Ensafe expansion of its divisions means we now offer a range of leading legionella services.
From surveys to essential tailored training, Ensafe ensures you are compliant and safe. Legionnaires’ disease is a potentially fatal lung infection caused by legionella bacteria contracted by breathing in small droplets of contaminated water, which can be detected in water systems in organisations and businesses.
Anyone who is an employer or in control of premises has a duty to ensure they understand the health risks associated with legionella.
Duties under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 (HSWA) extend to risks arising from legionella bacteria, which may occur during working practices.
Whether you oversee premises or an employer, you are responsible for the necessary health and safety procedures which should be in place alongside precautions to reduce the risk of exposure to legionella.
It is essential to assess and identify sources of risk, manage those risks and maintain and keep accurate records.
We offer a comprehensive suite of services including Legionella Risk Assessments and certified Legionella Awareness Training courses, which includes:
- What is Legionella? What can it cause and how? Who is susceptible?
