The on-site Survey
We know when you are in a plant room it’s hot sticky, dirty and all you want to do is get the job done and get out. A piece of paper often just can’t be beaten, the L8MS Risk assessment software comes with a survey sheet so you can print it as an aid memoir for site, scribble on it, even use the back for a sketch. However for those of you who can handle the discomfort our survey spreadsheets run on a number of tablets.
Survey write up
Surveys are recorded in Microsoft® Excel spreadsheets with the option to utilise
standard answers and recommendations from drop down menus where applicable. Use
them or just type, edit or paste in more specific answers and recommendations. Save
the survey and use it again for the next rusty, galvanized cistern with no lid,
just changing the answers that are different.
Microsoft® Word Report
Once you have completed the surveys let the L8MS Risk assessment software deal with the job of pulling together
a report using a company defined report order & content. Imagine all the recommendations
you made in the surveys being automatically added to a corrective action report
in risk order, every shower, infrequently used outlet and dead leg identified in
the asset register automatically added to a, self-generated, site specific control
scheme. Upload photographs with comments and let L8MS Risk do all that formatting
& sizing. The Microsoft® Word output allows final editing and polishing, cover pages
and a table of contents if required.
Legionella Record Keeping Software
If you need to set up a site specific Legionella record systems it is surprising
how long it will take. Having used L8MS Risk you are now in a position to use L8MS
Mange System our Legionella record keeping software. At the touch of a button every location
will be set up with a monitoring and inspection schedule. You just need to say when
to start and allocate the tasks.
We can work with you from training an assessor to proof reading your surveys. The
great advantage of using an online system means that should you request it we can
work with you on the actual survey live, in real time.
There is no ‘standard’ Legionella risk assessment.
If specified at the tender stage L8MS Risk allows more than one contractor to work
on a project as our software is available for any Legionella risk assessment service
provider. This becomes important when it’s time to pull together a corrective action
plan within an organisation operating many sites and the risk assessment review
process is easier with just one format.
- The WMS (Water Management Society) have published an updated
guide to risk assessment.
- BSI (British Standards Institute) have released BS 8580-1:2019
Water quality – Risk assessments for Legionella control. However this is not a specification
for risk assessment, more a guide to what should be considered.
- BISRIA (The Building Services Research and Information
Association) have had “Guide to legionellosis - Risk Assessment” for over 10 years.
None of these will deal with an issue common to many organisations responsible for
the asset management of larger portfolios. Each contractor appointed operates their
own system and is of course confident that it meets the employer’s needs and is
'better than most other risk assessments out there'. Are any of these companies
wrong? Well no probably not, but that does not help a large property owner priorities
remedial works when looking at differing scoring systems and terminology.
