    The Dangers of Legionella: Why Your Property Needs a Risk Assessment

    Legionella is a waterborne bacteria that can cause severe respiratory illnesses when breathed in by humans. The most severe illness is Legionnaires’ disease, a potentially fatal form of pneumonia. 

    Those particularly at-risk are:

    • Anyone over the age of 45
    • Those with existing medical conditions
    • Anyone with an impaired immune system
    • Heavy smokers and drinkers

    If you do not take the necessary precautions against Legionella proliferation in your water systems, it’s not just the health and safety of all occupants of and visitors to your site that you risk. If an outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease can be traced back to your water systems and there is no evidence that you assessed and controlled the risks, you face legal action and the closure of your business or properties.

    To avoid legal action and prevent illness – and even death – you need a Legionella risk assessment. At Guardian Hygiene Services, we have helped countless companies become Legionella-compliant with our expert services.
