High Temperature Protection Surveys

Meeting the requirements of HSE SIM7 advisory document

Overheat protection equipment is designed to prevent excess temperature in domestic hot water systems therefore helping to protect people from the risk of scalding. By Valveforce surveying the high limit control systems on an annual basis this will ensure the correct operation at the desired set point to prevent excess temperature.

Regular checking gives you reassurance that you have protected your patients, employees, visitors and other building occupants against the risk of burns injuries.

Detailed scope contains:

  • Inspection to ensure systems are correctly installed and set up
  • Testing can be carried out irrespective of whether the hot water systems are in operation
  • Tested in accordance with manufacturer's recommendations by experienced and technically competent survey engineers using calibrated instrumentation
  • Identification of inoperable equipment
  • Labelling on each unit providing a visual confirmation of test date and a calibration seal
  • Test certification provides written proof of the last test date and all relevant test data
  • A full written report detailing survey findings and recommendations
  • An independent survey to validate your overheat protection devices


  • Identification of Health and Safety risks
  • Does not interfere with operation of the hot water systems
  • Assists in becoming part of your written scheme as part of your duty of care
  • Total peace of mind that your high limit safeguards have been tested by qualified and experienced engineers
  • Remedial work is carried out straight away, eliminating any risk immediately
  • Our survey provides a record of all devices on site and assists with spares stock holdings
  • Helps minimise downtime and frees up limited resource for other systems
