Managing Legionella – Prevention And Protection

If you are an employer or person in control of premises, you have a legal responsibility to identify and manage any risk of Legionella contamination. For effective monitoring a reliable thermometer kit is essential.

Legionella, like many bacteria, thrive at certain water temperatures and therefore, a wide range of workplaces are at risk where artificial water systems exist. A reliable monitoring process should be in place anywhere where water is stored and circulated around a building for example; local authorities, large businesses, schools and universities, hospitals and nursing/care homes, housing associations, landlords and hoteliers.

ETI’s Legionnaires’ Temperature Monitoring Kit has been specifically designed to monitor the temperature of both standing water and the surface temperature of pipes and tanks that form part of the water system. Each kit contains a Therma 1 thermometer, three probes – penetration, surface and a PTFE wire, a tub of Probe-Wipes and a water- resistant countdown timer, all housed in a robust ABS carrying case.

The Legionnaires’ Temperature Monitoring Kit is available priced at £137.50 plus VAT direct from www.etiltd.com.
