It was tempting to simply call this webinar “Legionella and Lockdown”, however the risk of Legionnaires’ Disease won’t disappear when life gets back to the “new” normal.

● What is Legionella and how is Legionnaires’ Disease contracted?
● People at increased risk of contracting Legionnaires’ Disease
● Where can Legionella be found in a building’s systems?
● Control measures required to reduce risk
● A Legionella risk management plan
● Controls to reduce the risk of Legionella proliferation?
● Legionella risk assessment frequency
● Action following Legionella bacteria being detected in a building’s water system
● Record keeping
● Information on lockdowns/reduced staff numbers
