Legionella bacteria is present in Rotherham as its it around the entire UK. The bacterium Legionella pneumophila and related bacteria are common in natural water sources such as rivers, lakes and reservoirs, but usually in low numbers. They are also present in all forms of purpose-built hot and cold water systems. If conditions are favourable, the bacteria will multiply increasing the risks of Legionnaires’ disease and it is therefore important to control the risks by introducing appropriate measures outlined by the HSE guidance documents HSG 274 and ACoP L8. The main route of infection is through inhalation, by breathing in airborne water droplets that contain Legionella bacteria. The majority of cases or outbreaks of the disease have been via domestic hot and cold water systems, evaporative cooling towers, poorly maintained artificial water systems and spa pools. Vulnerability is heightened for certain groups including; people over 45 years of age, smokers and heavy drinkers, people suffering from chronic respiratory or kidney disease, people suffering from Diabetes, lung and heart disease, anyone with an impaired immune system.
Legionellosis is a collective term for diseases caused by legionella bacteria including the most serious Legionnaires’ disease, as well as the similar but less serious conditions of Pontiac fever and Lochgoilhead fever. Legionnaires’ disease is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia and everyone is susceptible to infection.
It is vital that all premises in Rotherham and across the UK implement the required control methods specific to the type of system and its design on your site, and continuously assess the risk where any changes may occur.
