Determining Fair Pricing for Legionella Risk Assessments in the Hospitality Industry

Maintaining compliance while upholding quality and service standards remains paramount for businesses in the hospitality sector. Whether you’re managing a hotel, restaurant, or any other establishment, ensuring Legionella risk assessments are conducted at fair prices without compromising on efficacy is crucial. This blog aims to provide insights tailored to the hospitality industry, helping you make informed decisions when seeking Legionella risk assessment services.

A good starting point for finding reliable Legionella risk assessment providers is the Legionella Control Association (LCA) website. By browsing through the directory of approved contractors on the LCA website, you can identify reputable suppliers who adhere to stringent standards in Legionella bacteria control for water systems.

Legionella risk assessments typically involve consultancy services that require on-site visits and the subsequent generation of detailed reports. To obtain accurate pricing, contractors usually assess the time required to complete the assessment and generate the report. This assessment is based on a predetermined day rate, which varies depending on factors such as the complexity of the site and geographical location.

Several factors influence the cost of Legionella risk assessments:

Geographical Location: The location of your establishment affects travel time, which is factored into the overall cost. While choosing local contractors may be advantageous for single or nearby sites, opting for contractors from outside your area could lead to cost savings, especially for franchises and chains.

Complexity of Water Systems: The complexity of your water assets and systems impacts the duration of the assessment. Providing comprehensive information about your establishment, including system intricacies, enables contractors to provide accurate estimates. All water assets, from domestic systems to specialized equipment, should be included in the assessment.

Practical Outputs: Beyond ensuring compliance, Legionella risk assessments offer valuable insights into your water assets. Discussing practical outputs with suppliers, such as reporting formats for non-compliances, schematic drawings, electronic asset registers, and integration with existing building schematics, can enhance the utility of the assessment.

Understanding the estimated duration of the assessment and the quality of the resulting report is essential for hospitality businesses. Industry rates typically range from £350.00 to £600.00 per day for qualified Legionella risk assessors. Engaging in transparent discussions with suppliers regarding assessment duration fosters transparency and ensures alignment of expectations.
