Water Hygiene: Legionella and non-domestic (communal) schemes - This information is relevant to customers who live in flats with a shared communal entrance / facility
Legionnaires’ disease is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia which can affect anyone. It is caused by the inhalation of small water droplets from contaminated sources containing legionella bacteria.
To ensure your safety and, as a landlord, to comply with current legislation, regulation and codes of practice, we must take suitable precautions to prevent or control the risk of exposure to legionella.
We do this by having a robust water hygiene safety and inspection process in place; by carrying out risk assessments and regular reinspections; and by a having a written scheme of control in place to reduce and/or control, as far as is reasonably practicable, the risk of legionella growth and proliferation of legionella bacteria, for communal areas where there are water systems present i.e. communal water storage systems.
LYHA is committed to making available schemes of control to our customers to let you know how the risk of exposure to legionella bacteria is being managed and controlled.
