Risk assessment and testing - Specific guidance for commercial landlords and tenants

 

The regular usage and turnover of water in most commercial properties means that the risk is generally considered to be low. However, as a landlord or tenant you may be unaware if your tenants and/or staff, customers and/or visitors fall into the high-risk category. Regularly reviewing your risk assessment and water testing (especially if there have been changes to the water system) will ensure that you can take any necessary action in a timely way and comply with current legislation.

 

Do you need a test

A Smart Solution

 

Tenants should always be instructed to regularly clean showerheads and inform the landlord of any problems with the hot water system. It is also important that landlords and tenants check the water outlets (at least weekly) in vacant properties to minimise the risk of stagnation.

 

By regularly testing your hot water system using a testing kit from Smartwater Testing you can ensure that you are following the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) Approved Code of Practice (ACOP L8).
