An outbreak of Legionnaire’s disease can be costly in terms of people’s health, negative PR and the risk of liability claims. Businesses, landlords and building managers have a duty of care to their employees, clients and visitors to ensure that the risk of an outbreak of Legionnaire’s disease is controlled.
Legionella testing serves to avoid potential outbreaks of Legionnaire’s disease which in some cases can be fatal. Periodic Legionella testing ensures that water and air conditioning systems remain healthy and free from the bacteria which causes this and other diseases. Regular testing will also highlight any potential risks before an outbreak occurs.
