Stakeholder - ALS Environmental

LCA audit outcome and membership extension


The Legionella Control Association (LCA) is a voluntary organisation whose membership comprises providers of services and products concerned with the control of legionella bacteria in water systems. ALS Environmental have been members of the LCA for in excess of ten years.

The primary aim of the LCA is to keep water systems safe and minimise the risk of cases of Legionnaires’ disease caused by poorly maintained systems. All member organisations are audited every two years to ensure compliance with the primary aims of the LCA code of practice.

During December ALS were audited by the LCA as part of this audit process. The auditor was very impressed with the processes and procedures applied by ALS, with only one minor point to clarify, which was closed out before Christmas 2015. 

By using the instant and informative confirmation technique known as MALDI-ToF, ALS Environmental are able to provide additional species information on Legionella and all other microbial species. ALS have invested heavily in developing our MALDI-ToF database to now include all of the ESKAPE pathogens, Mycobacteria and Stentrophomonas in addition to identifying 56 Legionella species.

Following the LCA audit, Pervinder Johal, ALS Environmental Microbiology Operations Manager for our Coventry laboratory comments:

Retaining our LCA membership is seen as critical to our plans to grow our Microbiology department. We continue to plan to grow our MALDI-ToF database throughout 2016 to ensure that we maintain our position as one of the markets leaders in the Water Treatment sector.

We had potential water quality problem due to the actions of a third party and needed samples taken as a matter of urgency. Although this was outside the strict terms of our contract with ALS they were able to provide a sampler on a Friday afternoon, get the samples taken and returned to their labs for analysis.

They backed this excellent performance up by emailing us the sample results over the weekend. All in all a great piece of customer service!
