Legionellosis is a health and safety concern for facility owners and operators and those who manage and oversee building water systems and devices. ASHRAE Standard 188-2018 establishes the minimum legionellosis risk management requirements for the design, construction, installation, commissioning, operation, maintenance, and service of premise plumbing, centralized building water systems and components. This course describes the environmental conditions that promote the growth of Legionella in building water systems and the locations where Legionella control measures can be applied. A comprehensive management strategy for the prevention of legionellosis is also discussed in addition to a thorough introductory background on Legionella bacteria and legionellosis. The course focuses on the compliance with ASHRAE Standard 188-2018 to provide a safer and healthier building environment.
