    Why You Need a Legionella Risk Assessment

    Why You Need a Legionella Risk Assessment

    Legionella bacteria are capable of growing in any purpose-built water system. When a person breathes in water droplets from these systems that are infected with the bacteria, there is a chance that they will catch serious diseases. This includes Legionnaires’ disease, a potentially fatal form of pneumonia.

    All hot and cold water systems that grow sediment, scale, or other types of bacteria could also create a feeding ground for Legionella bacteria. If the water’s temperature is consistently between 20°C and 45°C, the bacteria will thrive and most likely spread. When combined with an aerosol release, this heightens the risk of exposure to Legionella bacteria – and therefore the risk of developing potentially fatal diseases.

    When to Get a Legionella Risk Assessment

    Wherever water is stored in your building, there is a chance that Legionella bacteria can grow and spread. Any hot and cold water system is at risk, so regular testing and risk assessments are vital.

    It’s especially important to get a Legionella risk assessment in Cardiff if:

    • There has been a change in key personnel
    • The building is new to your business or company
    • The building is being repurposed
    • The building has been unused for any amount of time
    • The building has never had testing or a risk assessment for Legionella before
