Legionella Risk Management: a review of the State and Commonwealth requirements

Recent outbreaks of legionellosis in Australia have been associated with the water distribution systems inside hospitals, as well as the better publicised source of the air conditioning cooling tower. In this whitepaper Sarah Bailey reviews the risks from various sources of the disease and summarises Commonweath and State requirements applicable to healthcare and other facilities.

A PDF of this whitepaper is available here.

Please note: a version of this whitepaper was first published in Healthcare Facilities, March 2017 pp 46-55
