What Is Legionella and why is it such a threat?

19 December 2020, The Simon Langton Girls Grammar School in Canterbury ordered to close by the Kent County Council due to Legionella fears.
Two British Holidaymakers die of Legionnaires’ disease after staying at a Bulgarian resort.
Legionella pneumophila is a potentially deadly bacteria found in soil that enters our waterways and is present in our cold water supply feeds to all buildings. It enters at such low levels that it should not be a problem. Even if water looks clean it can still be contaminated. If however the cold and hot water system within the building is not managed to the HSE-ACOP L8 standard, it can quickly become a KILLER.
With hundreds of Legionella cases reported each year across the UK and a number of deaths linked to them, it is vital that building managers, caretakers, facilities staff and responsible persons not only understand but manage the risks as the HSE-CQC and law demand.
If a confirmed case of Legionella presents at a Doctors or Hospital it will be reported (RIDDOR) to the HSE & Health Authorities who will act immediately to investigate where it originated.
Legionella pneumophila is DNA traceable, not only back to the building it came from, but the outlet it came out of.
All staff undertaking L8 monitoring or record keeping or flushing MUST be Legionella Awareness trained.
NOT to comply with the HSE/CQC ACOP-L8, could lead to a court summons and possible prosecution!
