Your Local Buckinghamshire Water Hygiene and Legionella Experts
If you own or manage a business property, it is a legal requirement to carry out regular water risk assessments in your establishment to comply with the 1974 Health and Safety Act, including Legionella assessments. Therefore, it is strongly advised to organise a Legionella risk assessment to protect your tenants or employees from risk of disease.
There is a high risk of dangerous Legionella and related bacteria growth in buildings where water is stored or recirculated. Legionella bacteria can cause a number of serious diseases including Legionnaires’ disease, a deadly form of pneumonia that can infect people of all ages. People over 45, smokers, heavy drinkers and those with underlying conditions or weakened immune systems are at particularly high risk, which is why it is so important that Legionella risk assessments are regularly carried out in your property.

Legionella risk assessments
As part of our Legionella risk assessments, we evaluate all tenants, staff and visitors to determine if they pose any risk of infection. We provide a full on site survey to inspect all water systems, in order to identify the level of risk present. This includes temperature testing in all areas where water is stored or recirculated, as harmful bacteria are more susceptible to growth in certain temperatures. Any further actions and measures required to control risks are fully reported, including remote monitoring and the implementation of maintenance and preventative practices in line with official health and safety guidelines. We will also supply you with a review date to ensure risk assessments are regularly conducted for your protection.
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.
