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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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
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.
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.
