Safeguarding the health and safety of your environment starts with taking proactive steps. At Environmental Inspection, we understand the importance of preventing Legionella contamination within your water systems. Our Legionella risk assessment service empowers you to protect occupants, comply with regulations, and ensure the integrity of your water infrastructure.

Legionella is a type of bacteria commonly found in water systems that can pose serious health risks if not properly managed. Our comprehensive Legionella risk assessment services help you identify potential hazards, evaluate control measures, and ensure compliance with regulatory requirements.

Legionella Bacteria: Safeguarding 

Legionella, the hidden bacteria lurking in water systems, poses a significant risk to human health. Our Legionella risk assessment service is your shield against this silent threat. By comprehensively understanding the behaviour and characteristics of Legionella, we empower you to take proactive measures to safeguard the well-being of occupants.

Sources of Legionella Contamination: Nipping Risks in the Bud

From cooling towers to plumbing systems, Legionella thrives in certain water environments. With our specialised knowledge, we uncover potential sources of Legionella contamination that might otherwise go unnoticed. By addressing these sources early on, we prevent the growth and spread of this harmful bacterium, ensuring your environment remains safe.

Health Risks Mitigated: Legionnaires Assessment

The health risks associated with Legionella exposure are too serious to overlook. Our Legionella risk assessment service is not just about compliance – it’s about prioritising health and safety. By identifying and mitigating potential Legionella hazards, we minimise the risk of severe health issues, protecting individuals with weakened immune systems and everyone who interacts with your water systems.

According to the HSE, it is your responsibility to arrange a reliable legionella risk assessment, and we are here to help.

Legionella Risk Assessment: The Process

At Environmental Inspection, we follow a comprehensive and systematic approach to Legionella risk assessments, ensuring the safety and well-being of your water systems and occupants.

  • Preliminary System Assessment: Our certified experts begin by conducting a preliminary assessment of your water systems to identify potential areas of concern. This step involves evaluating the type of water systems present, their usage, and the potential sources of Legionella contamination.
  • Identifying Potential Hazards and Exposures: We meticulously analyse your water systems to identify any potential hazards or conditions that could contribute to Legionella growth. This includes assessing temperature control, water stagnation, and the presence of biofilms.
  • Evaluating Control Measures: Our team develops tailored control measures to mitigate the risk of Legionella growth. This may involve adjusting water temperatures, implementing disinfection protocols, and ensuring proper system maintenance.
  • Documentation and Reporting: Following the assessment, we provide you with a detailed report outlining our findings, recommendations, and a customised plan for managing Legionella risks. This report serves as a valuable resource for ensuring ongoing Legionella management and compliance.
