The first Hydro-X Legionella seminar for 2017 was held last month at Manchester Old Trafford Stadium.
Hydro-X Legionella Seminar
One month ago Hydro-X held the first Legionella seminar of 2017. The free seminar focused on the HSE enforcement and the legal and human cost of Legionella, including open discussions on both the HTM 04/01 and HSG 271. Our Hydro-X Legionella seminars have seen increasing popularity over the past few years with a record number of attendees and a full waiting list hopeful of cancellations.
The day involved dedicated presentations from the renowned guest speakers Dr Paul McDermott and Ken Ashley. Dr Paul McDermott is a former Specialist Inspector of the HSE and key contributor to the new ACoP L8:2013 and HSG274. Ken Ashley is a former specialist inspector of the HSE and lead author of the ACoP L8:2001. During his career Ken has also acted as an expert witness for a number of HSE prosecutions and for the Crown when prosecuting for manslaughter alleged to have been caused by Legionnaires’ disease. Both speakers focused their expertise on discussing the legal and human costs of legionella, with separate Q & A sessions throughout the day.
The venue did not disappoint with a spectacular view overlooking the iconic Manchester United’s Old Trafford pitch. The increasing interest in the seminar lead to Hydro-X upgrading to the larger Evolution Suite, to accommodate a larger audience.

Hydro-X pride itself on offering informative and educational legionella seminars, the feedback received from the day reflects this. With an overwhelming positive reception to the seminar, arguably one of the best seminars to date.
