Comments Off on A Guide to Water Safety Risk Assessment

Clean uncontaminated water flows through the taps of most of our households; we generally have little to fear by way of contamination. However, there is still a need for water to be ‘risk assessed’ for dangerous impurities such as the lethal legionella bacteria that’s responsible for legionnaire’s disease.

  • Most at risk

Water supplies to heavily populated residence and workplaces should be thoroughly risk assessed; an outbreak of legionnaire’s disease would be calamitous.

Wherever there’s a water supply there is always a risk of contamination, through accident or simply bad water management. The risk of a legionella outbreak may not be great but it could potentially prove devastating and extremely costly in terms of wellbeing and/or loss of income.

  • Peace of mind

We want to be reassured that our hospitals, our workplace, our schools and public buildings are safe; indeed we expect the management of such properties toexercise due diligence and provide clean water!

A water safety risk assessment, in the grand scheme of things, will not be expensive.

A specialist water hygiene company will be able to quickly detect and eliminate any signs of a legionella risk and, for that matter, any other lurking harmful pests.

Water risk assessment is a small price to pay for peace of mind.

  • Where to find a specialist water hygiene company

Of course, the internet is the obvious source. The problem is not so much locating a company as finding one with stellar credentials and bags of experience.
