Legionella Training

The Importance of

Legionella Training

For instance, the lack of training and poor communication are all contributory factors in outbreaks of Legionnaires’ disease. Therefore, it is important that the people involved in assessing risk and applying precautions are competent, trained, and aware of their responsibilities.

Firstly, we offer on-site and online compliance Legionella awareness training for all staff involved in the operation of building water systems and those who have a role in the control procedures.

The Legionella course will raise awareness of the dangers associated with legionella and the practical steps that should be taken to reduce the risk that it presents.

Because of this, it’s designed to give delegates a clear understanding of their responsibilities under the ACoP (L8) which helps to maintain a safe working environment for their employees.

Our Course content includes:

  • Firstly, an Introduction to Legionella
  • The susceptibility of staff to Legionella
