As we get further into 2024, a growing number of businesses are realising the importance of smart outsourcing. There are a growing number of service providers that can help you with the tasks necessary to run your business, and choosing the right provider is rarely an easy task.

One area where it’s extra important to choose the right option is in the realm of safety and risk management. With that in mind, we decided to go through some of the main points to look out for when finding a water hygiene specialist in 2024.

Connection with professional bodies

A good place to start when it comes to researching hygiene specialists is to check what professional bodies they’re members of. Ideally, you’ll want to identify a provider with accreditation from bodies such as UKAS and BSE, to ensure that they take regulatory compliance seriously. 

After all, you don’t just need assistance with practical measures; you also need to make sure that your approach is compliant with the applicable legal structures governing your niche. 

Provision of appropriate services

While in some cases, you might just want to get some general advice, in most cases you’ll need a water hygiene specialist in order to help you with a specific issue. That might be assistance in developing a water safety plan, advice on how to navigate certain regulatory frameworks, or risk assessments for specific issues such as Legionella. 

In general, it’s best to choose an option that provides a relatively wide range of water hygiene related services. You might just need help with your water safety plan at the moment, but it’s entirely possible that you’ll need assistance in other areas further down the line, and it’s most convenient to continue using the same provider.


Once you’ve identified an accredited water hygiene specialist that provides the right range of services, it’s worth checking the reviews. This will help you to get a picture of the kind of service you can actually expect to receive, based on real feedback from other companies in similar situations to yours. If the provider you’re looking at doesn’t have any reviews, it’s worth taking a step back and questioning why that might be the case.

Customer service

Lastly, it’s important that you work with a water hygiene specialist that provides excellent customerservice. It can be confusing working out what kinds of services you need, and working with a provider who can guide you through the overall process can make things a lot easier. 

In addition to checking reviews to see what other clients have to say, you can also get a good idea about customer service just by speaking with the company. Give them a call, ask a few questions about the service, and then take it from there.

Exactly what it is you look for in a water hygiene specialist might change a bit from case to case. That being said, the points listed above should be applicable to most businesses, regardless of your niche or exposure to water-related risks.
