Cooling Water Treatment

All cooling towers operated in the UK are treated to the Health & Safety Executive’s HSE L8 Standard.

This Standard covers the requirement for the safe operation of such systems and requires that every cooling tower operator / owner carries out a thorough Risk Assessment on the likelihood of Legionella bacteria growing in the system, and being disseminated from that system.

Waterwide have developed a regime which fully complies with the requirements of the Standard HSE L8 and which has been audited on numerous occasions by the HSE and local authority inspectors.

The first section of HSE L8 defines the management systems which need to be in put in place in order to comply with the Standard which is enforceable under the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 .

Section Two defines the method by which cooling water systems should be operated and maintained.
