Legionella Risk Assessments Are a Legal Requirement in Scotland
According to the Health and Safety at Work Act in 1974, a Legionella risk assessment is a legal requirement in the UK. If you are a landlord, employer, property manager, or in any way involved as a duty holder for the health and safety of property in Stirling, you must ensure risks of Legionella bacteria proliferation have been assessed.
Legionella bacteria is dangerous when colonies form in hot and cold water systems under the following circumstances:
- Consistent temperatures of 20-45 degrees Celsius
- Water stagnancy
- The presence of limescale, sediment, and other bacteria for the Legionella to feed on
- Lack of proper Legionella monitoring scheme
Do I Need a Professional Legionella Risk Assessment Provider?
Legionella risk assessments must be conducted in line with the guidelines set out in Government documents ACOP L8 and HSG274. The legislation stipulates that assessments must be completed by a competent person with adequate skill and knowledge.
This involves knowing where to take important water temperature checks, knowing how to check for points of aerosol release, and having the equipment and skill to take samples for Legionella testing.
If you miss anything or do anything wrong, you risk causing outbreaks of Legionnaires’ disease, a potentially fatal form of pneumonia caused by breathing in infected water droplets.
Reduce the risk of outbreaks dramatically by employing trained and trusted technicians at Guardian Hygiene Services.
