Health & safety advice

man in maskWe provide a range of general advice and information to both employers and employees who wish to know more about health and safety legislation.

Asbestos

Cooling towers

Outbreaks of Legionnaires' Disease have been associated with wet cooling systems (cooling towers and evaporative condensers), resulting in serious infection and fatalities.

Regulations mean you need to notify your local authority of wet cooling systems, including cooling towers and evaporative condensers, including notifying us of any changes, such as when plant ceases to be in operation. Maintaining records rests with councils and enforcement is split between the HSE and the local authorities.

Queries about the listed premises within our borough should be directed to Tamworth Borough Council.
