Legionella Compliance Services – Assessment and Control

Legionella bacteria are notorious for their ability to thrive in water systems, leading to Legionnaires’ disease, a severe form of pneumonia. For businesses, the presence of legionella in water systems isn’t just a health risk to employees and customers, it’s a potential legal and public relations nightmare. At Hydro-X, we specialise in comprehensive water treatment solutions, including legionella compliance services, to ensure your business is not only safe but also in line with regulatory standards.

Understanding Legionella Compliance

What is Legionella Compliance?

Legionella compliance involves adhering to laws and guidelines set by health and safety regulatory bodies, such as those outlined in ACop L8, to control the risk of legionella. These regulations require businesses to conduct risk assessments, implement control measures, and maintain regular monitoring of their water systems to prevent the growth and spread of legionella bacteria.

Why is Legionella Compliance Crucial for Your Business?

Beyond the obvious health implications, failing to comply with legionella regulations can result in hefty fines, legal action, and damage to your company’s reputation. Ensuring your water systems are legionella-free is not just about compliance; it’s about demonstrating your commitment to safety and health.

Water Treatment Solutions

After we finish assessing the risks, we create a customised plan to tackle any legionella problem in your water systems. Our range of water treatment options includes carefully chosen chemical treatments and advanced UV filtration technology. Each method is selected based on its ability to eliminate legionella bacteria and prevent its recurrence. By tailoring our solutions to fit your specific water systems and how you use them, we make sure they work as well as possible in reducing risks from legionella bacteria.

Regular Monitoring and Maintenance

Vigilance doesn’t stop after the initial risk assessment and treatment. We recognise that ongoing monitoring and maintenance are essential for sustaining legionella compliance in the long term. Control measures can take the form of ongoing maintenance activities such as; flushing of low usage outlets, temperature monitoring, descaling of shower heads and inspecting water tanks and calorifiers. Through proactive maintenance measures, we mitigate potential risks before they escalate, ensuring the continued safety and compliance of your water systems.

Training and Awareness

In addition to our comprehensive legionella risk assessment and water treatment solutions we offer a full range of Legionella training to suit your professional and business needs. With a mix of e-learning solutions to on-site training using one of our highly experienced trainers, we can help bolster your organisation’s readiness to tackle legionella challenges proactively and safeguard the health and safety of occupants.

Compliance Documentation and Support

We understand the importance of documentation in demonstrating compliance. Our team provides comprehensive records of all assessments, treatments, and monitoring activities, along with expert advice to help you navigate the regulatory landscape. The actions taken following a risk assessment should be recorded in a site log book (and kept for 5 years) and the risk assessment should be reviewed regularly to minimise the risk of exposure.

Legionella compliance is a critical aspect of managing a safe and responsible business. By understanding the risks, implementing effective control measures, and partnering with experienced water treatment professionals, you can protect your employees, customers, and your business reputation.

Legionella risk assessments should be reviewed at least every two years or whenever there is a change in the water system or its use.

Any business with a water system can be at risk, but especially those in hospitality, healthcare, and housing sectors.

No business is exempt from the duty to manage legionella risks, regardless of size.
