Legionella Monitoring

Safety First Group Stand: 3/F56

Employers have a responsibility to comply with the Health & Safety Executives ACoP L8 and HSG 274 part 1,2 & 3. At Safety First, we offer weekly, monthly, quarterly, six monthly and yearly monitoring for Legionella. 

Any water system, with the right environmental conditions, could be a source for legionella bacteria growth. Common sectors include hospitality, spas, hot tubs, landlord empty properties and healthcare facilities.

There is a reasonably foreseeable legionella risk if your water system:

  • has a water temperature between 20–45 °C
  • creates and/or spreads breathable droplets, eg aerosol created by a cooling tower, or water outlets
  • stores and/or re-circulates water
  • likely to contain a source of nutrients for the organism to grow, eg rust, sludge, scale, organic matter and biofilms.

To pre-empt any rapid escalation of Legionella bacteria growth which would undoubtedly affect your business, your properties or your tenants, then act today to ensure you are covered.

Through extensive monitoring, we can:

  • Identify potential risk sources
  • Propose methods for prevention
  • Control, monitor, inspect and maintain water systems
  • Ensure compliance with the ACoP and guidance
  • Monthly temperature monitoring
  • Showerhead cleaning and descaling
  • CWST and down services cleaning & disinfection to BS8558
  • Thermostatic mixing valve safety testing and servicing

The Importance of Legionella Monitoring

Legionella bacteria causes Legionellosis, a collection of serious diseases that includes Legionnaires’ disease, Pontiac fever and Lochgoilhead fever. Legionnaire’s disease is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia that can affect anyone – there were 84 deaths in England and Wales from 2011 to 2013.

It is therefore vital that consistent and effective monitoring is undertaken to ensure that employees are not exposed to Legionella bacteria and the potential consequences to both the individual and the business.
