Legal Responsibilities for the control of Legionnaire’s Disease

The HSE guidance document Legionnaires’ disease: The control of legionella in hot and cold water systems (HSG 274) states that “all water systems require a legionella risk assessment” and “it is a legal duty to carry out an assessment to identify and assess whether there is a risk posed by exposure to legionella from the hot and cold water system or any work associated with it”
