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 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. In short, they MUST be competent to do thier job.
The Health and Safety Executive also recommend that regular auditing and refresher training be carried out to help ensure people’s skills are kept up to date.
