how to comply with health and safety law.  It applies to premises controlled in connection with a trade, business or other undertaking where water is stored or used, and where there is a means of creating and transmitting breathable water droplets (aerosols), thus causing a reasonably foreseeable risk of exposure to legionella bacteria.

Water Regulations:
Making sure your plumbing system is installed and used in accordance with the requirements of the Regulations and Scottish Byelaws is not only a legal requirements but is vital in making sure the supply remains safe.

If you are employing someone to do plumbing work, consider using an approved plumber. They have had specific training in the regulations and byelaws, which enables them to ensure there no risk from poor installation or sub-standard materials that might contaminate your supply.  There is also an added benefit in that they will issue a ‘work completed’ certificate which can provide property owners a legal defence if sub-standard plumbing work is found.

Private Water Supplies:
The quality of private water supplies can be variable. Some have adequate treatment and are well managed, but others undoubtedly present a risk to health due to the quality of the water. If you own or use a private supply it is important that you are aware of the quality of the supply and the risks associated with it. Responsibility for regulating private water supplies rests with local authorities, but there is much that owners and users can do to protect themselves.
