What's Inside the Guide?
In the past 30 years, there have been over 200 cases of Legionnaires’ Disease on ships. In one incident alone, 50 people were infected, and one person died.

What’s more, you’ll most likely have to cease trading until the issue has been resolved, resulting in further loss of earnings. You could even lose a crew member in the process.

This guide will talk you through:
- How Legionella reaches your vessel
