Legionella Risk Assessment

Identify and mitigate risk with Legionella risk assessments from Safety First

What is a Legionella risk assessment?

The aim of a Legionella risk assessment is to identify potential risk sources and propose subsequent methods for prevention, control, monitoring, inspection and maintenance in order to reduce the likelihood of serious health complaints.

Where is Legionella found?

Legionella likes to live in freshwater environments like lakes and streams, but the legionella bacteria that causes Legionnaires’ disease can easily become a concern when it makes its way into building water and air filtering systems. If your business premises have these water/airsystems you may need a Legionella risk assessment.

What conditions do Legionella grow in?

  • Water systems from 6 to 60 degrees
  • Warm, motionless water systems with low levels of oxygen
  • Pipe and tank surfaces, rubber and other natural fibres found in washers and seals, water heaters, hot water tanks and in pipes and showers
  • water distribution systems needed for large buildings like hotels and hospitals
