Legionella Logbook – Managing the Risks from Legionella Bacteria

Legionella Logbook - Managing the Risks from Legionella BacteriaFor landlords and business owners, there is a requirement to assess whether or not any risks are present in relation to Legionella bacteria and Legionnaires’ disease from their water systems. In some cases, the risks may be minimal and no steps may need to be taken to deal with them. However, even if this is the case, a legionella risk assessment should always be undertaken. Proper records should also be kept to prove what has been done and how the situation is being managed – and all this is usually recorded in a legionella logbook.

Paper records and legionella logbooks

Traditionally, legionella monitoring and control records such as these have been kept in a paper-based Legionella log book. This is fair enough, but there is always a danger something could happen to the logbook itself. If a fire or flood were to occur, the records would be gone in one fell swoop, leaving whoever is in charge of risk management without any records at all.
