Legionnaires’ Disease: A Brief Guide for Dutyholders

Posted by Tracy Seward

The HSE have published a leaflet for employers and people in control of premises, such as landlords, where man-made water systems are used that could be a potential source for legionella bacteria growth.

It aims to help explain the health risks associated with legionella.

Legionellosis is the collective name given to the pneumonia-like illness caused by legionella bacteria. This includes the most serious legionnaires’ disease, as well as the similar but less serious conditions of Pontiac fever and Lochgoilhead fever.

You can access the leaflet here
