Legionella Awareness - RoSPA Approved
Price is per online user of this course. Applicable VAT will be added.
Cases of Legionnaires’ disease, caused by legionella bacteria, are fortunately rare. However, when they occur, they can be fatal to vulnerable people and expensive to organisations and to individual managers.
To meet your obligations under the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations (2002), the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations (1999) and the Health and Safety at Work Act (1974) you need to have assessed the risk from your water systems, including hot and cold water, evaporative cooling and other plant such as vehicle washers and irrigation equipment. You need to have a written scheme which describes what competent people are doing to manage the risks. Even if someone is tasked with simply running the taps once a week, they should understand why this could be a vital part of keeping people safe.
This course outlines typical water management tasks, and helps employees understand why each task is important. As well as looking at what happens when organisations do not safely manage their water systems, employees will be shown how the jobs they have been asked to do will break the chain of events that can lead to a death from Legionnaires’ disease.
