This week, it was reported that a Hospital Trust in Southern England had been fined a lot of money plus costs as an outbreak of Legionella had occurred. Hospitals obviously do their best to avoid this sort of thing but it does bring it home to us all that we cannot relax our anti-Legionella tactics and precautions.
Remember that any premises with water systems in place must have anti-Legionella precautions in place. If you have just one shower, then you must ensure that the showerhead is descaled and sanitised on a regular basis. Also, make sure you keep records of this in your water file.
If you want to know more, please contact us.
