The Government has announced that its advice to work from home has been removed in England, and people should speak to their employers about returning to the office.
The guidance to work remotely was reintroduced on December 8th, so for nearly two months offices may have had greatly reduced occupancy or even been fully closed. In conditions like this, water system stagnation can occur, leading to the proliferation of legionella bacteria and increasing the risk of Legionnaires’ disease.
After the 2020 lockdown, the Chartered Institute for Environmental Health (CIEH) published new advice on legionella for business, saying it was vital that additional controls were put in place before any water systems were used again. These included flushing, raising the water temperature, microbiological sampling, and disinfection.
We can provide expert support on all measures needed to protect your employees against legionella. So if you want to be sure that you are reopening safely, please contact our Water Hygiene team on:
