Health and safety advice and guidance

Advice available for businesses on the Health and Safety (HSE) website

To meet your obligations under health and safety law you will need to make sure that you’ve thought about the health and safety risks, not only to your employees, but also to any contractors or any other person who is affected by your undertaking.

Cooling towers and evaporative condensers

Over recent years there have been a number of outbreaks of Legionnaires' disease which have been associated with cooling towers and evaporative condensers.

All premises where cooling towers and evaporative condensers are situated must register with us so that we can identify potential areas that could give rise to the spread of infectious diseases such as Legionnaires' disease.

Notify us of your cooling tower or evaporative condenser by completing the application form and emailing it to us.
