Legionnaires disease occurs as a result of infections caused by the legionellaceae family of bacteria.
It is a form of pneumonia which results in around 250 identified cases a year and can prove fatal, especially to the elderly or those prone to respirable problems.
Legionnaires disease is contracted by inhaling small droplets of water suspended in air which contain the legionella bacterium.
Legionella bacteria occurs naturally in surface water and soils etc but can also proliferate within man made environments such as cooling towers, hot and cold distribution systems, water plant, humidifiers and air washers.
Every year, thousands of workers are made ill by hazardous substances exposure, contracting lung disease such as asthma, cancer and skin disease such as dermatitis.
As an employer, you are responsible for taking effective measures to control exposure to hazardous substances and protect health. These measures can also improve production or cut waste. Under the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (as amended) Employers are required to protect both employees and others who may be exposed to hazardous substances by ensuring that monitoring procedures are in place to ensure their safety.
Asbestos is a natural fibre material which has been used as a building material in the UK since the 1950’s.
Asbestos is usually mixed with other materials making it difficult to know if you are being exposed to it or not, it is highly likely that you are or have been working with asbestos if you work in a building constructed before 2000. Asbestos is typically found in products including pipe insulation, boilers, ceiling tiles and sprayed coatings.
