The importance of Legionnaires’ disease testing

Legionellosis – also known as Legionnaires’ disease – is an infection caused by various bacteria of the genus Legionella. The disease is transmitted through droplets of water that contains these organisms at high levels. Legionella bacteria grow naturally and can be found in various environmental settings, therefore it is difficult to eradicate them completely or stop them from entering our water systems. Although the disease itself is relatively rare, these bacteria can cause other serious complications such as Pontiac fever and pneumonia. A small concentration of these bacteria is not harmful, but in an encouraging environment, they can reach an ideal temperature and multiply, creating a thick biofilm that sticks to the surface of pipes that contain still water or accommodate slow-moving water.

Legionnaires’ disease testing – our services

At Bison Assist we have developed a comprehensive system for testing Legionella which includes multiple steps. As members of the Legionella Control Association, we will provide accurate results with the help of our highly-qualified technical service teams. By determining the actual source of the infection, it’s possible to make a claim, and if left unidentified and exposed, the source of legionella will continue to be a threat.

Commercial premises in the UK in particular, are required to have an in-house Legionnaires’ disease testing system and they need to show evidence that they are compliant with the current legislation. Bison Assist will test your premises at least once a year, thus reducing the risk of a Legionella infection. Additionally, we will provide a comprehensive and up-to-date plan for preventing the disease with an emphasis on frequent water tests on your premises. Our aim is to reduce any risk by providing detailed records as per the Health and Safety at Work Act.

Health and safety courses with Bison Assist

While some people may roll their eyes at the rules and regulations in the workplace, we often lose sight of the importance of health and safety in protecting millions of workers around the UK. Whatever size business you have, health and safety should always be on your priority list and we at Bison Assist are here to help you with our customised and highly-efficient health and safety courses.

The importance of health and safety courses

It might be quite obvious, but one of the main reasons why health and safety courses and training are important is because it’s mandatory. According to The 1974 Health and Safety at Work Act, all businesses in the UK must implement health and safety regulations which have to be followed thoroughly both by employers and employees. Breaking these laws can lead to severe consequences, including fines and even criminal prosecution.

Another important reason why health and safety training in the workplace is vital, is because workplaces can be hazardous. Whether you work in an office or at a busy construction site, all workplaces come with risks. Hazards such as unsecure equipment as well as trips or falls happen every day, and so training and protocols must be in place to avoid any serious injuries from occurring, not to mention the potential financial costs. Companies who invest in effective health and safety training programmes can reduce their costs more effectively than others. Clear guidelines increase productivity, but will also help you cut down on indirect or unnecessary costs.
