Each year more than 1000 cases of legionnaires’ disease associated with staying in hotels or other holiday accommodation (apartments, camping sites) are reported to the European Legionnaires’ Disease Surveillance Network. Legionnaires’ disease is a form of pneumonia which kills between 5 and 10% of those infected and is caused by Legionella bacteria.
Any organisation or premises that does not have an active programme to control the growth of legionella bacteria are negligent in ensuring the safety of its workers, visitors, guests and others. All staff should be trained to be aware of the importance of their role in controlling Legionella
This course explains the background to Legionella and Legionnaires’ Disease, the potential risks associated with water systems and how these can be prevented or controlled.
