Legionella is a bacterium that can cause legionnaire's disease, among other health problems. It can multiply in water systems, especially those which are not properly maintained. It is a vital responsibility to keep people safety from the effects of Legionella exposure.
With so many slowly returning to their workplaces after the coronavirus lockdown, it is more important than ever to be knowledgeable about water safety. Many water systems will have been lying unused since March, increasing the risk of stagnant water and bacteria. Though the focus is mostly on making businesses Covid-secure, employers cannot afford to ignore this potentially fatal risk to health.
Our new Advanced Legionella online course joins our Legionella and Water Safety course to provide a thorough understanding of this key health and safety topic. It is designed for people who have completed the original course and need more information on the subject. It is especially useful for people whose job role makes them a "dutyholder" or "responsible person", such as landlords, employers and premises managers.
