What does the law require from me?

Under the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974, all landlords (which includes private sector landlords, local authorities, housing associations & hostels) must ensure that tenants are not exposed to health and safety risks. The Control of Substances Hazardopus to Health Regulations 2002 states that to accomplish this, risk must be identified and assessed for hazardous substances including biological agents (such as Legionella). The L8 Approved Code of Practice has stipulated that all landlords should carry out Legionella risk assessments since its publication in 2001.

What else can I do to help prevent Legionnaires Disease?

The Health & Safety Executive advises landlords (or anyone interested in reducing the risk of Legionella growth in their water systems) to carry out the following simple measures:

  • Flush through the water system
  • Ensure that the system is sealed from the outside so debris cannot get in; for example check the lid tightness of cold water tanks.
  • Remove any redundant pipework (often referred to as 'dead legs').
  • Ensure that water is stored at temperatures inhabitable to Legionella (cold water should be below 20 degrees celsius and hot water should be above 50 degrees celsius; ideally set to 60).
