Legionella Risk Assessment
Legionnaires’ Disease is a potentially fatal lung disease which can be caught when a person inhales water droplets containing bacteria from items such as air conditioning units. A Legionella Risk Assessment is carried out to identify any potential hazards to avoid this happening…
A Legionella Risk Assessment is carried out in a property to identify both hazards and potential hazards that may result in an individual catching Legionnaires Disease. It can help identify who is at risk from the disease. As part of the assessment, water in the building is tested for legionella and measures can be put into place to minimise any potential risks. In a workplace, how workers may be exposed is identified so measures to reduce their risk can be put in place. As part of COSHH Regulations 2002, employers are required to assess any potential risks so that these can be controlled.
When Asbestos Fighters carry out your risk assessment, we will ensure that it will be carried out in accordance with the current British Standards (BS8580). As part of the assessment, we will carry out the following in line with HSE guidance:
- Identify and summarise potential sources of risk;
- Site/building overview
- Assess any controls in place to manage risks;
- Consider monitoring, inspection and maintenance procedures;
- Record the monitoring results, inspections and checks carried out;
- Arrangement to review the risk assessment regularly
