Description:
Now more than 40 years after the Legionella bacteria was discovered to be the causative agent of Legionnairesí disease, there has been many developments and changes to the risk management and testing for Pontiac Fever. These changes include an updated position from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), new guidelines from the American Society of Heating, outlines from the Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), as well as new legislation released from New York regarding Legionella monitoring in cooling towers and health care facilities. Also, new test systems for the detection of Legionella bacteria were introduced and guidelines for the traditional culture testing (ISO11731) have been updated. Particular focus will be placed on these recent developments to help professionals in consulting, industrial hygiene and the health care industries dealing with Legionella monitoring and risk management.

Topics include:
• ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 188-2015
• CDC tool kit
• New York Regulation: Part 4 - Protection against Legionella
• "OSHA and EWGLI guidelines
• Design and execution of a sampling plan
• Laboratory analytical methods: IDEXX Legiolert, BioRad iQ-Check, ISO11731:2017
• Methods and applications for eradicating Legionella contamination
