Legionellosis is the collective name given to the pneumonia-like illness caused by legionella bacteria. This includes the potentially fatal legionnaires’ disease, as well as the similar but less serious conditions.

Any water system that has the right environmental conditions can become a source of legionella bacteria. Cooling towers, evaporative condensers and whirlpool spas are particularly susceptible but all water systems can pose a risk.

This online course meets the training and awareness requirements of relevant legislation and regulations including L8, HSG 274, HTM 04-01,COSHH and the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
