Legionella Risk Assessments

Who should have a legionella risk assessment?

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 dictates that every business who has 5 employees or more should have an up-to-date risk assessment to protect their staff, customers and reputation. In the event of an outbreak, if you can’t provide proof of a risk assessment and legionella control, you will be legally responsible.

Legionella is a water-borne bacteria and affects the over 50s, people with existing diseases and poor immune systems. Symptoms are similar to those of pneumonia.
