Legionella Risk Assessment
Commercial businesses are required by law to assess their water systems for Legionella bacteria risks and to protect people from exposure to these risks. Employers should carry out surveys of their plant, systems and equipment and act on recommendations for remedial work that is found to be necessary. Regular reviews of these risk assessments are also required.
Legionella safety risk assessments are required on all water systems, including mains cold water systems, water storage, pumps, pipework, showers and cooling towers.
Our experienced water safety professionals can carry out tests and full risk assessments and advise you on all aspects of your water systems throughout Yorkshire, and help to keep you safe and compliant.
What is a Legionella Risk Assessment?
A Legionella risk assessment is a process of identifying and assessing the Legionella risks in your workplace, so that you can put controls in place to minimise the risks to employees, customers and other people who may be exposed.
As part of a Legionella risk assessment, our experts will first check your previous records and see if there is anything that needs to be acted upon, or that hasn’t been repaired from previous inspections.
We will then carry out a full Legionella risk assessment of your premises, which will involve:
- Checking the water temperature in all outlets.
- Inspecting any storage tanks and Legionella control measures that are in place.
- Carrying out visual inspections of all pipework, showers and other potential Legionella breeding sites or potential breaches of the system.
- Assessing the boiler system or hot water system.
- Evaluating and documenting any issues and risks.
At Robinsons Facilities Services, we can work with you to carry out a full water safety risk assessment, studying your systems and operations to establish a programme of surveys and Legionella control work to ensure you are fully compliant.
We can design a risk assessment program that is sensitive to your ongoing operations in terms of minimising disruption, and we can work with your employees to educate them on findings and ongoing checks. This is all documented and left with you as evidence of compliance and is updated as regular surveys take place.
What Does a Legionella Risk Assessment Cost?
The cost of Legionella risk assessments can vary depending on the size and complexity of your water system, but we offer competitive rates for our services, all while providing a thorough and efficient service.
Legionella Risks and Legal Compliance
Legionella monitoring and risk assessments are a legal obligation for commercial premises. The industry standard dictates that your Legionella risk assessment must be updated at least every two years, but there are circumstances where you may need more regular updates.
If the water system changes, or pipework or system assets are added, then you will need a further Legionella risk assessment carried out. Also, you may need more regular checks if the premises is a place where a lot of vulnerable people are situated, such as a medical facility or a home for the elderly.
A Legionella outbreak can have devastating consequences, so it is important to ensure that you are taking all the necessary steps to minimise Legionella risks in your workplace.
