Reporting and Logging Programmes

The purpose of a Log-Book system is to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of installation and maintenance, as well as to provide a record of various tasks and observations so that the plant history can be reviewed at any time by the maintenance staff.

Technical Data

Our independent scientists and experts can be commissioned to design, populate and implement bespoke, paper-based and/or electronic data management programmes to enable the reporting and logging of a site's Legionella and Water Quality Management programme.

We are in the unique position to be able to offer clients the implementation and use of our in-house developed electronic management systems – EDC and Compass
