Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) — a structured, systematic, cost-effective methodology best known for its successful use in food safety — has proven remarkably effective for preventing waterborne infection, such as Legionnaires' Disease, and injuries, such as scalding, associated with building water systems.
