Legionella Risk Assessment

What is  Legionella?

 

Legionella is a bacteria found in water. It is found naturally in low levels in all water systems but it multiplies in stagnant water between 25°C – 45°C. Legionella bacteria can cause Legionnaires’ disease, a potentially fatal form of Pneumonia contracted by inhaling fine water droplets containing high levels of the bacteria. Legionnaires’ disease is very rare and is not contagious.

Why would I need a Legionella risk assessment?

 

Landlords have duties under health & safety law to assess the risk of Legionella and control growth of the bacteria in the hot and cold water systems in their properties. A risk assessment must be carried out by a competent person, who is aware of the risks to health caused by Legionella and the control measures necessary.
