Guest and Employee Safety
Legionella can grow and spread in many areas of hotels and resorts. Legionella can make people sick when the bacteria grow in water and spread in droplets small enough for people to breathe in. Legionella grows best in warm water that is not moving or that does not have enough disinfectant to kill the bacteria.
Your Hotel Needs A Water Management Program
The problems that lead to Legionnaires' disease are preventable through water management programs. A water management program is a multi-step continuous process designed to:
• Identify areas in a building where Legionella could grow and spread
• Reduce risk by managing and monitoring the water system
• Trigger action when risks are identified
Developing and following a water management plan will keep your hotel occupants safe.
