Balancing Cost and Safety with Legionella Risk Assessments
Every decision you make for your facility has to balance managing costs effectively and ensuring maximum value in the services utilised. But this doesn’t mean being financially prudent; you are required to make choices that safeguard health and safety while also having to be economically sustainable.
Getting this right is crucial, as it determines both the efficiency of operations and the well-being of those who use the facilities.
At Guardian Hygiene Services, we understand the importance of exercising cost control and offer Legionella risk assessment services that blend cost efficiency with high-value outcomes. Our approach is designed to provide comprehensive yet cost-effective solutions, delivering services that not only fit within your budget but also provide long-term value.

The Challenge of Protecting Assets
Your budget may be tight and expenses may be looked at carefully. Comparing this with the need to maintain facilities that are safe and compliant with health standards may be difficult. It’s especially so in areas like Legionella control, where the cost of neglect can be far greater than the cost of prevention.
You don’t have to look far to find examples of this happening. In 2023 alone, a plastics manufacturing company was fined £50,000 for putting both workers and members of the public at risk, following an outbreak of Legionnaires Disease. The firm was also ordered to pay an extra £11,000 in costs at Birmingham Magistrates’ Court.
The True Cost of Having Legionella Bacteria
The financial impact of a Legionella outbreak isn’t limited to these direct costs, either. There are also long-term repercussions to consider, such as the potential loss of business and damage to reputation. For facilities like hotels and healthcare institutions, an outbreak can erode public trust, leading to a decline in patronage and prolonged revenue loss. These indirect costs can sometimes surpass the immediate expenses of addressing the outbreak.
According to experts, in the USA alone, the lifetime economic burden associated with Legionnaires Disease alone exceeds $800m.
Investing in Legionella Risk Assessments
In this context, the concept of cost versus value takes on a critical significance. Short-term costs, while an important consideration, must be weighed against the long-term value they bring. You cannot simply find the cheapest solution. Instead, you have to be prepared to invest in services that will deliver lasting benefits, both in terms of compliance and safety.
We wholeheartedly believe in the principle of long-term value. Our Legionella control services, while cost-effective, are also an investment in the ongoing safety, efficiency, and reputation of your facilities.
Reducing Penalty Risks
Our commitment to keeping your facilities up-to-date with the latest compliance standards means that you are less likely to face the financial repercussions associated with non-compliance, such as fines and legal penalties. This proactive approach to Legionella control not only ensures the safety and well-being of your facility users but also translates into significant long-term cost savings.
By partnering with us, you’ll be making a strategic choice to protect your facilities with cost-effective, high-value services that pay dividends in the form of safety, compliance, and financial efficiency.
