Legionella consultancy, testing and risk assessment
Legionella is a water-borne bacteria which can cause Legionnaires Disease. This serious respiratory infection can lead to pneumonia and can have a fatality rate as high as 10%.
It is most commonly caused by inhaling water droplets from a contaminated source. Poor temperature management, stagnant water and ageing pipework can all provide a breeding ground for legionella bacteria. At Busters Group, we are specialists in all aspects of water hygiene.
We can help you to prevent legionella build-up, identify risks and remain compliant with all standard regulations. If you need a legionella risk assessment or in-depth water survey, we can help. Get in touch today to find out more about our legionella consultancy services for Birmingham and the surrounding areas.
Experts in water hygiene risk assessment
As part of the Busters Group, we have access to a team of water hygiene experts. Through proper risk assessment and management, you can ensure that your water supply is safe and reduce the risk of a Legionnaires Disease outbreak. We have experience working in high-risk areas, with complex systems, and with vulnerable residents and building users.
All work carried out by Busters Group is in line with the following regulations:
- Risk assessments for Legionella Control – BS8580 Water Quality
- Health and Safety Work Act 1974
- Private Water Supply Regulations 1991
- Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002
- Water Supply and Quality Regulations 2000
Who is responsible for water testing?
If you are a landlord or owner of business premises, you are responsible for ensuring the water supply is safe. To protect your tenants or workers, you have a legal obligation to minimise the risk of an outbreak of Legionnaires Disease from legionella bacteria. If you fail in your duty to carry out a risk assessment, you could face criminal prosecution or civil proceedings. That’s why Birmingham residents trust Busters Group to keep their water supply safe and compliant.Find out more
How does legionella testing work?
We can carry out testing of your water supply and fittings to ensure everything is safe and compliant. Samples are taken from key points in your water supply to test for the presence of legionella bacteria. We will also test the temperature at key points to identify areas of risk. We can then provide a report of our findings, recommendations and photographic evidence for your records.
