The course is aimed at those with a good working knowledge of hot and cold water systems as the course concentrates on how to produce a robust risk assessment.

Why’s It Important?

Under general health and safety law, as an employer or person in control of a premises, you have health and safety duties and responsibilities to take suitable precautions to prevent or control the risk of exposure to legionella.

The Control of Legionella Bacteria in Water Systems Approved Code of Practice
(L8) specifically states that people involved in implementing precautionary measures should be adequately trained.

Any water system that has the right environmental conditions could potentially be a source for legionella bacteria growth.  No matter how big or small your premises, if you have water systems in your workplace then you have a legal obligation to eliminate or minimise the risk of legionella.
