Why Legionella Risk Assessments Are Needed
Under the Health and Safety at Work Act in 1974, a Legionella risk assessment is a legal requirement in the UK. It is vital you ensure you are taking action to prevent the spread of Legionella bacteria on your premises, whether you are a duty holder, an employer, or in any way involved in health and safety.
Why Is Legionella So Dangerous?
Legionella bacteria is harmful when it is allowed to grow and spread. When tiny water droplets with large counts of the bacteria are released via aerosol and breathed in, it can lead to a number of severe lung infections. The most serious of these is Legionnaires’ disease, a potentially fatal form of pneumonia.
You must play your part in preventing outbreaks of this dangerous disease in Somerset by ensuring adequate Legionella control in your water systems.

Can Anyone Perform a Legionella Risk Assessment?
According to legislation, only a responsible person with adequate competence can undertake the necessary physical and administrative checks of a Legionella risk assessment. You need a good understanding of your water system, its piping routes, and which areas you need to perform tests on for the most accurate results.
If you get it wrong or miss something, you risk the growth and spread of dangerous bacteria. Our experienced technicians have the knowledge and know-how to navigate commercial and domestic water systems efficiently and effectively, giving you the greatest peace of mind.
