How We Carry Out Onsite Legionella Testing
Our onsite Legionella testing comes as part of our comprehensive Legionella risk assessments. Your assessment will consist of a combination of administrative and physical checks on your hot and cold water systems.
A highly-trained technician will inspect each water system, performing temperature checks at vital points. Our water testing is conducted with approved UKAS-calibrated thermometer test kits. These take highly accurate readings to determine if there is a risk of Legionella bacteria proliferation.
These tests, combined with administrative checks and consultations with all those responsible for the health and safety of your premises, help to determine risk factors.
When to Get Onsite Legionella Testing
If you are an employer or a person in control of premises, you are responsible for health and safety. Regular assessments are a vital part of this.
If you do not already have an in-house control scheme, we recommend our monthly water monitoring services. If you already do in-house checks and are sure that you are recording these correctly, we recommend our 6-monthly checks.
If you are a duty holder or facilities manager, you should arrange for a complete review and new assessment in any of the following circumstances:
- There are changes to the water system or its use
- There have been any changes in the use of your building
- There have been any indications that control measures are no longer effective
- System modifications or new construction works have been planned
- There has been a change in key personnel, contractors, or service providers
- A case of Legionnaires’ Disease or Legionellosis associated
