Event Type

Since the discovery of the Legionellae genus in 1976, we have slowly learned more about this deadly pathogen. There are hundreds of papers, codes and guidelines, and yet every day people still contract this potentially fatal disease.

Many people have asked what equipment / devices have been associated with cases of Legionnaires’ disease, The question is misleading because it does not address the root of the issue, Legionella is aqueous, it exists all around us, and given the right set of environment it could cause disease.

This technical meeting will address the prevention measures in buildings, the responsibility of building owners and facility management team. The technical meeting will also give a review of some well-known cases in history.
