Health and Safety Executive (HSE) opens consultations on control of legionella in water systems
The legionella Consultative Document (CD258) sets out proposals from the HSE to publish an updated Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) on Legionnaire's disease.
The consultation provides an opportunity to comment on whether the draft ACOP text provides legal clarification and proportionate advice on low-risk scenarios.
Accompany guidance provides advice on achieving compliance, information of a general nature, including explanation of the requirements of the law, specific technical information or references to further sources of information.
The revised ACOP gives practical advise on the legal requirements of the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 and the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH). It also applies to the risk from exposure to legionella bacteria and includes information of a general nature including explanation of the requirements of law.
