Fines and costs totalling nearly 250,000 have been imposed on two firms after workers and members of the public were put at risk of exposure to the potentially fatal waterborne Legionella bacteria.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) prosecuted multinational automotive parts manufacturer Eaton Ltd and water treatment services provider, Aegis Ltd of Felspar Road, Amington Industrial Estates, Tamworth, Staffordshire after an investigation in 2006.

For more information on Legionella come to our meeting on Tuesday 8 November 2011 when Terry Horeseman, member of the Legionella Control Association Management Committee will be giving a talk on Legionella. Terry has nearly 20 years of experience in the field of controlling Legionella and I am sure will be willing to answer any queries members may have.
