Areas at risk To legionella
The most common question surrounding legionella and the risk of legionnaires disease is are there legionella risks in my workplace?
Any water system (workplace or not), with the right environmental conditions, could be a source for legionella bacteria growth. Your water system is most at risk to legionella bacterial growth if:
- water temperatures between 20-45°C
- creates an aerosol e.g. water outlets such as showers, hand basins and cooling towers
- water storage tanks e.g hot water storage tanks
- your system contains a source of nutrients for the organisms to grow e.g. rust, scale, sludge, organic matter and biofilm.
