Protection against legionellosis

What is Legionellosis ? - Click to find out

Legionellosis is a collective term for diseases caused by legionella bacteria including the most serious legionnaires’ disease, as well as the similar but less serious conditions of Pontiac fever and Lochgoilhead fever. Legionnaires’ disease is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia and everyone is susceptible to infection. The risk increases with age, but some people are at higher risk, eg people over 45, smokers and heavy drinkers, people suffering from chronic respiratory or kidney disease, diabetes, lung and heart disease or anyone with an impaired immune system.

Legionella bacteria are widespread in natural water systems, eg rivers and ponds. However, the conditions are rarely conducive for people to catch the disease from these sources. Outbreaks of the illness occur from exposure to legionella growing in purpose-built systems where water is maintained at a temperature high enough to encourage growth, eg cooling towers, evaporative condensers, hot and cold water systems and spa pools used in all sorts of premises (work and domestic).

Legionnaires’ disease is normally contracted by inhaling small droplets of water (aerosols), suspended in the air, containing the bacteria.

GET CHECKED - OR RUN THE RISK OF PROSECUTION

The consequences of not having an assessment can be devastating. The cost of having an assessment through TWC represents excellent value and provides you with peace of mind that your water treatment is compliant.

LEGIONNAIRE'S DISEASE - HEALTHY CUSTOMERS, COMPLIANT CLIENTS

In their Code of Practice (L8) and HSG 274, The Health and Safety Executive insist that any business using or storing water needs to be assessed for exposure to the Legionalla bacteria.

DUTY OF CARE

In Legionnaires Disease: the control of legionella bacteria in water systems’, and associated HSG 274s, the HSE states that businesses, trades or companies have a duty of care to undertake a formal and correct risk assessment to check their exposure to Legionella. More specifically, to check for their occupants’ level of risk. There are many high-profile cases that prove how the consequences of non-compliance can be fatal as seen here.
