Good management will ensure these water systems are kept clean and well maintained. If you are an operator, you must properly assess the risk that these systems pose and adequately control them.

For cooling towers and evaporative condensers this may include measures to maintain and monitor water quality and maintenance and monitoring of equipment performance. A competent person should be appointed for implementing these controls.

The Health and Safety Executive has published an approved code of practice for the control of legionella bacteria in water systems.
