Have you been keeping an eye on your water systems? If your water flow has been stagnant for a while, this increases the risk of Legionella bacteria growing. Legionella causes Legionnaires’ disease, a form of pneumonia with a threateningly high mortality rate.
This risk applies to most commercial buildings, not just ones with lots of water use. Even if you only have a single sink, water tank, toilet, shower or any other small water system, you still need to follow the same important guidelines that businesses with lots of water systems do.
At Direct365, we’ll defend your business against an outbreak by providing a thorough Risk Assessment and offering guidance to keep you safe and compliant to British Standards. Our LCA-certified engineers will tailor a flexible action plan to your business and ensure that you’re compliant to the L8 Approved Code of Practice.

First Aid has never been so paramount. We’re proud to supply a range of life-saving AEDs at competitive prices and offer First Aid guidance and advice.
These devices massively increase the chances of survival for victims of sudden cardiac arrest. However, in light of the recent outbreak, the Resuscitation Council UK have released a statement to raise awareness of the possibility that SDA victims may have COVID-19 and to help First Aiders stay safe. Here are some new guidance tips:
- Do not place your face close to the casualty
- Ask a helper to call emergency services and find an AED if possible
- Ask your helper to put the phone on speaker and hold it out towards you, so they can maintain a 2m distance
- Wherever possible, the helper should keep a distance of 2m
- Before starting CPR, use a towel or piece of clothing and lay it over the mouth and nose of the casualty
- Do not give rescue breaths
- If you have used a defibrillator, leave it attached
