    What is Legionella and Where is the Risk?

    Legionella bacteria is a type of bacteria that can spread in water systems and cause Legionnaires’ disease, a severe and potentially fatal form of pneumonia, when inhaled in droplets. Water systems that are typically at high risk of Legionella include:

    • Spa pools, hot tubs and swimming pools
    • Dental apparatus
    • Showers
    • Healthcare properties
    • Vehicle cleaning machines
    • Food manufacturing sites
    • Washing facilities
    • Industrial facilities like manufacturing sites

    In these water systems, regular assessments and monitoring are crucial for safeguarding occupants’ and employees’ health.

    After a facility has an initial Legionella risk assessment to identify potential water system hazards, implementing regular Legionella monitoring is the critical next component of establishing an effective risk control scheme. It enables the early identification of any Legionella hazards before they escalate into bigger risks.

    The frequency of monitoring required depends on the findings of a site’s Legionella risk assessment. For sites with complex water systems, monthly monitoring is often recommended, while lower-risk sites may only require quarterly or biannual visits.

    Guardian Hygiene Services provides fully customised Legionella monitoring programmes tailored to each client’s specific risk profile and needs, ensuring you only pay for what you need.

    Our Legionella Monitoring and Reporting Process

    At each scheduled visit, our engineers will conduct a full inspection following a custom protocol based on the risk assessment and prior results. This includes:

    • Checking water temperatures
    • Quality measurements
    • Equipment function 
    • Collecting new water samples for microbial analysis if needed

    Any issues or anomalies detected during monitoring inspections are documented through the web reporting system, including high-priority non-conformances that require immediate notification. After each visit, an automated Legionella monitoring results report is generated and sent to your designated contact.

    The easy-to-understand report summarises any non-conformances found, along with clear recommended corrective actions tailored to your specific water systems and facility. Our compliance team is available to explain details and ensure all remedial measures are implemented properly.

    We utilise an advanced web-based Legionella monitoring and compliance management system called ZetaSafe. This provides us with real-time visibility and control over the monitoring programme.
