Your Local Northamptonshire Water Hygiene and Legionella Experts
You have regulatory responsibilities if you own or operate a commercial building under the 1974 Health and Safety Act to conduct water safety and a Legionella assessment schedule. To protect your tenants or employees from disease, you should conduct a Legionella risk assessment.
Book an appointment with us today to arrange your assessment.
Legionella and similar bacteria can live in water that has been stored or recirculated. These bacteria may cause serious illnesses, such as Legionnaire's disease, a fatal form of pneumonia. People of all ages may be infected, but those with chronic health conditions or weakened immune systems are particularly susceptible.
Regular Legionella risk assessments and prompt corrective action will help to reduce the risk of water-related health problems.

Legionella risk assessments
Our Legionella risk assessments will include a full on-site review of all water supplies, as well as an audit of all residents, employees and visitors to ascertain the level of risk present and whether or not contamination is a risk. Temperature control is required in all environments where water is treated or recirculated, as certain temperatures make hazardous bacteria more susceptible to growth. Required risk-control measures, such as remote monitoring and the implementation of maintenance and preventive measures in accordance with the Official Health and Safety Guidelines, are fully stated. We will also send you a summary date so that we can run regular risk checks 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.
