‘Water Hygiene Management - Utilising a BeMS for HTM04-01 compliance’.

Bob Blincowe, Strategic Account Manager – UK Healthcare at Honeywell

Ensuring compliance with HTM04-01 and ACoP L8 is a major requirement for all NHS facilities, this can require the need for a complex and expensive control system. Utilising an existing Building Energy Management System to provide monitoring, alarms, control and feedback for all essential water requirements is not only cost effective from an equipment and installation point of view but is also very efficient in terms of staff utilisation and deployment, as the same engineers that are managing the BeMS can now also manage the water hygiene system.

This presentation covers the link between HTM04-01, HTM07-04 and HTM2005-BMS to show how an existing BeMS system can be fully integrated into the Water Management Plan and operated by the same staff carrying out the monitoring, control and management of the Energy, HVAC and other systems covered by the existing system, providing not only a cohesive WMP but also a single point of contact giving time and efficiency savings for staff and other valuable assets.

Key learning points: utilising existing systems to provide a water management system; ensuring compliance with all relevant HTMs including current and future guidance thinking; ensuring the compatibility between HTM04-01, HTM07-04 and HTM2005-BMS to provide a complete and integrated solution.

Key learning points 

  • An understanding of some of the logic behind the expectations of HTM.04-01
  • Knowledge of the ‘flesh on the bones’ of important new aspects of the guidance
  • How to maximise the value of data
  • Efficient techniques for data acquisition and processing
