Before placing a single property guardian into a vacant property to secure it we request the legionella report for the property. This is initially viewed by our Health and Safety Management Team and is then made known to our DLO and approved contractors who may need to carry out works in the building.
Our Health and Safety Management Team ensures that all affected parties are made aware of these documents and if legionella is found it is removed in a safe working procedure.
Legionella risk is managed in strict compliance with 'Legionnaires' disease: The Control of Legionella Bacteria in Water Systems Approved Code of Practice' and HSG274 guidance.
Risk controls are implemented by Global Guardians before property guardians protect the empty building.
