Legionella Training

 

Legionella bacteria can cause serious harm to an individual’s health if it is not adequately controlled and prevented. It is a requirement that water systems are carefully managed in order to reduce the risk of Legionnaires disease. Any premises with a humanmade water system should have a Legionella risk management programme in place, and within this, there should be training on how to best reduce the risk of Legionella.

Legionella training is a mandatory and essential part of any organisation’s Legionella risk management programme. As a training provider, being able to offer Legionella training to your clients is a crucial asset. This is because many of your clients will have obligations surrounding Legionella.

It is not a legal requirement for companies that may expose other people to Legionella to undergo training. However,  it is a requirement that they can prove their understanding of their legal responsibilities. Having employees complete Legionella training is an easy and hassle-free way for your clients to demonstrate that they have an appropriate level of knowledge to reduce the risk of Legionnaires disease.
