Legionnaires Risk Assessments

We are Qualified and Registered to undertake legionella testing and assessments. We carry equipment to test all water outlets and water storage to enable us to check for the presence of legionella bacteria or the risks of exposure to legionnaires disease.

What is Legionnaires Disease?

Legionnaires’ disease is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia caused by the inhalation of small droplets of contaminated water containing Legionella. All man-made hot and cold water systems are likely to provide an environment where Legionella can grow. Where conditions are favourable (ie suitable growth temperature range; water droplets (aerosols) produced and dispersed; water stored and/or recirculated; some ‘food’ for the organism to grow such as rust, sludge, scale, biofilm etc) then the bacteria may multiply thus increasing the risk of exposure. It is a simple fact that the organism will colonise both large and small systems so both require risks to be managed effectively.

The Law

Under general Health and Safety Law, you as persons in control of premises, have Health and Safety duties and need to take suitable precautions to prevent/control the risk of exposure to legionella (Legionnaires’ Disease).

How Much Do We Charge for a Legionnaires Risk Assessment?
