Legionella Training

What is Legionella Training?

As well as needing a specialist water compliance company, such as ourselves, to help you manage the risk of Legionella, it is essential that any internal staff who have responsibility for water safety also understand their role and have the appropriate knowledge. Our Legionella training offers this.


Who needs to undertake Legionella training?

Any staff members who have responsibility for conducting risk assessments, for on-going monitoring, for fulfilling a Legionella control plan or for any kind of record keeping should undertake some Legionella training in order to equip themselves with the necessary understanding.


Your responsibilities for Legionella training

ACoP L8 states that those responsible have the “ability, experience, instruction, information, training and resources to enable them to carry out their tasks competently and safely”. They need to know:

  • the risks presented by potential sources of legionella bacteria
  • measures to be adopted and precautions to be taken to protect the people concerned
  • measures to be taken to ensure the control measures remain effective


How we can help

We offer a range of courses, both open courses and in house, suitable for personnel with different roles responsible for water safety. We also offer sector specific training. Our trainers are highly experienced in all areas of Legionella management and deliver the training in a way that is easy to understand, even if you are not technically trained. Our training covers:

  • legislation and guidance
  • Legionella: the disease
  • assessing the risks
  • managing the risk
  • preventing and controlling the risk
  • record keeping
  • responsibilities of suppliers and installers

As well as practical instruction, all delegates will take away a pack containing courses notes and reference documentation as well as a certificate of attendance.
