Basic Legionella Management

Basic Legionella Management

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.

Lack of training and awareness of Legionella have been shown to be factors in many outbreaks of legionella. Having adequate training and carrying out appropriate checks can ensure water system safety.

The course is approved by CPD, IIRSM & Gatehouse Awards giving you peace of mind and delegates increased confidence that the content is accurate and relevant.
