Water Quality Testing
Having access to clean, safe water is one of the keystones of a modern, developed society. Australian law prescribes strict guidelines on what constitutes quality, safe water, so you need to be sure your business is abiding by these rules and you’re not putting customers or employees in danger. Fortunately, at Safeair Environmental Services (SAES) environmental safety consultants, we can help with the following:
Drinking water assessments
We can ensure your water system complies with the regulations outlined in the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines framework. We do this via a three-step process, which covers assessing the current system from catchment to tap, how the system can be sufficiently maintained in future and how you can supervise or audit this.
Legionella sampling and risk assessments
Legionella is a form of bacteria, commonly found in man-made water systems. It is responsible for the potentially fatal Legionnaires’ disease, which has been known to cause spates of deaths in older people in undetected and untreated systems. If your building’s water system contains rust or organic matter, or if the temperature is between 20ºC and 49ºC, it could be at risk.
We can carry out a risk assessment, testing both for the immediate presence of Legionella and the likelihood of your business being susceptible in future. If you operate in an industry which involves discharging potentially harmful substances into the wider environment, we can also help with environmental discharge testing.

At SAES, we conduct thorough water analysis in a range of workplaces across Queensland and Brisbane to ensure all water systems are safe. We’re available 24/7 to help with any emergencies and work hard to give employers and employees all the information they need regarding environmental health and safety.
