HSE research has found that the legionella outbreaks in recent years were as a result of:
- departures from planned maintenance schedules (allowing plant conditions to get worse, and longer periods for problems to develop);
- changes in the process (leading to changes in the risks, or rendering existing precautions ineffective);
- staff/contractor changes (leading to a loss of knowledge);
- intermittent use of plant (resulting in inconsistent control measures);
- unusual weather conditions (e.g. bacteria multiplying very fast in warm weather).
With the HSE now stepping up their inspections, it is important that the responsible person within your organisation is aware of their duties under the legislation.
