Your Local Bedfordshire Water Hygiene and Legionella Experts
When you own or manage a commercial building, you have regulatory obligations. For example, the 1974 Health and Safety Act requires you to conduct a Legionella evaluation schedule. A Legionella risk assessment is recommended to protect your tenants or workers from disease. Contact us today to schedule your assessment.
Legionella and similar bacteria can live in water that has been stored or recirculated. These bacteria may cause severe illnesses, such as Legionnaires' disease, a fatal type of pneumonia. People of all ages may be infected, but those with chronic health problems or compromised immune systems are especially vulnerable.
Regular Legionella risk evaluations and prompt corrective measures can help to reduce the risk of water hygiene-related health problems.

Legionella risk assessments
Our Legionella risk evaluations will include a complete on-site inspection of all water sources, as well as an investigation of all residents, employees, and guests to determine the level of risk present and whether or not contamination is a risk. Temperature monitoring is needed in all environments where water is treated or recirculated, as some temperatures make dangerous bacteria more susceptible to growth. Required risk-control measures, such as remote monitoring and the implementation of maintenance and preventive measures in compliance with official health and safety guidelines, are fully stated. We'll also give you a summary date so that we can run routine risk tests to keep you safe.
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.
