Legionella advice from the Health & Safety Executive

Visit the Health & Safety Executive website via the link below.

It provides practical advice and guidance to control the risks from exposure to Legionella in man-made water systems.

The information will help employers and those with responsibility for the control of premises, including landlords, to understand what their duties are and how to comply with health and safety law.

It applies to premises controlled in connection with a trade, business or other undertaking where water is stored or used, and where there is a means of creating and transmitting breathable water droplets (aerosols), thus causing a reasonably foreseeable risk of exposure to legionella bacteria.
