Consultation on legionnaires' disease

Close date: 23 August 2013

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) consults on the revised "Legionnaires' disease - the control of legionella bacteria in water systems: Approved Code of Practice and general guidance". This is relevant to employers where there is a risk of exposure to legionella bacteria, and provides clarification to help them comply with the legal requirements. Changes include assigning some of the guidance Approved Code of Practice status where there is an accepted industry method of compliance and simplifying some of the terminology. The consultation follows the Löfstedt review of health and safety and the initial HSE consultation.
