Basic Legionella Management
Current legislation set out by the Health and Safety at Work Act along with the HSE’s updated code of practice known as L8, state that companies and building owners have a legal duty to manage Legionella.
Our interactive training course is aimed at all employers and staff to assist them in identifying the danger that Legionella poses, as well as covering ways to identify and assess sources of risk from Legionella on the premises.
It also gives you enough knowledge to get a legionella control programme off the ground yourself – or make confident, informed choices when commissioning others to take this on for you.
This course is primarily aimed at building and facilities managers and maintenance professionals that have nominated responsibilities for water systems.
Lack of training and awareness of basic Legionella management have been shown to be factors in many outbreaks of legionella. Having adequate training and carrying out appropriate checks can ensure water system safety.
This basic legionella management course is approved by ROSPA giving you peace of mind and delegates increased confidence that the content is accurate and relevant.
Online training is flexible, efficient and cost effective meaning the candidate can progress through the modules at their own pace and in their own time, so they can fit the training in around their work and personal life.
There are a wide range of other health and safety courses available in the eLearning suite that are relevant to the same industries as these courses.
There are also business skills courses such as Leadership Skills and Developing Teamwork which could be of value to managers and team leaders that may also have responsibilities for buildings and facilities.
