Legionella Risk Assessment
Legionnaires’ disease is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia which everyone is susceptible to. 221 people in the UK contracted Legionnaires’ disease in 2013, 34 of whom died.
Any property owner or agent controlling premises, whether residential (in specific circumstances) or workplace properties, has an obligation to ensure that water installations or systems on the premises are free from risk of the Legionella bacteria being present.
C Hanlon are trained to carry out a full Legionella Risk Assessment of your premises in line with The HSE Approved Code of Practice (L8). This risk assessment will identify any potential risk sources, detail means of preventing the risk and also give you an indication of any remedial works required to control the legionella risk.
Water sampling and testing can be carried out where there is an imminent threat of Legionella.
Where Legionella Occurs
Landlords should be especially concerned if a property has been unoccupied for a considerable length of time such as in-between lettings.
In this case Legionella hotspots can occur in pipework dead legs, taps and showers that haven’t been used for a while or areas of a property’s plumbing that are not regularly flushed and where water is left to stagnate.
These are all vulnerable areas where the Legionella bacteria can grow rapidly.
Places at risk from Legionella
- Evaporative condensers
- Cooling towers
- Hot and cold water systems (not usually required for domestic properties)
- Emergency showers
- Eye wash sprays
- Spa pools
- Ornamental fountains
- Air washers

The appearance and manner of your engineers was excellent. They gave me regular and informative updates on the work being carried out and left my property very clean and tidy. Excellent service all round.
