    Why Do I Need a Legionella Risk Assessment?

    Legionella bacteria is a harmful type of bacteria that grows in natural water sources and purpose-made water systems. When conditions allow the bacteria to grow and spread in artificial hot and cold water systems, it presents a significant danger to all occupants or workers of the building.

    When tiny water droplets with large counts of the bacteria are released via aerosol and breathed in, severe lung infections can follow. The most serious of these is Legionnaires’ disease, a potentially fatal form of pneumonia.

    If you are a duty holder or in any way in charge of the health and safety of a building or premises, you must ensure you take measures to reduce and manage the risks involved.

    Can Anyone Carry Out a Legionella Risk Assessment?

    A competent person with adequate skill and knowledge must carry out Legionella risk assessments. The Government has set out guidelines and requirements in their documents  ACOP L8 and HSG274.

    You must be confident you know your water system well, can identify where aerosol release may happen, and know how and where to take water temperature checks. If you miss something or do not get accurate readings, you risk endangering workers and occupants of your building. 

    Legionella risk assessments are best left to the professionals. All of our technicians are highly trained, experienced, and accredited by industry associations. Ensure peace of mind by employing our trusted services.
