WaterTech Legionella Services deliver a range of training packages including bespoke onsite training.  We offer training for "Duty Holders" & "Responsible Persons".  If you want more specific training then please contact us and we can discuss a bespoke package for you.  The HSE Approved Code of Practice for the Control of Legionella Bacteria 4th edition was released in November 2013.

 

Section 50 & 51 of the ACOP L8 states "Inadequate management, lack of training and poor communication are all contributory factors in outbreaks of legionnaires' disease.  It is therefore important that the people involved in assessing risk and applying precautions are competent, trained and aware of their responsibilities."

 

"The duty holder should specifically appoint a competent person or persons to take day-to-day responsibility for controlling any identified risk from legionella bacteria, known as the ‘responsible person’.  It is important for the appointed responsible person to have sufficient authority, competence and knowledge of the installation to ensure that all operational procedures are carried out effectively and in a timely way.  Those specifically appointed to implement the control measures and strategies should be suitably informed, instructed and trained and their suitability assessed.  They must be properly trained to a level that ensures tasks are carried out in a safe, technically competent manner; and receive regular refresher training.  Keep records of all initial and refresher training.  If a duty holder is self-employed or a member of a partnership, and is competent, they may appoint themselves.  The appointed responsible person should have a clear understanding of their role and the overall health and safety management structure and policy in the organisation."

Our Legionella Awareness Training Packages

 

All of our training is delivered by our team of WaterTech Engineers.  Our engineers are City & Guilds and NVQ qualified, Water Industry Approved and Water Safe Registered.  Our training consists of a mixture of classroom instruction and practical demonstrations.  Training is usually delivered at your own site and the practical section is carried out using your own hot & cold water systems.

 

This approach allows us to train Duty Holders and Responsible Persons by using the actually system you are responsible for.  Each of the training packages takes on average half a day depending on the number of delegates attending the session.  Following the training each delegate who completed the session will receive a certificate of attendance.
