Are all legionella risk assessments the same?

No!  Not all Legionella Risk assessments are the same. There are areas of the Legionella risk assessment process that are generic across many reports, however, a Risk Assessment Report should be site specific as buildings and water systems always differ in design and usage. Being site specific allows you to manage this process efficiently with the ability to have an overall view of the risks within your portfolio, whilst focusing specifically on an individual building or system.

But don’t worry, IWS Water Hygiene can help you!
