Legionnaires' Disease is a rare but occasionally fatal type of pneumonia caused by the legionnella bacterium. 

Employers have a responsibility to ensure that they comply with legislation that requires you to manage, maintain and treat water systems in their premises. This may include appropriate water treatment and cleaning regimes. Telford & Wrekin Council provide a training course that deals with employers responsibility. Please be advised that there are alternative training providers.
