Infographic: Preventing Legionella Exposure

To prevent exposure to Legionella in the workplace, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recommends having awareness about water systems where the bacteria could grow, performing water system maintenance to prevent growth, and checking for unexpected growth should preventive measures fail. In cases where Legionella hazards can’t be controlled with engineering and administrative controls, personal protective equipment (PPE) may be needed to prevent worker exposures and infections. Here’s what you need to know about how to protect workers against Legionella exposure with PPE.
