Remote Temperature - Comply With L8 Without the Hassle!
Ever since the introduction of the Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) relating to Legionella management in 1992, and its subsequent revision in 2001, the labour intensive and time consuming task of weekly flushing and monthly temperature monitoring have been the gold standard in Legionella Management.
Following the introduction of the Corporate Homicide Bill and latterly the Health & Safety (Offences) Act, a much higher price has been placed on compliance and avoidance of negligence. This, combined with increasing pressures on both suppliers and customers to look at more environmentally sound practices, is set to revolutionise the future of Legionella management.
Remote temperature monitoring is a proven technology that has existed in a number of other industries e.g. refrigeration for a number of years. Due to recent innovation this can now be applied directly to the requirements of ACOP L8 and can even eliminate the need for weekly flushing. Amongst numerous other benefits, these include;
- Increased compliance with L8 and reduced exposure to liability
- Cost saving
- Real time data
- Hugely decreased labour costs
- Automatic creation of audit trail
- Maintenance free system requiring only 1 visit per year for tank inspections
- Environmentally friendly
- Secure and reliable
- Less intrusive / disruptive to site
Other applications include water usage monitoring and ‘add ons’ such as emergency light testing, electricity monitoring are just round the corner using the same technology.
