Legionella Control

Our Legionella Control Services

The impact of Legionella can be huge, so it’s important that projects are aware of effective disease control as part of their project planning and delivery. Legionella bacteria is a risk across many projects and affects both hot and cold water systems. Outbreaks can occur when plumbing lines or mechanical equipment are not tested frequently or adequately, and tests should be carried out as a minimum of every two years unless in a high risk area which requires more frequent tests.

The Critical Path team offers support via Legionella Awareness Training, Legionella Risk Assessments and Water Sampling.

Legionella Awareness Training

Our team can carry out a comprehensive Legionella risk assessment to help identify any potential risks to your workforce and propose suitable methods for prevention, control, monitoring, inspection, and ongoing maintenance of your water systems.

Employers' legal duty is to understand the health risks associated with Legionella and take adequate measures to prevent outbreaks, such as microbiological sampling and Legionella testing.

Legionella bacteria is a risk for almost all buildings' hot and cold-water systems; an outbreak can occur when water in plumbing lines or mechanical equipment is not tested frequently or adequately.

Our team can conduct water sampling tests for different types of microbiological activity.

What is Legionella Bacteria?

A root cause of Legionella outbreaks is generally down to a lack of awareness of the risks and how to control them.

Legionella, also known as Legionnaires' disease, is a severe form of lung inflammation that can lead to pneumonia; Legionella bacteria are naturally found in lakes, groundwater, and rivers and is generally harmless.

Legionella bacteria can rapidly grow and, over time, increase the risk of bacteria exposure in hot and cold-water systems; this can be due to low water flow and rust, eventually causing stagnant water within the water systems.
