Legionella Risk Assessments For Dental Practices

AMES Legionella risk assessments including dentistry equipment as this is the only part of the surgery which involves the release of an aerosol.  (As inhaling contaminated water droplets is necessary for a person to contract Legionnaires disease).

At AMES we understand that many general dental practitioners are unhappy with the introduction of the HSE guidelines regarding Legionella and HTM 01-05.  Many have expressed concern at the potential disruption to their practices and have expressed their belief that risk levels are negligible on social media and industry forums.  However, the aerosol nature of  dental equipment makes these assessments essential, nevertheless.  Other healthcare related businesses, for example a care home has received a fine of several thousand pounds due to having inadequate risk assessments, highlighting the commercial and public safety necessity of having legionella risk assessments of a suitable standard and thoroughness.
