Aegon’s UK head offices have been subjected to testing from health officials in Scotland following an outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease in Edinburgh.
The provider’s headquarters has three of 16 water cooling towers within a 44 square mile radius of the outbreak currently being checked by officials.
There have been 21 confirmed and 19 suspected cases so far in the Edinburgh region, with one death.
An Aegon spokesman says: “We have really stringent safety procedures and safety processes that go above and beyond what is required by regulation.
“We test every three days and get results back on the third day. All of the tests we have done have not uncovered anything untoward.
“We are confident that we are not the source of this outbreak but we understand that the environmental health agency have to investigate all of these water cooling towers.”
The results of the Government tests are expected within 10 days. Aegon’s offices remain open.
