What is Legionella?

Legionella is a pathogenic bacterium that can cause the potentially fatal condition Legionnaires disease. While the bacteria naturally occur at low concentrations in aquatic environments likes lakes, ponds, and rivers, it becomes a problem when it enters engineered water systems. Left untreated it can multiply. When water droplets become contaminated with the bacteria and are inhaled into the lungs, humans can contract Legionnaires disease.

Systems that are commonly associated with Legionella contamination include cooling towers, air-conditioning systems and domestic hot and cold-water systems. The systems need to be risk assessed and a control programme established to reduce any identified risk

What is a Legionella Risk Assessment?

A Legionella Risk Assessment should be conducted by a specially trained Legionella Risk Assessor. It will examine the water system at your premises, and will include a thorough review of your management and control processes. If you are an employer, or you control premises or are responsible for the health and safety of others, you'll need to carry out a Legionella risk assessment of the water systems that are under your control.

What are Legionella Remedial Works?

Legionella control is an important part of any building management regime, and requires ongoing monitoring. Your Legionella Risk Assessment will likely provide a list of remedial actions, necessary to improve the design and function of the system, to achieve compliance with the HSE’s ACOP L8, and HSG274 parts 1, 2 & 3. For example; your Legionella risk assessment may identify that you have deadl leg piping on your system or require TMV installation (put links here to their service pages). The Legionella remedial works are usually undertaken as a one off exercise, although you may need further Legionella remedial works in future years if a risk assessment requires it.

Our wide range of remedial works services are delivered by our own highly trained operatives, who have a wealth of experience in the installation and refurbishment of cold-water storage tanks, domestic hot water and cold-water services through to cooling towers and process water systems. Our dedicated and professional team have the capability to provide remedial solutions such as tank replacement, water tank relining, insulation work, pipe work modifications and upgrading systems to meet the requirements of the Water Supply Regulations 1999. All works are based on the requirements of BS 8558:2015 & BS EN 806 parts 1-5.

How often do I need a Legionella risk assessment?

A Legionella risk assessment should be carried out every two years in accordance with ACOP L8.  However, you may need one sooner if there have been changes to your water system or how it is used. You may also need to carry out a Legionella risk assessment sooner if you discover current Legionella control measures are no longer working, the usage of the building has been changed, or new information about Legionella risk control has become protocol.

Why do I need a Legionella Risk Assessment?

Every water system in or associated with a building, whether they're in use or not, need to have a risk assessment carried out. While many people believe the risk of Legionella is reduced if a water system is rarely used, little-used outlets and water systems can often present the highest risk.

After a Legionella risk assessment has taken place, it's likely that some remedial actions may be necessary to bring your water system up to compliance. These remedial actions will likely include modifications to the existing system that help to reduce the risks associated with Legionnaires Disease.
