As part of our legionella risk assessment in Yorkshire, it will ensure that you are aware of the risk present and what action, if any, needs to be taken.

WATER RISK ASSESSMENT IN YORKSHIRE
The definition of Legionella: the bacterium which causes legionnaires’ disease, thriving in air conditioning and central heating systems within the legionella temperature range.
Legionnaires’ is a lung infection caused by inhaling water droplets from diverse water systems.
As it is all around the UK, Legionella bacteria is present in Yorkshire. The bacteria, i.e. Legionella pneumophila and related bacteria, are prevalent in natural-water sources such as rivers, lakes and reservoirs but usually in low numbers. They are present in purpose-built water systems such as cooling towers, evaporative condensers, hot and cold water systems and spa pools, where human contact is more likely and where there is an increased risk.
If conditions are conducive, the bacteria may grow, escalating the potential risk for Legionnaires’ related disease. Therefore, it is essential to control the risks by introducing appropriate measures outlined by the HSE guidance documents HSG 274 and ACoP L8. The main route for infection is through inhalation, breathing in Legionella bacteria airborne water droplets. Most disease outbreaks have been via domestic water systems, evaporative cooling towers, poorly maintained artificial water systems and spa pools.
Vulnerability is more so for certain groups, including those 45 years or older, smokers and heavy drinkers, and people suffering from Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. People who have Diabetes, kidney disease, lung, heart disease and with a weak immune system are also vulnerable.
