Legionella and landlords’ responsibilities
What is Legionella?
红包扫雷app有福利的legionnaires' disease is a potentially fatal form of pneumonia caused by the inhalation of small droplets of contaminated water containing legionella. all man-made hot and cold water systems are likely to provide an environment where legionella can grow. where conditions are favourable (ie suitable growth temperature range; water droplets (aerosols) produced and dispersed; water stored and/or recirculated; some 'food' for the organism to grow such as rust, sludge, scale, biofilm etc) then the bacteria may multiply thus increasing the risk of exposure. it is a simple fact that the organism will colonise both large and small systems so both require risks to be managed effectively.
