Legionella Management and Control: Watersafe
Legionella pneumophila, the bacteria that causes Legionnaires’ disease, occurs naturally within water and can become a serious risk to health and in some cases even prove fatal.
Rentokil Specialist Hygiene provides a complete Legionella testing and control service for businesses throughout the UK.
Teams of certified Legionella experts are fully aware of all Health and Safety Executive guidelines and provide a complete Legionella risk assessment and control service.
With Legionella being such a common bacteria in water, it is imperative that all businesses effectively control their Legionella Bacterium levels. Failure to do so can lead not only to the outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease, but can seriously damage a company’s reputation.
1. Risk Assessment
Every building should have a suitable and sufficient risk assessment undertaken. In buildings occupied by five or more people the results should be formally recorded and reviewed or updated regularly. Stored water, drinking water, process water, closed systems and cooling towers are all covered by water quality regulations.
Therefore, to safely manage water quality it is vital that these water systems are properly assessed for their water quality risk.
Rentokil Hygiene’s water quality risk assessment will enable customers to choose the correct course of action for ensuring water quality standards meet all water quality regulations.
2. Remedial Works
The company’s trained water quality experts also offer a comprehensive range of remedial services and water safety solutions, which include tank lining, tank replacement, system disinfections and all necessary plumbing alterations for your water system.
3. Ongoing Monitoring
Regulations also require regular monitoring and checks on the systems to ensure that they are operating within the guideline parameters.
The company’s water quality and contamination consultants can provide a reliable and cost-effective water system maintenance service, which will ensure water systems are kept uncontaminated. This includes regular analysis of systems, along with adjustments to the treatment regime.
Rentokil Specialist Hygiene offers an online Legionella Compliance Management tool which provides complete ‘Compliance Overview’ of one or multiple buildings in an ‘Electronic Logbook’ system. The system provides real-time notifications of any non-conformances, management of non-conformances and online Risk Assessments.
