Stacey Surveys Ltd
Stacey Surveys Ltd, working with Landlords and letting agents in South Wales to help comply with HSE legislation on controlling the risks associated with the water-borne bacteria, Legionella.
Legionellosis is a collective term for diseases caused by legionella bacteria including the most serious legionnaires’ disease, as well as the similar but less serious conditions of Pontiac fever and Lochgoilhead fever.
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, eg people over 45, smokers and heavy drinkers, people suffering from chronic respiratory or kidney disease, diabetes, lung and heart disease or anyone with an impaired immune system.
Landlords of residential accommodation have responsibilities for combating Legionnaires ‘ disease. Health and safety legislation requires that landlords carry out risk assessments for the Legionella bacteria which cause Legionnaires ‘ disease and thereafter maintain control measures to minimise the risk. Most rented premises will be low risk but it is important that risk assessments are carried out and control measures introduced
We can carry out risk assessments on properties in South Wales to help reduce the risk of legionella.
