Legionella Risk Assessment for Schools

Protect Your Students And Staff With Expert Legionella Testing For Your School

The safety of your students and staff is your number one priority. That’s why it’s so important your school’s water system is regularly assessed for signs of Legionella.

Legionella is a potentially deadly bacteria that can grow and multiply in a building’s water system. If a person breathes in tiny water droplets containing the bacteria, they could become infected with a serious type of pneumonia called Legionnaires’ disease. Legionella bacteria can also cause a less serious illness called Pontiac fever.

Legionella testing is a legal requirement for all businesses and institutions. To learn more, view our page on legionella testing and risk assessment.

Why Do Schools Need Legionella Testing And Risk Assessment?

Your school’s water boilers and water systems should be tested regularly to ensure your students and teachers are not exposed to any harmful bacteria.

High-risk water systems include:

  • Hot and cold water systems
  • Safety showers and sprinklers
  • Fountains and water features
  • Spray humidifiers, misters, air washers, and wet scrubbers
  • Equipment that produces moist air (e.g. air conditioning units)

Should any concerns with your school’s water system arise, you can be rest assured that we will be on the scene as soon as possible to ensure your systems are safe for use.
