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.

 

Why Should You Offer Legionella Training?

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.

 

Who Is Legionella Training For?

This kind of training course is for anyone responsible for premises. This can include employers, employees, self-employed, landlords and letting agents. Landlords have an obligation to their tenants to be aware of all of the dangers of Legionella. As well as to undergo a risk assessment. Anyone who conducts a Legionella risk assessment or performs regular checks on water systems or cleans and treats water systems should complete Legionella training.
