Why Your Yorkshire Property Needs a Legionella Risk Assessment
A Legionella risk assessment is legally required as part of health and safety regulations surrounding Legionella. If you own a building in Yorkshire or are in control of its premises, or if you are the responsible person for the health and safety in your building, you must ensure that risks of Legionella bacteria are controlled and monitored.
Part of this is ensuring:
- You identify and assess risks of Legionella bacteria growth, spread, and exposure
- Take actions to prevent or control these potential risks
- Keep the correct records
- Carry out any other health and safety duties you may have
It is vital for health and safety reasons and to ensure full legal compliance that a Legionella risk assessment is carried out fully and properly. For this reason, you should get a trained professional to carry out your assessment.
At Guardian Hygiene Services, you can trust our highly trained technicians who have helped countless clients across the country to achieve Legionella compliance with our range of professional Legionella services.
When to Get a Legionella Risk Assessment
Every building or site with any kind of water system must have a policy of Legionella management.
You should get a new Legionella risk assessment regularly, but especially if:
- Your business or company has moved to a new building
- There have been changes in key personnel
- The building is going to be repurposed (e.g. a care home into a hotel)
- The building has been dormant for an amount of time
- Previous assessments have recommended intervention in order to control and monitor identified Legionella risks
- Your building or site has never undergone a Legionella risk assessment before
High-Risk Water Systems Which Commonly Support Legionella Growth
Legionella can be found in any artificial water sources and any recirculated hot and cold water system under the right conditions.
The optimal temperature for Legionella growth is between 25-45 degrees celsius. If the water is in this temperature range and there is any kind of sediment or scale on the source, there is a very high chance that Legionella bacteria will thrive. If the infected water is then released as aerosols, occupants breathing in these droplets are at risk of developing Legionnaire’s disease. This is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia.
Water systems that are at high risk of Legionella bacteria include:
- Spa pools
- Hot tubs
- Swimming pools
- Dental apparatus
- Healthcare Properties
- Vehicle cleaning machines
- Food manufacturing sites
- Washing facilities
- Industrial facilities like manufacturing sites
