It is an HSE legal requirement for staff to be aware of their responsibilities in Legionella Control Code of Practice for any buildings where they are responsible for the public.

The log books will be supplied to you along with a recommendation of where to get the thermometer and how to manage and maintain all the requirement needs to be compliant.

This will allow you (as the duty holder) to know how things work without getting too technical and be able to make the decision on whether to manage this in house, making a substantial saving, or outsource it instead.
