Legionella Risk Assessment

Legionnaires disease is a serious lung infection it is usually caught by breathing in small water droplets of contaminated water. All man made hot and cold water systems are likely to provide an environment where Legionella can grow.

The infection is not contagious and can not be spread from one person to another.

Most landlords can assess the risk themselves and do not need to be professionally trained. However, landlords can arrange for a competent person to carry out the assessment if they wish.

Records of any assessments should be kept and follow up checks need to be carried out periodically, such as when undertaking the annual gas safety check or routine maintenance visits.
