BSRIA releases Legionella guide

BSRIA has published its second topic guide on Legionella, which is available to download free from its website.

BSRIA has published its second topic guide on Legionella, which is available to download free from its website.

 

The BSRIA Topic Guides are designed to be an ‘at a glance publication’ introducing readers to key industry subjects and suggesting further reading.

 

This new guide is aimed at people looking for basic information about Legionella, including definition, history and prevalence. 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 energy & environment, Reginald Brown, as he looks at cooling towers and whether they are beneficial to Legionella management or prevent a higher risk.

 

He said: “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. This guide introduces you to the risks and can be used as an initial starting point in understanding how to manage said risks.”

 

TG08/2015 ‘At a Glance’ – Legionella is now free to download from the BSRIA website for members and non-members:
