The challenge of controlling Legionella: Protecting against Legionnaires' disease
Legionnaires' disease is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia caused by inhaling tiny water droplets or particles contaminated with Legionella bacteria. These bacteria can proliferate in various water systems, creating a significant health risk.
Property owners and building stakeholders must remain vigilant as poorly maintained or managed hot and cold water systems, evaporative cooling systems and spa pools can become breeding grounds for Legionella bacteria, increasing the risk of Legionellosis.
Mitigate Legionella risks for your properties
The initial step in safeguarding against Legionella contamination, protecting public health and supporting compliance with health and safety regulations is to conduct thorough Legionella Risk Assessments. According to The Health & Safety Executive's (HSE) Approved Code of Practice L8 (2013), these assessments are pivotal in mitigating risks and helping property owners and stakeholders reach regulatory compliance.
