Legionella Control International Opens New Office In Light Of Increasing London and South East Region Cases

June 9, 2014

Leading legionella risk management company Legionella Control International ( has thrown open the doors of its brand new Kemp House office in a move that correlates with recent statistics indicating that London and the South East are burdened with the nation’s highest number of confirmed cases of Legionnaires' disease.

Serving areas across London and the South East, the new office will offer clients a full range of legionella risk management services and advice on all matters relating to the control, management and prevention of Legionnaires' disease and legionella associated risks.

According to a recent report published by the Health Protection Agency, the South East region reported the highest number of Legionnaires' disease cases between 2009-2011, closely followed by the city of London. With over 25% of all reported cases originating from these two areas, there is still a lot of groundwork to be done when it comes to managing the risks presented by this potentially fatal water borne disease. What better place to start than in those key areas in which the disease is most prevalent? Headed by experienced environmental hygiene professional Rob Boon, the recently opened London office offers the capital the very best in specialist environmental risk management and compliance services encompassing legionella risk management, compliance auditing, expert witness and litigation support, health and safety training, facilities management and more.

Boon says, “As head of the new London premises, I am dedicated to ensuring that London and the South East region receive an unparalleled level of expertise, support and customer service. Legionnaires’ disease is a serious issue in these areas and by basing our new premises in the capital, we hope to empower ourselves with the advantage of locality.”

In the section entitled ‘Prevention and control of legionellosis,’ the report states that the most effective way of combating Legionnaires’ disease is to effectively manage, maintain and regularly test cold and hot water systems for traces of stagnation and colonisation.

The new Legionella Control International office will help organisations across  London and South East regions do just this with its complete range of independent and impartial consulting advice relating to the management, risk control and ongoing surveillance of Legionnaires’ disease.
