Legionella and Water Safety
Comprehensive Legionella Training Courses
What is water safety training?
The UK HSE have categorically stated that a lack of training, sub-standard communication and poor management are contributing factors in outbreaks of Legionnaire's disease.
It follows, therefore, that those responsible for Legionella risk assessment and implementing a risk management policy for Legionella should be suitably trained in Legionella control measures themselves.
Employers have a duty of care to understand and manage Legionella risks and must comply with health and safety regulations when it comes to this matter.
Our Legionella and Water Safety training course looks closely at the characteristics of Legionella and raises awareness about how the disease is caught and transmitted, particularly in close working quarters.
It explores in detail what your employer's legal responsibilities are when it comes to controlling the Legionella bacteria and offers advice on how to achieve water safety in the workplace.
In addition, the course also examines the effect lead can have on water safety since there are legal limits for the level of lead in drinking water too.
Our Legionella and Water Safety training course is available off-the-shelf for ease of use; we can also work with your subject experts to tailor the approach and information to suit your organisation's requirements. Using the Adapt Authoring Tool you can even modify our courses yourself.Read More

What is legionella and why do I need training?
Legionella is a collective term that refers to the group of diseases caused by the Legionella bacteria in humans. The most serious of these diseases is a type of pneumonia called Legionnaires' disease, but there are less-dangerous diseases such as Pontiac fever and Lochgoilhead fever to consider too. Legionella risk increases with age and health, and for people that smoke or drink heavily, but in reality everyone is susceptible to this potentially fatal bacteria.
The most-common sources of Legionella are in water systems that store or re-circulate water, but there are many work-place based items such as humidifiers, drinking water dispensers – even ornamental water features – that require risk assessments. Employers have a duty of care to understand and manage legionella risks and must comply with health and safety regulations when it comes to this matter.
