Importance of Legionella Risk Assessments - 18.06.2018

Could a Legionella Risk Assessment have prevented a Boldon Legionnaires' outbreak?

Faltec Europe were fined £1.6 million following an outbreak of Legionnaires' Disease at a factory in South Tyneside.

The Legionnaires' virus was identified within cooling towers at the site. 

If an effective Legionella Risk Assessment had been undertaken, with sufficient control measures implemented to manage Legionella, the outbreak may have been prevented.

If you think your business or premises require a Legionella Risk Assessment to ensure compliance and protect your stakeholders, then please get in touch.
