Sports and leisure

Did you know all sports and leisure facilities new or old have a responsibility under health and safety law to carry out risk assessments for Legionnaire’s disease?

Health clubs, gyms, swimming baths, holiday parks, sports centres, hotels, golf clubs and stadiums will all have fixtures that could give rise to sprays or aerosols containing Legionella bacteria. Examples of these include:

showers and taps
communal showers and toilet blocks
spa baths, whirlpool
Baths and hot tubs
Turkish baths and saunas
ornamental fountains
humidified food displays
cooling towers and evaporative condensers used for air conditioning
hot and cold water systems including storage tanks and cisterns
swimming pools
sprinkler systems for lawns, playing fields and parks

Sports and leisure facilities are often used on a seasonal basis and will have periods of low water usage which can significantly increase the risk of exposure to Legionella bacteria.

Hot tubs are known to be effective mechanisms for spreading Legionella infection. The correct management of spa pools is vital and they should be cleaned and disinfected regularly to prevent the spread of infections.
