How to get compliant for Legionella Control

Sport and Leisure Facilities can have complex water systems that include swimming pools, hot tubs and showers. These types of systems must be assessed to ensure that these systems run at the correct water temperatures and that the risk is identified and reduced as practicably possible. Whether it's a sports club with changing rooms or a sports centre with a swimming pool, our Bespoke Legionella Risk Assessments are designed to cover the specific risks related to these types of premises. This then enables you to manage the risk more easily and cost effectively. 

Legionella Compliance within the Sports and Leisure industry doesn't need to be complicated. To achieve compliance and ensure that the water systems are safe, a Legionella Risk Assessment is needed. This will enable you to implement the correct measures to reduce the risks and keep the public safe when they visit your premises. 

There is a reasonably foreseeable Legionella risk in your water system if

  1. Water is stored or re-circulated as part of your system

  2. The water temperature in all or some part of the system is between 20-45°C 

  3. There are sources of nutrients such as rust, sludge, scale and organic matters

  4. The conditions are likely to encourage bacteria to multiply

  5. It is possible for water droplets to be produced and dispersed.

Risk Management

Once the Risk Assessment is completed we can help you implement the necessary measures to ensure the water system remains safe and you remain compliant. Risk Management could include the following:

  • Temperature Monitoring of taps

  • Regular flushing low used taps

  • Cleaning and Descaling taps

  • Removing redundant Pipework

  • Water Testing
