Do you need a legionella risk assessment?
Legionnaires’ disease is a potentially fatal condition contracted by inhaling small droplets of water containing the legionella bacteria. Certain environmental conditions increase the risk of legionella growth, including water tanks, cooling towers, and water temperatures between 20° and 45° C.
Under UK health and safety law, including the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, every business or person in control of premises is required to carry out a regular legionella risk assessment to identify possible sources of legionella in their building, and take action to control the risk if necessary.
