Keep the development, proliferation and spread of Legionella bacteria under control in your HVAC and water systems to protect human health. We prepare Legionella risk assessment documents in compliance with the applicable regulations.
Every system has different configurations and characteristics resulting in different levels of risk of exposure to contamination. For this reason, all our work follows a dedicated custom protocol, based on the configuration and area of intervention.
In all industries, from food to pharma, it is necessary to prepare a Legionella risk assessment document and implement health surveillance protocols for the HVAC and water systems to maintain adequate hygiene conditions in order to guarantee worker health.
In the healthcare sector, where there are people with weakened immune systems, it is particularly important to monitor HVAC and water systems in order to contain any development and spread of Legionella.
In commercial areas and indoor sports centres, where high densities of people frequently congregate, it is essential to set up health surveillance protocols for the HVAC and water systems to protect the health of people and workers.
All types of accommodation facilities, whether large or small, have the obligation to prepare a Legionella risk assessment document for their HVAC and water systems and implement health surveillance protocols in order to keep the development, proliferation and spread of Legionella bacteria in check, to protect the health of both guests and staff.
The type and extent of HVAC and water systems on board cruise ships, cargo ships, ferries, yachts, mega-yachts, offshore platforms and military vessels necessitate particular care in terms of compliance with the protocols required by the applicable regulatory framework in order to keep the development, proliferation and spread of Legionella bacteria in check.
WHY USE THIS SERVICE
The development and proliferation of Legionella bacteria is facilitated by the temperatures and conditions often found in HVAC and water systems. Application of the provisions of the applicable regulatory framework allows Legionella to be kept in check, protecting against negative events, poor publicity, and civil and criminal liability.
The 2015 Italian Legionella guidelines provide a national pathway to be followed in order to prevent the development, proliferation and spread of Legionella bacteria in HVAC and water systems. Legionella risk assessment documents and health surveillance are essential and the foundation of the applicable regulatory framework.
Pontiac Fever and Legionnaires Disease are serious infections which can affect humans, causing severe symptoms in the worst case scenario. The bacteria are transmitted via the respiratory system, through aerosols or micro-inhalation of contaminated water.
In water systems with a water temperature of around 20°C, the danger of the development and proliferation of the bacterium increases exponentially. Biofilms, sediments, limescale and various encrustations, combined with favourable temperature conditions, form the natural habitat for the development, proliferation and spread of the bacterium.
We can prepare Legionella risk assessments and implement health surveillance protocols involving sampling and analysis by accredited laboratories, and perform Legionella shock treatments, as well as implementing continuous treatments where necessary.
Preventive data acquisition and analysis, as well as planning and interference management allow response times to be reduced and the cleaned and sanitised systems to be rapidly returned to use with the minimum financial and operational impact for our customers.
The treated systems and cleaned areas are immediately returned ready for use.
Proper system maintenance allows:
Prevention and maintenance protect you from civil and criminal liability in the case of unexpected events.
Constantly maintaining proper hygiene conditions in the system guarantees the protection of human health.
We issue certifications and documents which certify compliance with the provisions of the applicable regulatory framework.
All cleaning and disinfection is performed following an inspection by our specialist, certified technicians. Contact us to check the hygiene and performance level of your systems, and book a free initial inspection. We will prepare your personalised prevention and maintenance plan.
