About Jordan Environmental

ABOUT JORDAN ENVIRONMENTAL

Based on traditional family business principles, Jordan Environmental strive to offer the highest levels of professionalism and value, overarched with accurate and honest technical advice.

Check us out. Ask us questions about our reports, proposals, recommendations and projects. The answers should be logical, make sense to people of varied experience and will rarely be ‘because it says in this Regulation that you have to …..’ !

We acknowledge that compliance requirements continue to evolve and we embrace and develop positive change. But at our core, the principals of the services that we deliver have and will remain the same.

We have seen many changes to the ‘Environmental’ Building Services industry in the last 20 years.

Most significantly, Legionella Control services that used to be considered ‘niche’ or ‘specialist’ are now incorporated in PPM schedules as an accepted maintenance practice.

This change has mainly been driven by the need for legal compliance and has created an exponential increase in companies and individuals who ‘know the rules’ but have limited understanding of the subject or of building services.

Similarly, new and updated professional standards are increasing awareness of the need for water treatment of heating and chilled closed systems. But are the many beneficial aspects finally being recognised or could this also become a service offered by some as a box ticking exercise?

IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING COVID-19 PANDEMIC

Important information regarding COVID-19 Pandemic

 

The following is not intended to add further anxiety to an already bad situation but is factual advice that Building Services Professionals should already be aware of, but which is worth repeating.

We are working in unprecedented and extraordinary times with the way that the Coronavirus Virus (Covid-19) Pandemic has suddenly impacted on all aspects of our lives.

It is therefore understandable that a majority of companies, organisations and institutions are focussing on their own strategies of operation and protection. At Jordan Environmental Ltd we are facing the same challenges.

A totally understandable reaction to the current Covid-19 issue is to close to all ‘outsiders’ but this ignores a foundation principle of COSHH and risk reduction.

The mitigation of one risk could be creating another.

This is what happening with Water Hygiene aspects.

We urge those responsible for the Building Water Services to consider this aspect when reducing occupancy levels or closing buildings, as the risk from waterborne bacteria, including Legionella, will become elevated as the risk of Covid-19 is reduced.

The mitigation of one risk could be creating another.

Information regarding COVID-19 Pandemic

Bacteria inevitably colonise water systems and when these become irregularly used or mothballed in increasing levels of ‘Lockdown’, the bacteria will start to multiply.

The approach of the Spring and Summer, with higher ambient temperatures creating tepid water temperatures, will create ‘the perfect storm’!

We highly recommend that existing water hygiene regimes should be continued and as well as introduction of other additional aspects that can be undertaken by site staff.

Not every aspect of our service provision would be considered as ‘essential’ but ongoing legionella control and prevention is! This is recognised by leading professional organisations.

Please allow us to attend to your sites where at all possible. Our Water Hygiene Technicians are all well aware of risk levels and the practice of safe procedures.

We are here to assist and will be remaining open at all times for contact and advice, as a minimum.

The one certainty that is undeniable right now is uncertainty itself, so we at Jordan Environmental remain supportive to all clients and associates and wish you all Good Luck and Good Health at this time.

Yours sincerely
Alan Jordan
Managing Director
