HSE tells companies to improve their management of legionella risks

Businesses are being told to do more to protect workers and members of the public from exposure to legionella. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has issued a safety notice after identifying common failings in legionella control from a review of outbreaks of Legionnaires' disease in GB over the past ten years. HSE's findings confirmed that cooling towers and evaporative condensers are the most common source of significant outbreaks. Ninety per cent of outbreaks stem from failure to recognise potential legionella problems or to adopt effective control measures.
