Every month the Health and Safety Executive, (HSE) produce data of reported cases of Legionella in the UK; sadly some of these turn out to be fatal.

In the case of Industrial premises where Cooling Towers are employed, care homes, clinics and hospitals where vulnerable people may be visiting or resident have more stringent requirements of management under the guiding regulations issued by the Local Authority and the HSE.

Regulation and Regulators

In the UK Environmental Regulation is annexed to Government departments, for example in England the Environment Agency, EA are charged with enforcing the over arching Legislation by which ‘the polluter pays’ principle. The EA are part of the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

As this is the case, any contravention of Environmental legislation can be extremely damaging to the Person, Company or Corporation who might be found guilty of breaking the law and may render them to prosecution and heavy fines imposed by the Courts. But there is a ‘double whammy’, because as well as being fined in the Courts the guilty party will also suffer from reputational damage to their ‘brand’ which may have a more significant long term impact on them.

In conclusion, it is much better to try and ensure that you do not get into a position where enforcement action against the Person, Company or Corporation is being considered by the Regulator.

Our experienced and qualified team can help you devise strategies whereby you minimize the chance that enforcement action will be taken against you. So, if you are interested in avoiding falling foul of Regulators or if you are currently at risk of enforcement action by the EA in England, Scottish Environment Protection Agency, SEPA in Scotland, Natural Resources in Wales and the Northern Ireland Environment Agency, NIEA.

Other Regulators include those like the Environmental Health Officers of District Councils throughout the UK who are charged with enforcing many aspects of Public Health Act(s) including those that pertain to Odour and Noise Nuisance. They can and do issue enforcement orders once a statutory nuisance has been established and if timely and effective action is not taken to abate the nuisance they will take legal action through the Courts to bring a prosecution against the offending party. More than this they have powers to shutdown the activity causing nuisance until it has been satisfactorily removed. Once again, fines can be large and reputational damage high impacting on the financial bottom line.

It is much better to have operational strategies in place to avoid such possible consequences and with our qualified and experienced team we are able to help you achieve your aims of not having to deal with these issues. If on the other hand, you are in a situation where you are being threatened with an enforcement notice, prosecution nor even shutdown, it is important that you act quickly.

Last but not least, and once again under Public Health Legislation, Trade Effluent teams working for the Water and Waste Water Utilities can and do bring enforcement action including prosecution through the Courts for pollution incidents and non compliance with Trade Effluent Consent conditions within that legal document.

Once, again we can help mitigate and help to devise and implement strategies to minimize this kind of action by the Utilities. If you find yourself in this situation why not contact us for a no obligation discussion and quotation.
