Legionella and Water Safety Programs

There is a renewed focus on the prevention of building-associated Legionnaires’ disease stemming from recent outbreaks, news reports and updated guidelines and standards, including ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 188 and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The onus to address these requirements and implement water safety programs is on the building owners. However often the program team includes facility engineering, environmental services, and service providers who become involved in the implementation process. This session will provide attendees with a proactive path forward for implementing water safety programs for their building water systems.

Learning Objectives:

1. Learn about updated guidelines and standards including ASHRAE 188
2. Learn some science about Legionella and Legionnaries’ disease
3. Gain insight through case studies of how things went wrong for other facilities
4. Identify the steps to improve or develop a proactive water safety program for Legionella
