Quick guide to legionella
‘Legionella’ is the topic of BSRIA’s second topic guide, which is available to download free from its web site. Topic guides are designed to be at-a-glance publications to introduce readers to key industry topics and suggested further reading.
The guide is aimed at those looking for basic information about legionella. There is also guidance on the relevant legislation and supporting documentation, alongside some risk-management tips to ensure compliance.
Expert commentary is provided by BSRIA’s head of environment Reginald Brown. He says, ‘Despite the serious nature of legionella, the risk of Legionnaires’ Disease is relatively small. The risks in water systems can be almost eliminated through sensible design decisions and good standards of maintenance.’
