Geopure is a leading independent provider of specialist services relating to assessing, testing and monitoring the safety of hot and cold water systems, water tanks, cooling towers and in particular the risk from exposure to Legionella bacteria.
We work with a broad range of organisations assisting them in the prevention, control and compliance of the risks associated with Legionella bacteria in line with the Governments Health and Safety Executive Approved Code of Practice (HSE ACOP L8). All businesses have a legal responsibility to ensure their water systems comply with the current Health and Safety legislation. The revised ACoP L8 (fourth edition) The Control of Legionella Bacteria in Water Systems, and the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 place strict obligations on you to safely manage the risks associated with Legionella.
Failure to comply with this legislation could potentially lead to large fines or in some circumstances imprisonment. Furthermore outbreaks of Legionnaires’ disease also tend to receive significant media attention which can be extremely damaging to the brand reputation of the organisations involved.
Geopure will undertake all risk assessments, testing, disinfection’s and monitoring activity, our aim is to provide you with peace of mind thus allowing you to focus on your core activities. The events leading to an outbreak are known as the causal chain.
We have to break the chain in as many places as possible, the more breaks, the greater the reduction in ‘risk’ and this is what our Risk Assessments are designed to achieve.
