How we can help you

At Severn Trent Services we have a dedicated Water Hygiene business entirely focused on helping you mitigate the impact of Legionella presence in you water system.  We use state of the art, cloud based compliance tools that provide you with real time compliance information on all of your assets and all assets are identified, barcoded and scanned on each scheduled visit which provides you with a full audit trail of your assets.  Our compliance tools also track repeated failures to help you identify any potential sources of risk. 

All our staff are DBS checked and we work in secure areas, sheltered accommodation, schools and Universities as well as manufacturing, industrial and retail locations.  Staff competency is assessed at regular intervals to demonstrate that the training is being followed and applied correctly in the field. Hence as an organisation all employee’s submit to annual competency assessments carried out independently by our compliance team where future training needs are identified per individual and tailored training plans created. 

We can provide independent Legionella Risk Assessments in accordance with BS 8580 and carry out a full suite of remedial works or provide advice and guidance in the event any issues on your site. 

Where you are responsible for Healthcare premises we will work with you to develop your Water Safety Plan according to HTM04-01 or work within your existing one. 

We use robust and tested processes to help you in the event of a Legionella positive sample result and design a course of action to remove the risk, which may include cleaning and disinfection, dosing and a sampling plan according to ISO19458, BS 8554, BS 7592. 

We are certified by the Legionella Control Association. You can view our certificate here.
