The Risks of Legionella In Your Water Systems
Legionella, a waterborne bacteria, poses significant health risks when infected water droplets are inhaled. If you have allowed Legionella bacteria to proliferate in your water systems to a dangerous degree, the most serious health risk is an outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease. This form of pneumonia can result in death in vulnerable people.
Any hot or cold water system risks becoming a breeding ground for Legionella bacteria. It favours warm temperatures, stagnation, and bacterial and scale growth to feed on. For this reason, it is essential that you assess your water systems regularly and have proper control measures in place.
Who Is Legally Responsible For Carrying Out Legionella Risk Assessments?
If you are an employer, building manager, or in charge of health and safety for a premises, you must ensure a Legionella risk assessment is carried out.
You must have adequate skill and training to be able to carry one out in line with the Health and Safety Executive’s Approved Code of Practice (ACOP L8) and its accompanying technical guidance (HSG274).
- identifying and assessing all sources of risk in your water system
- managing these risks
- preventing and controlling further risks
- keeping the correct records
If you do not carry out an assessment properly or miss something and cause an outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease, you risk legal action. Employ the services of accredited Legionella professionals to eliminate all dangers and secure the safety of your site.
