What is a legionella risk assessment

Legionella bacteria can be a silent and dangerous presence in water systems, posing serious health risks to occupants. If you are a landlord in Edinburgh, it is essential to understand your legal obligations concerning Legionella risk assessment and take appropriate measures to protect your tenants.

The importance of regular legionella testing

Legionella can lead to Legionnaire’s disease, a severe form of pneumonia. Regular testing and risk assessment are vital for:

  • Detecting the presence of bacteria early.
  • Implementing control measures to prevent growth.
  • Minimizing the risk of exposure to tenants.
  • Meeting legal responsibilities and avoiding penalties.

Legionella risk assessments for landlords

In Edinburgh, landlords are required by law to carry out regular Legionella risk assessments. These evaluations ensure that water systems within rented properties are free from contamination, safeguarding tenants’ health.

There is no legislation as to how often a landlord should conduct an LRA, but there is a legal obligation on landlords to act in a responsible manner. After the initial LRA inspection is carried out it is recommended that yearly reviews are carried out.

Compliance with these regulations is your legal responsibility and prioritises the well-being of those who live or work in your properties.
