Legionella Water Testing

Both hot and cold water systems can succumb to legionella bacteria, the cause of Legionnaire’s Disease. You need to ensure your water systems are up-to-code and as safe as possible to stop Legionella growth, ensuring HSE compliance and the safety of the people. Our team of Legionella water testing experts can help you and your business in a variety of ways to ensure safety, compliance and ongoing monitoring as well as business training.

Legionella regulations can be complex, and potential risk areas aren’t always easy to spot. Because of this, your business has a legal responsibility to ensure that legionella risk is assessed by a qualified and experienced specialist.

Our team of legionella experts work closely with businesses to help them keep their premises safe. With a mix of infrastructure improvements, easy-to-follow processes and awareness training, Total Water Solutions can provide the confidence that your business is fully compliant with its legal responsibilities.

You’ll have a clear picture of what steps your business needs to take to be fully compliant, and provide a safe environment for your employees, tenants, or customers. Get in Touch with us today and leave your contact details so one of our team can call you back.

Legionella: Risk Assessments

In order to protect your employees and building users from the threat of legionella – and your business from the risk of prosecution – it is essential for every workplace to conduct a legionella risk assessment.

A legionella risk assessment involves testing the water infrastructure of your premises to ensure the conditions that encourage the growth of legionella are eliminated. A thorough risk assessment will include:

  • Inspection of your pipes and water outlets, looking for environments where legionella can thrive.
  • A full schematic of your building showing all outlets and hot and cold systems.
  • Thorough investigation of any cooling towers, evaporative condensers or any element of your operations that could lead to aerosol formation.
  • We tailor our risk assessments to your building and your business’s specific water use, whether it’s used in manufacturing, healthcare, housing, leisure or office environments.

As stated by HSE, building owners, landlords and employers have a legal obligation to ensure that this risk assessment is undertaken by someone with sufficient expertise, knowledge and experience. As members of the Legionella Control Association, our team has years of experience, know exactly what they’re looking for, and are committed to high standards of service and professionalism.

Following your legionella risk assessment, we can advise on any steps that need to be taken, whether that’s remedial work on your pipework or outlets, or advice on monitoring and documentation.

Legionella: Remedial Work and Improvements

Your legionella risk assessment may highlight areas in which your business needs to alter its water network. Our services include being able to carry out any recommended works for you. With our years of experience, we know exactly what needs to be done to ensure that your premises have minimal risk of legionella build up.

Works may include removing dead-leg pipes, replacing or resizing water storage tanks, disinfecting water tanks or removing a build-up of rust, sludge or other bacteria-friendly matter in your network.

We will work with you to ensure that any remedial work will be carried out with minimal disruption to your day to day operations. We provide all materials, tools and machinery required, and can arrange a time to carry out the work, whether that’s during out of hours, at weekends or during periods of low activity to ensure Legionella control.

Our straightforward, tailored approach means that your business will be brought to compliance with minimal effort on your part. Once your remedial work is completed, the Total Water Solutions teams can advise on the ongoing management of Legionella prevention.

Legionella Management: Remote Temperature Sensing

Temperature monitoring is extremely important in controlling Legionella bacteria growth in your water system. You will often hear experts stating “keep the cold, cold and the hot, hot” as this creates an environment in which the bacteria will struggle to grow, and that’s exactly what you want.

Rather than a technician visit your site to test the water temperature with a legionella testing kit, we offer Remote Temperature Sensing (RTS). We install discrete sensors on your assets which intelligently monitor the temperature. They then send this information securely to our portal where you can view the data, be alerted to a non-compliance and create reports for your stakeholders, ensuring your Legionella water testing is at the right standard.

Remote Temperature Sensing is fully compliant with HSE and HSG guidance and has the benefits of being less time consuming, less distracting to employees in your business and more importantly wasting fuel in travelling, which contributes to carbon in the environment.

Legionella: Bespoke Training for Your Business

It’s really important that you and your team have a general awareness of Legionella, so you can understand your responsibilities and the risk associated with managing water systems within buildings. But what if you want something a little more specific to your business?

Bespoke training includes the general awareness training we offer but we will also spend time understanding your business, how it operates and who does what. Don’t worry if you’re not sure exactly what you need, we will do a gap analysis and guide you on what you need to do to be compliant.

We will also review a Legionella full risk assessment, to see what water assets you have in your building, and then build a training program which covers all the areas of Legionella compliance and deliver it to your team so everyone understands exactly what they should be doing and how to do it.

We normally provide this via Microsoft Teams, so you don’t need to put everyone in a room at the same time, saving on travel from potential multiple locations and no lost time. Of course if you would prefer to do this in person, let us know at the enquiry stage and we will arrange this for you.
