Legionella Risk Assessment

A businessman thought a decorative fountain would be a great addition for the lobby area of his restaurant. However, maintenance was not the highest priority, it was not maintained properly.

Unfortunately, it spawned a Legionella outbreak, many of the customers fell ill. The news spread in the community and press. After investigation Legionella from the fountain was identified as source.

Weeks later, after cleaning, disinfection, the restaurant re-opened, but the damage was done, the customers didn't return, the business closed.

Legionella Risk Assessor

Kelcroft's Legionella risk assessment is methodical engineering risk assessment for your building, campus, or entire site.

History has taught us that Prevention is better, and cheaper than cure.

After a Legionella outbreak it is too late, the damage is done, and like so many others firms, it is unlikely that your business will recover.

There are some problems that history does not forget, and causing a Legionella outbreak is one of those issues.
