Reminder for businesses to check water systems to prevent risk of legionella

Cheshire West and Chester 27/07/2021

There is an increased risk of Legionella bacteria

Cheshire West and Chester Council are advising businesses to make sure they check their water supplies and water management processes due to an increased risk of Legionella bacteria being present as a result of water systems not being used while premises have been closed during the recent lockdown.

Employers, the self-employed and people in control of premises, such as landlords, have a duty to protect people by identifying and controlling risks associated with legionella.

If your building was closed or has had reduced occupancy during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, water system stagnation can occur due to lack of use, increasing the risks of Legionnaires' disease.
