Legionella Risk Assessment

Health and safety of workers at the workplace is of utmost importance. Legionnaires’ disease, a  lung infection (pneumonia) is one of the risks to the workers’ health. The risk of catching Legionnaires’ disease maybe small compared to other life threatening pneumonias or other daily hazards but it should be addressed with as much urgency and seriousness.

The source of the infection could be any system that generates an aerosol including cooling towers, air conditioning humidifiers, spa baths, showers, irrigation systems to name but a few. It is a legal requirement within UK to have a legionella risk assessment of all water systems.
