Field workers are often called upon to identify and eliminate Legionella contaminations in buildings. This organism is a significant threat to human health, particularly for individuals who are immune compromised due to either age or medical conditions. The Legionella organism possesses unique characteristics that allow it to readily colonize homes, workplaces and hospitals. These same characteristics make Legionella difficult to detect, quantify and eradicate. In this presentation we will discuss this challenge from the perspective of a worker in the field. Particular focus will be placed on utilizing the most modern methods and technologies we have available to address Legionella detection and remediation.

Topics include:
• ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 188-2015
• Process and tools of Legionella detection
• Signs of possible Legionella contamination
• Signs exhibited by individuals exposed to the Legionella organism
• Design and execution of a sampling plan
• Laboratory analytical methods and interpretation of results
• Recommended action thresholds for contamination
• Methods and applications for eradicating Legionella contamination
