Are you a manufacturing or engineering company relying on plant machinery for everyday operations? Do you use water and water vapour to keep machinery cool? This is how Legionnaire’s disease is contracted if the water is not safe.
Legionella testing for manufacturers and engineering firms using water and water spray as part of operations is essential.
Industries have an obligation to ensure they comply with water safety regulations and the Approved Code of Practice (ACoP) L8 as imposed by the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974.
The importance of Legionella testing for manufacturers and engineering firms
Legionella poses a health risk to people wherever there’s water and water spray present. Cleaning facilities, water tanks, drinking water, and process water are all instances where Legionella testing is needed to regulate Legionella bacteria and keep it at a safe level.
Maintaining water regulation and compliance
Monitoring and maintaining water safety is a continuous process. The correct safety measures need to be assessed by a trained engineer and regularly re-evaluated.
The process to compliance starts with a site survey by our water safety engineer. Alongside Legionella risk assessments, they may recommend other services such as cleaning and disinfection, ventilation services, chemical supply and Legionella monitoring.
