Implementing a Legionella Management Plan is Essential
Ensuring you have a Legionella management plan in place is essential to ensure you’re following standard health and safety guidelines stated by the HSE. AMES Group can help implement a Legionella management plan to ensure your property or site is safe from the threat of Legionella. Managing the risks is essential and failure to do so will increase the risk from Legionella.
You will have to assume responsibility regarding the monitoring and maintenance of your water system(s), this may include regularly flushing the systems during quieter months. Monitoring water temperatures and adjusting settings will also fall into your list of responsibilities, as well as cleaning any shower heads, pipes and other places where Legionella could colonise.
Keeping on top of your Legionella management policy is essential and will eliminate the risk of contamination.

Know Your Responsibilities, Control the Risks
Research has shown that less than 50% of the registered companies within the UK who either own or operate premises are currently non-compliant under legislation relating to the prevention of legionella bacteria.
What the research has not shown is that this is mainly down to knowledge and businesses simply having no idea of their legal obligations. This is partly due to the HSE not enforcing Legionella compliance on a national basis.
If the management of Legionella in water systems is overlooked, it can cause Legionella bacteria to multiply and spread, presenting huge risks to the safety of those living within the property or area.
The Cost of Your Legionella Assessment
Prices for Legionella risk assessments differ depending on a few key factors. The size of the property will be taken into account, as well as the number of water systems running through it. The bigger the property and number of water systems present, the higher the price.
For example, you may be expected to pay around £200 for a small dental practice or cafe. For hotels or large corporate companies with several water systems, you can expect to pay close to £500.

Risk assessment must be performed on every site that has running water systems. Domestic properties are at less of a risk, but we advise that all water systems in both domestic and commercial areas be flushed regularly during quieter months.
