TrainingOUR SERVICE EXPLAINED
Legionella bacteria is commonly found in water. Inhaling airborne water droplets containing legionella bacteria can cause potentially fatal Legionnaires’ disease. Integrated Compliance will help you manage legionella in hot and cold water systems and will work with you to identify and reduce the risks.
All businesses and organisations with public access to their water have a legal duty of care to ensure that a risk assessment is in place to monitor for legionella, a deadly waterborne bacterium. In the event of an outbreak of legionnaires’ disease, the authorities will require evidence of risk assessment, monitoring and maintenance, without this in place organisations will be dealt with most severely by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Failure to meet with the required compliance requirements may result in prosecution and litigation.
Is it necessary to clean and disinfect my water system?
It is important to maintain the cleanliness of your water system. The mechanisms and frequency for doing this will depend on the system you have and whether cleaning or disinfecting is being done routinely or because of a problem identified during monitoring. The frequency and method of routine cleaning and disinfecting should be identified within your risk assessment. This will take account of factors such as whether the system is open or closed, the type and level of contamination, and the population that could be exposed.find out more
