Current legislation and guidance states it is a requirement to document, manage and control the risk of Legionella exposure.
Risk assessments are formal, written documents that need to be carried out on hot and cold and cooling water systems. A risk assessment looks in detail at the water system and identifies all of the potential Legionella risks that are present or foreseeable. From the Legionella risk assessment a control scheme must be developed to ensure that all the risks identified are managed as efficiently as possible in order to reduce the level of risk within the system. Specific weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual tasks must be completed and recorded.
