Briefly summarises the regulatory situation and risk assessment process for the control of legionellosis, but concentrates on the management and technical issues of the operation and maintenance of water systems to minimise and control the risk.

Appendices contain advice on tendering for water treatment, detailed recommendations for monitoring frequency for different types of water systems and a summary of technical risks control and prevention options.

The guide is supported by a legionellosis control logbook (available separately) and a number of other BSRIA documents. States the reports should be read and used on conjunction with the new HSC "Approved Code of Practice and Guidance: Legionnaires' disease: the control, of legionella bacteria in water systems", which details the requirements for risk assessment and risk management of water-related systems.
