Printed delegate materials provided
This course is designed for duty holders requiring information on the main aspects of legionella and Legionnaires disease, its implications and the need for controls. It provides training for persons in higher management including owners, responsible persons and duty holders of water systems. It will fulfil the needs of anybody who has been told they require Legionella Awareness training.
As well as duty holders and responsible persons, delegates are likely to include factory, site and office managers, and supervisory staff. Site engineers, facilities managers and plant operators may also find the course useful especially if they have had limited training in legionella and the need for its control.
It is essential for dutyholders, responsible persons and those who are responsible for, use or operate, any water system that is capable of growing and emitting legionella bacteria.
The course assumes no previous knowledge of Legionella, but delegates would benefit by downloading The Approved Code of Practice (L8) and HSG274 Parts 1-3 from the HSE website (free PDF download - click here) and familiarising themselves with them.
60 minute written exam with 70% pass mark. A resit is possible for anyone failing the exam for an additional fee.
6 CPD points awarded.
