    Is Your Industry at High Risk from Legionella?

    Understanding the risks of Legionella in your industry is the first step towards effective management and prevention. Certain sectors are more susceptible to these risks due to the nature of their water systems and the populations they serve. Industries commonly at high risk include:

    • Healthcare: Hospitals and care homes often have intricate water systems and vulnerable patient populations.
    • Hospitality: Hotels, resorts, and spas are known for their luxurious water features—pools, hot tubs, fountains—which require proper maintenance to prevent Legionella risks.
    • Manufacturing: Factories frequently use cooling towers in their processes, which can become breeding grounds for Legionella bacteria if not regularly inspected and cleaned.
    • Education: Institutions like schools and universities present Legionella risks, given their complex plumbing systems, gym showers, and science labs.
    • Sports Facilities – Changing rooms, pools, and hydrotherapy areas require frequent checks to remain Legionella-free.
    • Retail – Large retail centres with water features, public restrooms, and food courts should not overlook Legionella management.

    If your business operates within these sectors, it’s crucial to stay ahead of Legionella risks. Our comprehensive Legionella services include regular risk assessments designed to identify and address vulnerabilities in your water systems. By doing so, we can help you manage these challenges effectively, creating a safer environment for both your employees and clientele.

    Legionella Risk Assessments

    Our Legionella Risk Assessment is a two-fold process, combining both administrative and physical checks to thoroughly evaluate your current Legionella prevention measures. If you’re unsure what Legionella services you need, this assessment will be your first port of call.

    Key Features

    • Administrative Legionella Checks: Review of past and current records, consultation with those responsible for bacteria control, verification of management procedures, and a targeted risk assessment of individuals on site, factoring in age and health.
    • Site Tour: Physical inspection of your building’s water systems and any aerosol-generating areas to identify potential hazards.

    You’ll then gain access to our cutting-edge compliance system for monthly water checks, designed to streamline your health, safety, and environmental record-keeping.

    Why Choose This Service?

    It’s not just about ticking regulatory boxes; it’s about creating a safer space for everyone.

    Legionella Water Sampling

    We provide comprehensive Legionella testing services for hot and cold water systems for a range of commercial and residential clients. Our expert technicians collect water samples from high-risk areas in your facility, like storage tanks and seldom-used outlets. These samples are then sent to a UKAS-accredited lab for detailed analysis.

    Should elevated Legionella levels be detected, immediate action is coordinated for site remediation. This focused testing not only checks for Legionella but also screens for other hazardous organisms.

    Disinfection of Hot and Cold Water Systems

    Our Legionella disinfection services use stabilised silver hydrogen peroxide for effective treatment with minimal site disruption. Performed by accredited technicians, our treatments encompass mains, storage tanks, hot water systems, and key fixtures like combination heaters and showers. We provide water sampling, temperature checks, and certification for your records.

    Our nationwide team of skilled technicians specialises in both minor adjustments and major technical works to ensure safety and compliance. Discover how our services can meet your Legionella management needs today.
