Legionellosis is a health and safety concern for facility owners and operators, and for those who design, manage, and oversee building water cooling systems. Legionellosis refers to two distinct clinical illnesses: Legionnaires' Disease, which causes pneumonia; and "Pontiac fever," which is more influenza-like.

ASHRAE Standard 188-2015 establishes the minimum legionellosis risk management requirements for the design, construction, installation, commissioning, operation, maintenance and service of centralized building water systems and components.

This course describes the environmental conditions that promote the growth of Legionella in water systems, and the locations where Legionella control measures can be applied in new and existing buildings. A comparison between general compliance and compliance for certain health care facilities will be provided. The course focuses on the compliance with Standard 188-2015 to provide a safer and healthier building environment.
