Although it is impossible to guarantee that pathogenic micro-organisms such as Legionella will not exist in a water system, through proactive management and effective control programmes it is possible to dramatically reduce the factors that allow those responsible bacteria to proliferate and spread.
Legionella Control International’s (LCI) professional Legionella risk assessments and integrated management programmes are fully compliant with the latest British Standards dealing with Legionella risk assessments, BS 8580:2010 'Water quality - Guide to risk assessments for Legionella control'. Our integrated risk management processes take a holistic approach to the control and management of Legionella and other waterborne pathogens that may exist in water systems. Each comprehensive programme is developed as a working tool on an individual site-specific basis to help evaluate and reduce those health related risks arising from water systems, and to ensure regulatory compliance.
