Legionella Awareness Training
Legionnaires’ disease is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia and everyone is susceptible to infection – some more than others. Any water system, with the right environmental conditions, could be a source for legionella bacteria growth.
The most common sources of legionella in man-made water systems are: cooling towers, hot and cold water systems and spa pools. There are also a number of other risk systems that may pose a risk to exposure to legionella, e.g. humidifiers, air washers, emergency showers, indoor ornamental fountains etc.
