140 cases of Legionnaires' disease have already been confirmed since January 1st 2016.
Current legislation set out by the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 along with the HSE’s updated code of practice known as L8 which was published in 2001, states that Companies and building owners have a legal duty to manage Legionella.
Our interactive video based 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 & assess sources of risk from Legionella in the premises and implement & manage a control programme.
This course explains the background to Legionella, the potential risks associated with water systems and how these can be prevented or controlled. It helps you to understand the risk that Legionella poses and helps you develop the systems and working practices you need to stay ahead. It 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.
The course consists of 5 modules (listed below) with questions at the end. You are given the chance to review all your answers at the end of each module before final submission and you will be given 3 attempts at each module to achieve a pass rate of 70% or higher.
