Legionella Testing: Safeguarding Health and Compliance

At CHG South West, we understand the importance of protecting public health and ensuring compliance with legionella regulations. That’s why we offer comprehensive legionella testing services designed to identify and mitigate the risk of Legionnaires’ disease within your water systems.

Why Test for Legionella?

Legionella bacteria can proliferate in various water systems, including cooling towers, hot water tanks, showers, spas, and other aerosol-producing devices. Inhalation of contaminated water droplets can lead to Legionnaires’ disease, a severe form of pneumonia. Regular legionella testing is crucial to prevent outbreaks and safeguard the well-being of building occupants, employees, and visitors.

Water Sampling and Analysis: Our experienced professionals collect water samples from your water systems using industry-standard protocols. These samples are then carefully analysed in our state-of-the-art laboratory to detect the presence of Legionella bacteria and assess their concentration levels.

Risk Assessment and Management: Our legionella testing services go beyond analysis. We conduct a comprehensive risk assessment of your water systems to identify potential areas of concern and develop an effective management plan. This includes evaluating temperature control measures, system design, maintenance practices, and water treatment protocols.

Compliance with Regulations and Standards: We ensure that your testing protocols align with local regulations and industry standards, such as those provided by health departments, occupational health and safety organizations, and environmental agencies. Our legionella testing services help you meet the necessary requirements and maintain compliance with current legislation.

Expert Consultation and Recommendations: Our knowledgeable team is available to provide expert consultation and guidance based on the results of your legionella testing. We offer recommendations for effective control measures, such as temperature adjustments, disinfection protocols, and system modifications to mitigate the risk of Legionella growth.

Ongoing Monitoring and Maintenance: Legionella risk management is an ongoing process. We offer regular monitoring and maintenance services to ensure that your water systems remain safe and compliant over time. This may include periodic retesting, system inspections, and recommended adjustments based on evolving circumstances or regulatory changes.

With CHG South West as your trusted partner, you can have peace of mind knowing that your legionella testing needs are in capable hands. We prioritise accuracy, efficiency, and professionalism in all our testing procedures, allowing you to focus on the safety and well-being of your occupants.
