Cooling tower registration

All premises with cooling towers or evaporative condensers in the Barnsley area need to be registered with us.

This may include premises that have air conditioning and refrigeration equipment. This applies if the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is the normal enforcing authority for health and safety.

We keep a public register of cooling towers and evaporative condensers. This is to help prevent legionnaires disease. We make sure potential sources of legionella infection are correctly treated. This helps prevent any outbreaks.

The HSE has produced guidance and an approved code of practice about what precautions should be taken.
