Legionella: Managing in your Business

By | Blog, Industrial Cleaning, Legionella | 7 Comments

Managing Legionella

Many people do not understand the importance on managing Legionella in their business. Whether that is down to ignorance or just lack of knowledge, this article will tell you why managing Legionella should be a high priority in your commercial and industrial business.

What is Legionella?

Legionella is a fatal bacterium that is known to cause Legionellosis/ Legionnaire’s disease. Legionella is commonly found in environments such as natural water sources i.e. rivers or lakes. It can also be found in water systems such as cooling towers, air vents and hot/cold water systems. It multiplies where temperatures are between 20-45 °C.

Legionnaires’ disease got its name from an outbreak back in 1976, which affected 220 people and resulted in 34 deaths. This deadly disease is a severe form of pneumonia, which you can get from inhaling mist from contaminated water.

Who Legionella Affects

Offices, Factories, Hotels and Hospitals are of a higher risk of this disease as you are more exposed to water supplies such as cooling towers, air conditioning units, showers, taps and toilets.

You are more at risk of getting Legionnaires’ disease if you are any of the following:-

  • A smoker
  • Elderly, or aged 45 and over
  • A heavy drinker
  • Suffer from chronic respiratory or kidney disease
  • Are suffering from Cancer
  • Have diabetes

Is a Legionella Risk Assessment a Legal Requirement?

Yes. Although it is not a legal requirement to produce a Legionnaires testing certificate, it is a legal requirement for all places of work, with exposure to Legionella, to carry out a Risk Assessment to determine whether the environment is a safe place to work. When having an external company conduct a risk assessment, it is important to ensure that the company is certified to do so.

How much does a Legionella Risk Assessment cost?

The cost for a risk assessment depends on factors such as the size of a building and the amount of water systems. It should be reviewed at least every two years.

What Ideal Cleaning Services Ltd can do for you

Ideal Cleaning Services is a LCA registered company. We provide a comprehensive range of Legionella control services such as: risk assessments; clean and disinfection services for cooling towers; analytical and inspection services.

If you have any questions regarding Legionella in your business, or would like for us to provide you with our services, then please contact our Industrial Department on 0115 913 2222.
