With a comprehensive ACOP L8 Legionella risk assessment, a business owner or landlord will have a thorough understanding of their water systems.
A Legionella risk assessment can help to determine whether…
• Water temperature in any parts of a system is between 20–45C
• Whether water is re-circulated or stored in a system
• Organic matter, debris, rust and sludge are present in a water system
• The water system has conditions that encourage bacteria to live and grow
• Whether water droplets or aerosols could be produced and dispersed from the system
With this information, potential sources of risk will be identified and effective measures will be put in place to control or eliminate these risks. Arrangements will then be made to review control measures regularly and results will need to be monitored periodically.
Many people ask L8 Water Hygiene whether or not a risk assessment is required within a system that does not store hot or cold water. The answer is, of course, yes. Even if your system does not store water there are multiple other factors within a water system that potentially enable Legionella bacteria growth.
