Legionella Risk Assessement

Water

Water safety compliance 

All UK businesses have a legal obligation to deliver safe, wholesome water to protect people in their workplace from the dangers posed by legionella bacteria and other waterborne pathogens. 

 

Controlling legionella is essential as the bacterium causes Legionnaires’ disease, a potentially fatal form of pneumonia. 

 

Outbreaks of Legionnaires’ occur from exposure to legionella where water quality is poorly maintained, allowing it to grow to dangerous levels, contaminating man-made water systems including hot and cold water systems, cooling towers, evaporative condensers, spas, and pools.
