Legionella Risk Assessment
What is Legionnaires Disease?
If conditions are favorable the bacterium may grow creating conditions in which the risk from legionnaires’ disease is increased. It is therefore important to control the risks by introducing measures outlined in the Approved Code of Practice & Guidance document.
Do I need to identify and manage the risks presented by legionnaires disease?
As an employer, or person in control of premises, you must appoint someone competent to help you meet your health and safety duties and to take responsibility for controlling any identified risk from exposure to legionella bacteria. A competent person, often known as the responsible person, is someone with sufficient authority, competence, necessary skills, knowledge of the system, and experience.
