Legionella Monitoring

Employers have a responsibility to comply with the Health & Safety Executives ACoP L8 and HSG 274 part 2. At Safety First, we offer monthly, quarterly, six monthly and yearly monitoring for Legionella. 

Through extensive monitoring, we can:

–  Identify potential risk sources
–  Propose methods for prevention
–  Control, monitor, inspect and maintain water systems
–  Ensure compliance with the ACoP and guidance

Safety First specialises in a range of services aimed at preventing exposure to the Legionella bacteria including Legionella risk assessments, Legionella awareness training, and water sampling.

The Importance of Legionella Monitoring

Legionella bacteria causes Legionellosis, a collection of serious diseases that includes Legionnaires’ disease, Pontiac fever and Lochgoilhead fever. Legionnaire’s disease is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia that can affect anyone – there were 84 deaths in England and Wales from 2011 to 2013.

It is therefore vital that consistent and effective monitoring is undertaken to ensure that employees are not exposed to Legionella bacteria and the potential consequences to both the individual and the business.
