    How We Carry Out Legionella Risk Assessments in Dundee

    We combine thorough administrative checks of current and previous records with a specialist inspection of your site’s water systems, which gives us an accurate measurement of the risk of Legionella bacteria that might be growing. These checks and inspections are completely bespoke and tailored to the individual specifications and requirements of your site.

    A typical assessment will be conducted in the following three steps:

    1. Administrative Checks
      This step includes a full review of previous assessments and current records, as well as consultations with those involved in health and safety on the premises.
    2. A Physical Tour of Your Water System
      Our team of risk assessors will visit your site, performing diligent inspections of its water systems. This step will include water temperature checks using state-of-the-art equipment.
    3. Bespoke Reporting
      We will provide you with a copy of your report in PDF format. This will be complete with detailed information on what we have found and guidance on what you can do to reduce the risk of Legionella bacteria growing on your site. This management regulatory compliance system can help you to gather, keep, analyse, and communicate Health, Safety, and Environmental compliance whenever they are needed.

    Why You Need a Legionella Risk Assessment

    Why You Need a Legionella Risk Assessment

    Legionella bacteria can grow in any kind of purpose-built water system (for example, a water tank, a shower, or a swimming pool). Small water droplets from these systems may become infected with the bacteria. When droplets are inhaled by an occupant of a building, there is a risk of them catching a serious disease. This includes Legionnaires’ disease, a potentially fatal form of pneumonia.

    All hot and cold water systems that grow sediment, scale, or any other type of bacteria, have the potential to become a feeding ground. If the water’s temperature is consistently between 20°C and 45°C, this creates perfect conditions for the bacteria to thrive and spread. Combining this with an aerosol release increases the risk of exposure to Legionella bacteria, and therefore the risk of developing potentially fatal diseases.

    When to Get a Legionella Risk Assessment

    Legionella risk assessments are a legal obligation, under the terms of the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974. This is because exposure to the bacteria is so dangerous, and these risk assessments and testing methods are essential for preventing the risk of exposure.

    You are legally required to arrange for Legionella risk assessments in Dundee if you are:

    • A duty holder
    • An employer
    • In control of premises
    • A person with a health and safety responsibility

    When to Get a Legionella Risk Assessment

    There is a chance that Legionella bacteria will grow and spread wherever water is stored in a building. This is a risk that applies to all hot and cold water systems, so regular testing and risk assessments of your water system are vital.

    We highly recommend getting a risk assessment carried out right away 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 a risk assessment for Legionella

    Who Can Carry Out a Legionella Risk Assessment?

    Legionella testing and Legionella risk assessments must be carried out by a competent person, meeting the Health and Safety Executive’s Approved Code of Practice and the related technical guidance found in HSG274. 

    Some businesses will also provide Legionella testing kits, but the only way to ensure complete accuracy when carrying out this type of work is to use the advanced technology that we utilise in our assessments.
