Safety Concepts Ltd can carry out a Legionella risk assessment to ascertain whether your working environment or processes pose a risk of airborne Legionella pneumophila bacteria, and offer advice to minimise risk.
Legionnaires’ disease is caused by the Legionella pneumophila bacteria which is found in water. Inhalation of tiny droplets of water containing the bacteria can lead to serious lung disease which is often fatal.
Areas which may be at risk include air conditioning and heating systems, sprinkler systems, showers, water features, water filtration units, wet-backed spray booths and wet working equipment.
If you are concerned about your or your employee’s exposure, contact us for initial advise or to arrange for the risk assessment.
Properties which have been vacant for some time or which are in buildings with old water systems may be at risk of harbouring legionella pneumophila bacteria. There are simple steps you can take to minimise the risk to your tenants, but your first course of action should be a risk assessment taking into account all relevant factors.
Risk is certainly reduced with new systems, if they have been installed correctly. This does not mean however that you shouldn’t carry out a risk assessment to quantify your risk and ensure that all correct control measures are in place.
