NEW - Legionella risk for wet leisure operators and a guide to protection

SPATEX Seminar Arena 2

Due to the aquatic nature of these facilities and the potential for bacterial and biofilm growth the importance of risk assessment cannot be underestimated.

Specifically any water source which causes aerosols to be produced could be a high risk for bathers, spectators and staff.

The presentation will consider:

  • Basic life cycle.
  • Conditions conducive to growth.
  • Ideal related environs.
  • Signs of potential hazards
  • Basic steps to consider in the prevention of infection
  • Examples of incidents in the leisure industry
