Legionella Risk Assessment

Legionella risk assessment

As a landlord you are required by law to understand the risks associated with legionella and take suitable precautions and actions to assess, prevent or control the associated risks.

The Health and Safety Executive have produced two guides following an Approved Code of Practice:

1 – Legionnaires’ disease: a brief guide for duty holders – http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/indg458.pdf

2 – Legionaires’ disease: The control of legionella bacteria in water systems. http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/priced/l8.pdf

These documents spell out the legal requirements for landlords and managing agents to help them ensure that the tenant’s risk from exposure to legionella from water systems in residential rental property is safely controlled.
