Legionella Advice

UKAS accredited to ISO 17020 and Assured Advice through a Primary Authority Co-ordinated partnership with the City of London Corporation for our Legionella risk assessments, our market-leading management support combines specialist building services knowledge, together with our own UKAS accredited in-house laboratory, which means we have total control of the process from risk assessment and sampling strategy to presenting our findings to you. This helps factor in accuracy and reliability and factor out error. 

From 1st October 2017, we will also be offering our Legionella risk assessments as Assured Advice through a Primary Authority Co-ordinated partnership with the City of London Corporation. The advice covers “the competence and ability of Assurity Consulting to undertake suitable and sufficient Legionella risk assessments in accordance with the relevant legal requirements.” 

Legionella bacteria is one of those premises issues that can have a dramatic impact on people and the organisation in a very short space of time. You must be sure your Legionella risk assessment, scheme of management, training, and feedback processes are robust and effective. You have to be able to identify the long-term trends, not just the short-term changes. When you can contract out the tasks, but not the responsibility, you have to be able to fully trust what you have in place.

What is Legionnaires' disease?

Legionnaires’ disease is a form of pneumonia, fatal in approximately 12% of cases. The bacterium Legionellapneumophila serogroup 1 is the most common cause of Legionnaires’ disease. It first hit the headlines in 1976 after an outbreak among attendees at an American Legion Convention in Philadelphia, where 221 people were infected, of which 34 died.

Legionnaires’ disease primarily affects people who have increased susceptibility due to predisposing factors, such as age (50 years +), smoking, existing illnesses etc. Men are also three times more susceptible than women. Legionella bacteria infections can only be contracted by the deep inhalation of tiny water droplets, called aerosols, which are contaminated with legionella bacteria. Aerosols can be produced from water systems that create sprays, such as showers, cooling towers, spray taps, decorative fountains and Jacuzzis. Infection by person-to-person contact has not been reported.

Legionella bacteria can pose a real threat to your buildings and the people who work in them.
