Observation The circulation of the hot water on the 1 st floor WC is at 44º. Calorifier temperature is at 55º Recommendations The calorifier needs adjusting so it reaches the recommend temperature of 60º, this will hopefully bring the hot water temperature up to 50º. We were unable to adjust the calorifier as it is done by a comprised system. OriginatorRichard MoorcroftManagerSteve Kosloff Signature Date27 th September 2007Date27 th September 2007

Monthly Monitoring Meetings Areas of Concern – listing specific sites, on going work, etc. Risk Assessments – rolling programme, any updates, sites on or off contract. Remedial Works – how the risk assessment remedial programme is going, completion dates. Monitoring Sheets – if there are any outstanding. Red Spots/PCAs – we discuss if there are any issues resolving the reds and how we can work through them.

My Top Tip No. 1 Write to each Director with a list of the sites you manage at least once a year, preferably twice. The site list is the fundamental part of the contract. In the eyes of the law just because you dont know a property exists does not exonerate you of blame should an outbreak occur, but if you have actively sought to find out what other properties are within the Councils responsibility then that will be seen as reasonably practicable.
My Top Tip No. 2 Have regular meetings. Although you liaise regularly with your Contractor, I feel its essential that a properly structured meeting takes place and is recorded.
My Top Tip No. 3 Put instructions in writing. Even if you are speaking to your Contractor on a regular basis and ask or mention that something is done or needs doing, always back it up with an . This your record of instruction. I file the under the site name within my file structure on the Councils server, this then builds up a history of events and works done.
