Legionella risk assessments ensure that water systems are thoroughly evaluated, enabling conscientious businesses to devise an effective management strategy.

Conducting legionella risk assessments to prevent microbiological threats is not only good practice, but is a legal requirement across all industries relying on the use of water systems.

The potable water supplies used by oil and gas companies on offshore structures can provide ideal breeding grounds for legionella bacteria, the inhalation of which can have fatal consequences. 

In many regions, it is the responsibility of the organisation in control of the premises to ensure that legionella risk assessments have been completed and international businesses may have the added challenge of navigating and honouring varying regional legislation.

Safeguarding the health of personnel from microbiological threats is a significant responsibility. Leaving people at risk of exposure is a prosecutable offence, regardless of whether any individuals contract Legionnaires’ disease. 

With microbiology specialists and the geographical reach to offer services globally from independent, cutting-edge facilities, we are the ideal partner for your legionella risk assessments.
