    How Our Legionella Risk Assessments Work

    A Legionella risk assessment from us will provide you with a thorough review of your hot and cold water systems and written records. Our accredited engineers are stationed throughout the country, meaning they can get to your Southampton premises fast.

    Your assessment will consist of:

    • A physical inspection of your water supply, including water tanks and piping, identifying areas with risk of aerosol release and assessing all water hygiene
    • Water temperature checks with approved UKAS calibrated thermometer test kits
    • A review of your paperwork, including records of previous Legionella risk assessments if applicable
    • Verification of health and safety procedures and current Legionella management
    • Consultations with duty holders and anyone in charge of the premises
    • Risk level assessments of occupants or workers of the premises, considering age and health factors

    What Happens Next

    After the assessment is completed, we compile test results and collate all findings together in one, simple report. This sets everything out easily and simply, so you have a full picture of your hot and cold water systems and know exactly how to control the risk of Legionella bacteria proliferation. 

    You’ll get transparent quotes for any remedial actions and control measures that you need to undertake. You can then choose to employ our full range of Legionella services:

    Assessing the water systems of any premises for risks of Legionella growth and spread is a legal requirement. Assessments must be undertaken in line with Government guidelines, set out in ACOP L8 and HSG274.

    High-Risk Water Systems That Support Legionella Growth

    Legionella bacteria is able to grow in any artificial water system. It can thrive under the right conditions, feeding on scale, sediment, and other bacteria and spreading in warm temperatures. 

    When tiny water droplets with large amounts of Legionella bacteria are released by aerosol, like when taps splash, and are then breathed in, it can lead to serious lung infections. The most dangerous is Legionnaires’ disease, a sometimes fatal form of pneumonia. 

    Legionella most commonly grows in the following:

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