Legionella pneumophila bacterium is the most common cause of Legionnaires’ Disease, a type of pneumonia which can be fatal particularly to vulnerable people, often middle-aged and elderly people who smoke, have chest problems or a weakened immune system.

In order to ensure the safety of building occupants it is essential you ensure a Legionella Risk Assessment is undertaken.

Although Legionella is common in nature, it mainly lives in water, and outbreaks occur from water systems in buildings such as cooling towers, evaporative condensers, hot and cold water storage systems, as well as shower heads and whirl pool spas, etc. The bacteria can multiply where water temperature in some or all of the system is between 20 & 46 °C, where water is re-circulated or stored, and where there is rust, sludge, organic matter, biofilms or other sources of nutrients. The greatest risk to humans then comes when there is the possibility of water droplets being produced and dispersed over a wide area, which can be inhaled.

Duty holders have the responsibility to ensure that the risk of exposure to Legionella from work activities and water systems is identified and assessed. They are required by law to use a competent person to carry out regular water system risk assessments.

Our qualified and experienced surveyors can provide you with a Legionella Risk Assessment wherever you are based in the UK. Contact Green Zone Surveys on 0344 499 7574 or email info@greenzonesurveys.com for a quote or more information.
