Key Services

Risk Assessments

RPS is a market leader in the delivery of UKAS accredited risk assessments and audits, within the framework of BS8580:2010 Water Quality - Risk assessments for legionella control - Code of Practice. We are also registered members of the Legionella Control Association (LCA)

The risk assessment is the most critical element in controlling the risk posed by the legionella bacteria, as the legionella management plan will be developed from this. It is therefore vital that those with responsibility have confidence in the accuracy and recommendations contained within the assessment. RPS’ UKAS accreditation provides this confidence.

In addition to providing risk assessments we are able to provide schematic drawings and log books, the later either in paper format or through our web - based management system, BHI.


The ability to demonstrate competency in the field of legionella management has grown in importance in recent years. RPS provides classroom style training courses which are included within the scope of services registered with the LCA.

Alternatively, training can be delivered through our eLearning platform. Tailored eLearning packages can also be developed, incorporating client specific legionella management and corporate branding requirements.
