Water Testing for Legionella


Water Hygiene Risk Assessment

Every business in the UK is legally required to perform a water hygiene assessment. This is because water can grow legionella bacteria at temperatures between 20-45 degrees Celsius.

According to the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Acop L8 “control of legionella bacteria in water systems”, employers, building owners and landlords have a legal requirement to conduct legionella and water risk hygiene assessments. In addition to hotels, gyms, retail locations, leisure clubs, offices, warehouses, factories and distribution centres, this applies to a wide range of businesses.
