Your Local Oxfordshire Water Hygiene and Legionella Experts
If you own or operate a commercial property, you must conduct routine water risk assessments in order to comply with the 1974 Health and Safety Act, which includes Legionella assessments. As a result, a Legionella risk assessment is highly recommended to protect your tenants or employees from disease.
In buildings where water is stored or recirculated, there is a high risk of dangerous Legionella and related bacteria growing. Legionella bacteria can cause a variety of serious illnesses, including Legionnaires' disease, a life-threatening type of pneumonia that affects people of all ages. People over 45, smokers, heavy drinkers, and those with underlying disorders or compromised immune systems are especially vulnerable, which is why it's critical to conduct Legionella risk assessments in your property on a regular basis.

Legionella risk assessments
We test all tenants, employees, and visitors as part of our Legionella risk assessments to see if they pose an infection risk. We conduct a complete on-site survey to inspect all water sources and determine the level of risk. Temperature testing is needed in all areas where water is stored or recirculated, as certain temperatures make harmful bacteria more susceptible to growth. Any additional risk-control activities and interventions, such as remote monitoring and the implementation of maintenance and preventative procedures in accordance with official health and safety guidelines, are fully stated. We'll also give you a review date so that risk assessments are done on a regular basis for your safety.
Our team can carry out extra preventative work if needed to maintain essential water hygiene standards and reduce threats to health.
Legionella prevention is an essential and legal part of your property owner obligations, so if you require a Legionella risk assessment, contact GES Water to book one today.
