What Does Legionella Monitoring Involve?
Legionella monitoring usually comes after a Legionella risk assessment has been completed, which identifies any risk potentials in your water systems. Then, any hazards must be dealt with properly-inputted Legionella remedial works.
Legionella monitoring serves to manage and control risks of Legionella exposure going forwards, ensuring you meet HSE’s Legionella compliance requirements.
It is essential to protect your water systems from the dangers that Legionella bacteria pose.
How We Can Help With Legally Compliant Legionella Monitoring
Guardian Hygiene Services can help you with comprehensive Legionella services. First, our fully-accredited technicians will conduct a thorough assessment to determine what your water systems need.
Legionella Risk Assessment
A Legionella risk assessment consists of physical inspections and administrative reviews to determine the risk of Legionella bacteria in your water systems.
Physical tour of any man-made water system on your premises:
- A physical inspection of the hot and cold water systems in your building
- Inspection of areas where aerosols (tiny water droplets) have the potential to be created
- Water temperature checks and operational checks
- Samples taken for water testing
- A full review of results from any previous assessments
- A full review of your current records
- A consultation with everyone involved in health and safety
- A verification of management procedures and relevant paperwork
- A risk level assessment of people in the building, focussing on the age and health considerations of anyone on site
Your Legionella Monitoring Scheme
Once we have collated the results of your Legionella testing and assessment, we can help you with remedial actions and control measures.
Monitoring includes weekly flushing of outlets, to remove stagnant water that promotes Legionella growth and ensuring regular temperature checks. A full written monitoring scheme from us can include any or all of the below, depending on the severity of what the assessment has found:
- Water treatment
Water treatment may be needed if occupants or visitors of the premises are at higher risk of serious lung infections caused by exposure to Legionella bacteria. It can include copper and silver ionisation, UV radiation, and chlorine dioxide treatments.
- Giving you a clear management structure
This includes the designated duty holder, their communication pathways, their allocated responsibilities, and training on Legionella monitoring and control.
- A detailed schematic of your water systems
We will map out the full layout of your systems, identifying piping routes, storage and header tanks, calorifiers and relevant items like water softeners, filters, strainers, pumps, and water outlets. This is so you know where monitoring points are.
- How to operate your water system correctly
This includes how to control your water temperature to prevent Legionella bacteria from proliferating.
- Remedial action
If your monitoring scheme is not effective, we include control scheme reviews and suggested modifications to make.
- Health and safety information
This includes how to properly handle, use, store, and dispose of chemicals used in any water system treatments and tests.
- Incident Plans
This includes what to do if there is:
- A major plant failure
- An outbreak of Legionellosis or Legionnaires’ disease on your site
- Very high levels of Legionella or repeat positive water analyses for Legionella
