    How Often To Get a Legionella Risk Assessment

    How Often To Get a Legionella Risk Assessment

    Current legislation in Scotland means that Legionella risk assessments are part of the legal duties surrounding health and safety for any of the following:

    • Landlords of a single property or multiple properties
    • Employers
    • Those in control of premises

    You must take precautions against outbreaks of Legionnaires’ disease with regular Legionella risk assessments.

    What Water Systems Are at Risk of Legionella Growth?

    Legionella bacteria can grow in any artificial water system, with the most high-risk systems including:

    • Spa pools
    • Air conditioning units
    • Water tanks
    • Hot tubs
    • Swimming pools
    • Dental apparatus
    • Showers
    • Healthcare Properties
    • Vehicle cleaning machines
    • Food manufacturing sites
    • Washing facilities
    • Industrial facilities like manufacturing sites

    Can Anyone Carry Out a Legionella Risk Assessment?

    A landlord, employer, or person in control of premises must appoint a Responsible Person to take responsibility for managing risks. While you are not legally required to have training, not identifying risks properly and taking the proper precautions may mean you receive a large fine and endanger the safety of occupants.

    This is why the best solution is to employ professional risk assessors who can get the job done right. At Guardian Hygiene Services, all of our technicians are highly trained and fully accredited. We can give you the most thorough assessment of your water systems and help you safeguard them against dangerous bacteria.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      What happens if your systems are non-compliant?

      If your systems are found to be non-compliant with HSE and ACOP L8 guidelines, we will inform you and suggest appropriate action. This may include any of the below:

      • Descaling and disinfecting your water tanks and/or evaporative condensers
      • Replacing faulty thermostatic mixing valves
      • Having our team or risk assessor train you on how to control the risk of Legionella to ensure compliance

      It’s essential that you contact Guardian Hygiene Services if your property displays or has indicated it is non-compliant with HSE regulations to ensure the health and safety of both yourself and your staff is not further jeopardised. Failure to comply puts occupants at risk of contracting Legionnaires’ disease (a form of pneumonia) which can be fatal.
