Legionella Risk Management

Tim Keane - Legionella Risk Management

Main Program: ASHRAE 188 - Legionella Risk Management


The February technical topic will be on ASHRAE 188 Standard on Legionella Risk Management- Impact on Plumbing Industry. This meeting will be a lunch time meeting held on February 15, 2017 held at Boston Society of Architects (BSA) located at 290 Congress Street, Suite 200 Boston, MA. We have the room from 11:00am to 2:00pm, check in will start around 11:30 with the speaker starting at 12. Please make sure you are on time. This session will focus on:

  • Understanding real risk of waterborne pathogens
  • Liability Risk associated with plumbing system design 
  • Business impact on Plumbing Industry

This session will be presented by Mr. Tim Keane. Tim Keane is a consulting engineer with Legionella Risk Management and is an internationally recognized expert on methods to control and minimize the risk of Legionella in building water systems.

Tim has 39 years’ of field engineering experience including; new construction project engineering, facility engineering,  water treatment consulting and the last 15 years’ focused on building water system design, operation, maintenance and code development for waterborne pathogen mitigation and control.   A member of the ASHRAE 188 committee since 2005.  

In 2016 he led a seminar session at the International Emerging Technology Conference titled, Water Quality, Water Savings and Water-Energy Nexus - Three Issues, One Solution? The session presenters included an Academic waterborne pathogen expert, Dr. Marc Edwards, a field expert in water system energy savings, Gary Klein and Tim Keane.  The session concluded that good engineering design of plumbing systems will save money, save installation and building costs, save operation and maintenance costs while reducing water consumption, energy consumption and Legionella risk. 

His article published in PM Engineer titled “ASHRAE 188: The Domino Effect” discusses the potential impact ASHRAE 188 will have on the plumbing industry.
