4 steps to Legionella control compliance

If your organisation has one or more of the following in your workplace, you may be at risk of exposure to Legionella:

  • Cooling tower or evaporating condenser
  • Dry/wet cooling systems
  • Hot and cold water systems
  • Spa pools 

As an employer, or similarly if you are a manager of premises (including landlords), it is your responsibility to ensure that the working environment is regularly monitored and maintained and that you take the necessary precautions required by law to reduce the risks associated with legionella. The bacteria found in Legionella can have serious and potentially life threatening effects, especially bacteria that carries Legionnaires’ disease, a potentially fatal form of pneumonia. 

For a number of reasons, some organisations may need to regularly outsource their Legionella Monitoring to a third party to help them to meet their health and safety requirements.
