    How We Help Prevent Legionnaires’ Disease in Bournemouth

    The most straightforward way for us to prevent Legionnaires’ disease in Bournemouth is through our Legionella risk assessments. These are a combination of administrative checks of current and previous records and a thorough inspection of a site’s water systems. 

    This allows us to get an accurate measurement of the risk of Legionella for that particular site. The assessment itself is completely bespoke, meaning that when yours is completed it will be tailored to the needs of your site.

    Below, we have provided a breakdown of how a typical Legionella risk assessment would be carried out for your property in Bournemouth:

    1. Administrative Checks
      This step includes a full review of previous assessments and current records, as well as consultations with individuals involved in health and safety on the premises.
    1. A Physical Tour of the Property’s Water Systems
      Our technicians will tour the site, performing inspections of all water systems. This will include water temperature checks using the most advanced equipment.
    2. Bespoke Reporting
      A report will be provided in PDF format, complete with a comprehensive breakdown of our findings and how to implement any remedial actions we recommend. This management regulatory compliance system can help gather, keep, analyse, and communicate Health, Safety, and Environmental compliance records whenever these are required.

    Why You Need a Legionella Risk Assessment

    When to Get a Legionella Risk Assessment

    Wherever water is stored in your building, there is a chance that Legionella bacteria will grow and spread. Regular testing and risk assessments are vital to prevent this. 

    We would recommend risk assessments to all, but it is especially important to have one carried out if:

    • There has been a change in key personnel
    • The building is new to your business or company
    • The building is being repurposed
    • The building has been unused for any amount of time
    • The building has never had testing or a risk assessment for Legionella
    When to Get a Legionella Risk Assessment

    Any type of purpose-built water system runs the risk of developing Legionella bacteria if it is not carefully checked and maintained. Some of the most common water systems that suffer from this bacteria growth include:

    • Spa pools
    • Air conditioning units
    • Water tanks
    • Hot tubs and jacuzzis
    • Swimming pools
    • Dental apparatus
    • Showers
    • Healthcare environments
    • Vehicle cleaning machines
    • Food manufacturing sites
    • Washing facilities
    • Industrial facilities, such as manufacturing sites

    Who Can Carry Out a Legionella Risk Assessment?

    Legionella testing and risk assessments must always be carried out by a competent person, meeting the Health and Safety Executive’s Approved Code of Practice and the relevant technical guidance found in HSG274.

    Some businesses also provide Legionella testing kits, but we would advise caution when using these. This is because they will not be as accurate as the state-of-the-art technology utilised in our professional assessments.
