Risk of legionella in water systems

20th September 2012

The Health and Safety Executive has issued a safety notice over risks from legionella in a range of water-based systems.

The notice draws attention to key aspects of the proper management of the risks from legionella in a wide range of systems, such as hot and cold water systems in buildings, spa pools and a range of industrial processes that use water for cooling, washing and misting. The warning comes after the HSE said that a review of outbreaks in Britain over the past 10 years revealed that poor control continues to create a risk of outbreaks.
