Legionella Risk Assessment

Legionellosis is a collective term for diseases caused by the Legionella bacteria. The most serious being
Legionnaires disease. Legionnaires disease is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia and everyone is
susceptible to infection. The risk increases with age but some people are at higher risk including:

  • Smokers and heavy drinkers
  • People over 45 years of age
  • People suffering from chronic respiratory or lung and heart disease, kidney disease, diabetes or anyone
with an impaired immune system.

If conditions are favourable, the bacteria may grow increasing the risks of legionnaires disease. It is
important to control the risks by introducing measures outlined in Legionnaires disease - The Control of
Legionella bacteria in water systems (Approved Code of Practice and Guidance L8).
