Legionella is bacteria, which can lead to long term health problems and even death, which is spread through aerosol producing systems such as air conditioning units. The Health And Safety at Work Act (HASWA 1974) puts a legal onus on companies and building owners to manage such risks as legionella. Employers must enter that employees have the training and information required to avoid exposure to legionella bacteria and to apply suitable control measures.
