Your Local Hertfordshire Water Hygiene and Legionella Experts
Owning or managing a business property comes with legal responsibilities, carrying out a water risk and Legionella assessment schedule in your property is required to comply with the 1974 Health and Safety Act. To protect your tenants or employees from risk of disease it is advisable to organise a Legionella risk assessment, contact us and book your assessment today.
Where water is stored or recirculated there is a risk of Legionella and related bacteria to thrive. These bacteria can cause serious diseases including the deadly form of pneumonia, Legionnaires’ disease. These can infect people of all ages and those with underlying health conditions or weakened immune systems at particular risk.
Carrying out regular Legionella risk assessments and taking appropriate corrective actions will minimise potential water hygiene health related issues.

Legionella risk assessments
Our Legionella risk assessments will provide a full on site survey to inspect all water systems, as well as evaluation of all tenants, staff and visitors in order to identify the level of risk present and if this poses any risk of infection. This includes temperature testing in all areas where water is stored or recirculated, as harmful bacteria are more susceptible to growth in certain temperatures.
Required actions to control the risk are fully reported, including remote monitoring and implementation of maintenance and preventive measures in accordance with official health and safety guidelines. We will also provide you with a review date to ensure that regular risk assessments are conducted to protect you.
Our team can carry out extra preventative work if needed to maintain essential water hygiene standards and reduce threats to health.
