What the Health & Safety Executive say about Legionella Training

The UK’s Health & Safety Executive have long established that one of the contributory factors in outbreaks of Legionnaires’ disease is a lack of training and awareness of responsibility by employers, their staff and other operators.

To improve the quality of your Legionnaires’ disease risk management procedures anyone with responsibility for the management of the control of Legionella should receive suitable training to ensure they are competent to carry out the work they are assigned to do.

Is Legionella Training Required by Law?

The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 places a general duty on all employers to provide suitable training to ensure the safety and health of their employees in the workplace.

The Health and Safety Executive deal with the requirement for Legionella training more specifically in their Approved Code of Practice ACOP L8 “Legionnaires’ disease: The Control of Legionella Bacteria in Water Systems” stating that it is important that anyone involved in managing and controlling Legionella risks must be properly trained to a standard that ensures tasks are performed in a safe and technically competent manner.

The HSE also recommend that regular auditing and refresher training be carried out to help ensure people’s skills are kept up to date.
