Control of Legionella

1st September 2022

Advice on Control of Legionella has been updated and now includes additional information about risk assessment and control measures to assist practices going forward with their own risk assessment and procedures.

Notable additions include:

  • What the risk assessment should include and competence required to carry it out
  • What the written control scheme should include
  • Responsibilities within the practice
  • The need for an action plan to follow if there is a concern about legionella
  • Review of the risk assessment and written control scheme
  • A legionella policy and procedures templateto assist with documentation

The Chief Dental Office (Scotland) has issued a letterwhich outlines the context of legionella control requirements.
