Legionella risk assessments

An experienced consultant will visit your site to identify sources of Legionella risk. You'll then receive a step-by-step plan to clear or minimise bacteria - and a custom monitoring schedule to keep new growth in check. Our risk assessments follow the L8 approved code of practice to cover your key Legionella concerns.

Water temperature

Legionella bacteria thrives in water between 20-45°C. Your consultant checks your entire system to uncover potential problem areas.

Storage and tank set-up

Systems that store or re-circulate water boost the chance of Legionella build-up. We recommend cost-effective controls and alternatives.

Overall water conditions

Legionella needs nutrients to survive. We look for and eliminate the sediment, rust and micro-organisms that feed and fuel bacterial growth.

Vulnerable staff and visitors

Legionella can affect anyone, but certain habits and health conditions heighten the dangers. We help you pinpoint and protect your risk groups.
