Legionella is a type of bacteria commonly found in natural and artificial water sources such as cooling towers, hot water systems, and spas. When these bacteria are inhaled in vapours or steam, they can pose serious health risks to humans, causing Legionnaires’ disease, a deadly form of pneumonia.
Establishing a Legionella control regime is crucial in mitigating the risks associated with Legionella.
The regime involves identifying potential sources of contamination, implementing effective measures to manage the risks, and regularly monitoring the efficacy of the control measures.
