Landlords of residential accommodation have responsibilities for combating Legionnaires Disease. Health and safety legislation requires that landlords must carry out a risk assessment for
the Legionella bacteria which cause Legionnaires’ disease and thereafter maintain control
measures to minimise risk.
Allinonesurveys prepare risk assessments for all residential properties. For further information please visit : http://www.hse.gov.uk/legionnaires/legionella-landlords-responsibilities.htm
Legionella bacteria are found in the natural environment and may contaminate and grow in water systems, including domestic hot & cold water systems. They survive low temperatures and thrive in temperatures between 20 - 45ºC. They are killed by high
temperatures at 60ºC and above.
