Risk Assessment Specification . . .

What areas would be reviewed?

The purpose of a Risk Assessment is to evaluate your plant, equipment, operational and management of the building systems and their risk of bacteriological proliferation.


Your risk assessment would include all hot and cold water services, which will incorporate an

assessment of the design, usage and condition. All information would be recorded on pro-forma

forms and collated within a single comprehensive document. It would include assessments of:


      •      management records

            water stagnation

            system design, installation and materials

            operational and maintenance regime

            storage conditions of cold water

            storage conditions of hot water

            system usage

            temperature measurement


Temperature measurements would also be completed, checked and evaluated to meet the following standards:


      •      Hot water storage at above 60°C

            Hot water storage at discharge points above 50°C within one minute of running

            Cold water storage at below 20°C

            Cold water storage at discharge points below 20°C within two minutes of running

              water distribution. Colour coded: Blue = Mains Water, Green = Tanks Water and Red =

              DHWS. Where hot water is discharged at more than 50°C and there is a risk of scalding

              the risk assessment should identify the need for thermostatic mixing valves or other

              forms of temperature control. Areas requiring remedial work will be covered in your report.
