LEGIONELLA RISK ASSESSMENTS
Legionella are ubiquitous in the environment, so when conditions are optimal for growth any aerosolisation of the water could lead to exposure. Favourable conditions are associated with factors such as environmental temperatures between 25 and 65⁰C, stagnant water and bio-films.
Stagnancy may result from low water flow within reticulated water systems having "dead-legs" from the main ring, or a storage tank.
OHMS Hygiene are able to provide advice and sample for mould and bacteria, which includes:
- the correct sampling methodologies to ascertain the problem;
- the interpretation of biological results and reporting in a clear manner; and
- pragmatic advice on the management and control of identified issues
Where water networks do not form part of scheme water the owner/operator of the water network must ensure that the water is potable.
