Legionella FAQs

The frequency of legionella risk assessments depends on various factors, such as the type of building, the complexity of the water systems, and the level of risk identified. Generally, it is recommended to conduct a risk assessment at least every two years or whenever significant changes occur in the water systems or building use. However, more frequent assessments may be necessary for high-risk environments like healthcare facilities. 

Any industry with water systems can benefit from legionella and water services. This includes healthcare facilities, hotels, office buildings, schools, manufacturing plants, and more. Essentially, any building or facility with a water supply should prioritise legionella control and water safety.

In the UK, the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations 2002 and the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 requires employers and duty holders to assess and control the risks associated with legionella. This includes conducting regular risk assessments, implementing control measures, and maintaining proper records. 

Legionella is a type of bacteria that can cause a severe form of pneumonia known as Legionnaires’ disease. It thrives in warm, stagnant water and can be transmitted through inhaled water droplets. Legionella poses a significant health risk, especially to individuals with weakened immune systems, respiratory issues, and the elderly.
