DESCRIPTION

BS 8580-1:2019


This standard BS 8580-1:2019 Water quality is classified in these ICS categories:
  • 07.100.20 Microbiology of water
  • 13.060.70 Examination of biological properties of water

This British Standard gives recommendations and guidance on Legionella risk assessment relevant to water systems. It is applicable to any undertaking involving a work activity or premises controlled in connection with a trade, business or other undertaking where there is potential for exposure to water or when water is used or stored in circumstances that could cause a reasonably foreseeable risk of infection by Legionella and contracting legionellosis.

This British Standard is applicable to risk assessments being undertaken on premises, plant and systems for the first time. It also covers reviews and reassessments where a previous assessment has been undertaken and where control measures might have been implemented.

While the principles of risk assessment presented in this British Standard can be applied to natural waters, including rivers, lakes, ponds, waterfalls, caves, dew ponds or natural recreational facilities, such as boating lakes, this British Standard does not give specific recommendations for these water sources. This British Standard does not give recommendations for the preparation of the scheme of control for the risk systems identified.

Annex A gives general guidance on the assessment of systems, while Annex B to Annex E give guidance on the assessment of specific types of system. A list of equipment that might be used by a risk assessor is given in Annex F, and Annex G gives guidance on the production of schematic diagrams.

NOTE The guidance in the annexes is not intended to be exhaustive but merely to highlight some of the more common issues associated with particular systems to be considered as part of a Legionella risk assessment. Where appropriate, these annexes contain references to publications that give more detailed information about these systems.
