This publication has been superseded by BG 58/2015 "Legionnaire's Disease - Operation and Maintenance Log Book". Offers technical guidance to facilities managers and maintenance personnel on the operation and maintenance of water-related services in buildings to minimise the risk of legionellosis. 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.

Discusses management procedures and the technical issues surrounding disinfection, routine monitoring, operation and maintenance tasks. 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.
