Franks Portlock provides comprehensive Remedial Works that aim to reduce the risk from Legionella and other waterborne bacteria.

Water hygiene remediation

Registered Legionella Control

We are registered with the Legionella Control Association and accredited to the highest standard in everything we do, so you can trust Franks Portlock to provide you with the expertise you need to manage your risk in the most cost-effective way. The engineers are also WRAS-approved for RPZ valve testing and TMV servicing.

Once the risk assessment has been carried out, and the risks have been identified, they must be removed or at the very least, reduced to as low as reasonably practicable (ALARP). Each action raised within the risk assessment must be signed off to complete the risk assessment itself. This would be classed as carrying out Legionella remedial works.
