Why would you need your property to be legionella tested?
Legionella disease is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia which can be contracted by inhaling small droplets of water have been contaminated by Legionella bacteria.
So why do you as a business owner need to carry out regular water tests? Under UK health and safety law, including the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, every business or person in control of premises is required to carry out a regular legionella risk assessment to identify possible sources of legionella in the building, and take action to control the risk if necessary.
