No prosecutions over deaths
The Crown Office has announced that there will be no prosecutions over the outbreak of Legionnaires' disease in Edinburgh which killed four people in 2012.
The investigation into the outbreak, carried out by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) was unable to identify the source of the bacteria which infected a total of 92 people.
It is understood a cluster of cooling towers in the south-west of the city formed part of the inquiry and the investigation saw a number of companies reported for health and safety breaches unconnected to the outbreak.
Bill Thomas and Clive Hanna gave presentations at the Ireland FM Exhibition in March 2015
Day 2 of the Ireland FM Exhibition saw a presentation on Legionella Control Current Legislation and Best Practice delivered by Bill, closely followed by Clive’s presentation on Risk Assessment Review of Large Property Portfolios. The event and both ISHEM presentations were very well attended.
Bills involvement with the development of the National Guidelines for the Control of Legionellosis in Ireland, 2009 supported an interesting and engaging post presentation Q&A session.
We look forward to attending the even next year on the 8th and 9th March 2016.
