Complying with the law & awareness training
Every business with a water system of some kind, from water or cooling towers to hot tubs, needs to be sure the health and safety requirements regarding Legionnaires’ disease and the control of Legionella bacteria are being met.
Appointing a Responsible Person to do this can be a challenge, since you must be sure that person is indeed responsible, has the authority and resources to fulfil their obligations, and equally as important is competent to do the job correctly.
This is where our training courses come in. Water Treatment Services provides extensive and in-depth legionella training designed for those individuals who have responsibility in this area of health and safety, more on our training courses here… training →
Legionella awareness & risk assessment training
Knowing how to perform a proper risk assessment for legionella is very important. You must be aware of the likely risks posed by any water sources or systems at your business premises. Once these risks have been identified and recorded it is easier to put together a proper treatment plan to keep the risks in check. This programme is often referred to as a scheme of control.
Responsible person courses
There are other courses available that delve more deeply into aspects surrounding the control of legionella, the need to be aware of Legionnaires’ disease and how it occurs, and how various water systems should be checked and treated.
You can choose the most appropriate training course for your needs according to your business and the water systems that are present there.
From spas to leisure centres and through to industries with cooling water systems and cooling towers, everyone can become more aware of the risks.
These courses also reveal how to test for Legionella bacteria and how to create a proper water treatment programme to ensure the risks are kept at an acceptable level.
Avoid the potential consequences of a lack of legionella awareness
In many cases where an isolated outbreak of Legionnaires’ comes to light, the cause is often found to have occurred because one or more businesses or managers were unaware of their responsibilities in this safety critical area. Even if you believe you are fully aware of your responsibilities and the requirements you have to meet, can you be certain you have ticked all the boxes?
