The Government HSE Guidelines for Welfare at Work stipulate that the law requires you to provide drinking water systems which can be fed from the public water supply as a preference however a secondary supply from bottled water dispensers is acccepted.

The Law states water to be free from contamination and disease where Legionella is a more common bacteria found in public drinking water environments.

The company could be at risk without knowing the full implications of providing water to their staff therefore we have developed a useful questionnnare to ensure you are fully aware and if any modifications are required to the system.

Many buildings need a water management program to reduce the risk for Legionella growing and spreading within their water system and devices. This toolkit is designed to help people understand which buildings and devices need a Legionella water management program to reduce the risk for Legionnaires’ disease, what makes a good program, and how to develop it.

Legionella, the bacterium that causes a type of serious lung infection known as Legionnaires’ disease, grows best in building water systems that are not well maintained. Some water systems in buildings have a higher risk for Legionella growth and spread than others. Legionella water management programs are now an industry standard for large buildings in the United States.


Legionella Risk Assessment for Buildings

Answer the following questions to help assess if your building needs a water management program or if certain devices within the building need a water management program to reduce the risk of Legionella growth and spread.

 

Once the form is submitted we will review and email you with our suggested advice on whether any upgrades are required and if we can benefit your current system in any way.

Remember : The healthier and cleaner your drinking water is the more productive and healthier you feel – especially with added Oxygen

Note: The building standards discussed in CDC’s Legionella Water Management Program toolkit do not apply to single-family or small multiple-family residences (e.g., duplexes), even those with the devices in questions 6 through 8, but residents do need to take steps to protect themselves from waterborne diseases. Homeowners should follow local and state guidelines for household water use, and owners of the devices in questions 6 through 8 should follow the manufacturer’s instructions regarding cleaning, disinfecting, and maintenance.
