    Nursery School Legionella Test

    This test is specifically for Nursery Schools to analyse the hot water for the presence of legionella bacteria (see Note 1 below). It will be tested at one of our UKAS accredited laboratories.

    Depending on the product you choose, the pack we send out to you will contain 1 or more sterile bottles and full instructions on how to take samples.

    Danger Areas

    Nurseries are not generally a high risk for Legionnaires’ disease since they do not normally have more than a one shower on the premises plus younger children are less likely to be included as ‘High Risk’.

    General hygiene, however, is paramount since it is so easy for faecal matter to be transferred from a child’s hand to a tap and then from that tap to other children.

    Any Nursery Assistant helping a child to turn a tap on/off would also carry the faecal contamination which could easily find its way to the kitchen drinking water tap.

    A regular check on the kitchen drinking water tap will highlight if the hygiene regimes are adequate or require review. The inexpensive ‘potable’ test would be sufficient, this consists of:-

    • Total Viable Count at 22°C
    • Total Viable Count at 37°C
    • E.Coli
    • Coliforms
    • Checking for legionella is simple too if you want to ensure your premises are free from this bacteria.
