Legionella Health Risks: Symptoms may include high fever, cough, muscle aches, and shortness of breath. In severe cases, it can lead to pneumonia and be fatal.

Legionella Regulations: In the UK, the Health and Safety Executive’s Approved Code of Practice, L8, provides guidelines for the control of Legionella bacteria in water systems. Compliance with these regulations is mandatory for organisations to ensure public health and safety.

Preventive Measures: Regularly carrying out a Legionnaires water test is part of a broader risk management strategy to prevent Legionella contamination.
Implementing preventive measures, such as temperature control, water treatment, and system maintenance, is essential to minimise the risk.

Legionella is a bacteria, which can cause a pneumonia-like disease called “Legionnaires’ Disease”. Legionnaires’ Disease is fatal in approximately 10% of people infected. Infection occurs when the bacteria is inhaled from aerosols of contaminated water. Aerosols can be produced anywhere water is splashed or sprayed, but some of the most common sources associated with Legionnaires’ Disease are cooling towers and showers.

There is a duty of care in the UK to perform routine analysis of water samples for the presence of Legionella, a group of organisms that cause pneumonia like illnesses particularly in those that are elderly or immunocompromised. Arranging a UKAS Accredited laboratory analysis for Legionella is very easy and our service includes everything required to carry out this analysis. Results available within 10 days.
