    Why You Need a Legionella Risk Assessment

    How We Carry Out Our Legionella Risk Assessments

    So what is a Legionella risk assessment

    It’s a technical review of current administrative records and findings from previous assessments as well as a physical inspection of your water management systems.

    • Map out your water systems, identifying risks and weaknesses and any points with potential for aerosol release

    • Consult with everyone involved in health and safety on your premises
    • Verify your current management procedures
    • Verify your paperwork
    • Assess the risk level of people who live or work in the building, with a focus on age and health considerations
    When to Get a Legionella Risk Assessment

    Are Legionella Risk Assessments a Legal Requirement in Preston?

    If you are a business owner, employer, or are in any way in charge of health and safety on a premises, you are legally required to ensure a Legionella risk assessment is carried out. Not everyone is qualified to carry out proper Legionella risk assessments. They must be completed to the guidelines set out in ACOP L8 and HSG274 and the correct records must be kept.

    What Happens If You Don’t Get A Legionella Risk Assessment?

    Not only do you risk a large fine if a Legionella risk assessment has not been carried out properly, but you also risk the health and safety of workers and occupants of your premises. Exposure to Legionella bacteria via aerosol release can lead to the development of serious lung infections. The most serious of these is Legionnaires’ disease, a form of pneumonia that can lead to death in some cases.

    Under the right conditions, Legionella bacteria growth can proliferate in any water system. It’s most common in the following:

    • Showers and taps
    • Spa facilities and swimming pools
    • Water tanks
    • Air conditioning units
    • Healthcare properties
    • Dental apparatus
    • Food manufacturing sites
    • Washing facilities
    • Industrial facilities
