Funding campaigns of the Upper Austrian specialist group

Washing hygiene scholarship

The high hygiene standards of washing stations, gantries and lances protect the health of customers and staff. To ensure that this continues to be guaranteed, we are working on the ÖNORM B 5022 Edition: 2020-01-01 collaborated. Although it is not a law, it nevertheless ensures effective monitoring of legionella and has been in force since January 1, 2020. This is important for car wash operators: in case of suspicion of legionella , they are only released from liability if the system is verified every year. Such incidents are rare, but have happened before: around 2018, several car washes were officially closed after a suspected case of legionella. An annual inspection can prevent this and also frees the operator from accusations of negligence!
