What is Legionella Bacteria?
Legionella is a bacterium that lives in natural water sources but that can also be found in artificial water systems. The largest potential risk of Legionella exposure, which can happen where breathable water droplets are spread, is the development of Legionnaires’ disease. This is a severe and sometimes fatal form of pneumonia.
What is a Legionella Risk Assessment?
Our Legionella risk assessment service involves a detailed technical review of your past evaluations and current records to determine if protective measures against Legionella have been effectively implemented. This comprehensive review encompasses both administrative and physical assessments. We meticulously examine existing documentation and conduct on-site inspections to ensure that all recommended safety protocols are in place and functioning optimally. Our aim is to provide a thorough understanding of your current Legionella prevention strategies, highlighting areas for improvement to enhance safety and compliance.
