Legionella Risk Assessments in Glasgow

Legionnaires’ disease can be incredibly dangerous and sometimes fatal, so it’s important for landlords to do everything they can to ensure their tenants are not at risk. It’s up to landlords to arrange legionella risk assessments in Scotland, and at Integrated Compliance, we offer comprehensive legionella testing for landlords and businesses.

Preventing Legionnaires’ disease

Though rare, Legionnaires’ disease is caused when someone inhales small droplets of water that have been contaminated by Legionella bacteria, and this means all man-made hot and cold water systems can potentially pose a risk. In order for Legionella bacteria to grow, the water temperature must be between 20 and 45 degrees celsius, and there need to be impurities such as rust or limescale which the bacteria can feed on. In some rare cases, contaminated showers, spas and sprinkler systems have been known to cause Legionnaires’ disease.

Arrange a legionella test in Scotland

It’s essential that landlords do everything legally required of them to ensure their tenants’ safety, including performing a Legionella risk assessment to identify any potential places where the bacteria might grow. At Integrated Compliance, our experienced team can perform a full range of tests to ensure that there is no risk of Legionnaire’s disease in your property, and this is particularly important if the property has been vacant for some time.
