This is written by the HSC for duty holders, including employers and those with health and safety responsibilities for others to help them comply with their legal duties. These include identifying and assessing sources of risk, preparing a scheme to prevent or control risk, implementing, managing and monitoring precautions, keeping record of precautions and appointing a manager to be responsible for others.
In 1999 the British Association of Chemical Specialties (BACS) and the Water Management Society (WMSoc) set up the Legionella Control Association (LCA). The LCA aims to maintain the safety of water systems and minimise the risk of Legionnaires' disease resulting from badly maintained systems. L8 was formulated allowing companies dealing with Legionella control to follow its objectives and adhere to a standard of practice.
Applicable since 1st July 1999 in England and Wales and 4th April 2000 in Scotland.
