Training Course Outline:
The IOSH approved course focuses on the key components of the risks posed by Legionella bacteria and how a business can ensure that it adequately controls those components to ensure a safe working environment.
The course covers, and underlines, the requirements within both the CoSHH Regulations and the Approved Code of Practice (L8) for ‘The Control of Legionella Bacteria within Water Systems’. In addition, this course takes an in depth look at the current Technical Guidance Documents – HSG274 Parts 1, 2 and 3.
During the course, delegates will complete a number of risk assessments on different water applications and will also learn how to critique contractors, to ensure competency in everyday matters as well as a contractor’s water sampling programmes.
The course includes the aspects of maintenance programmes and the development of Log Book records as well as Written Schemes of Control, as laid out in the Approved Code of Practice requirements.
Through the practical exercises, delegates will develop key skills in:
- best practice approaches to managing Legionella bacteria
- the main components of an effective preventive maintenance programme
- plan the requirements of a successful water sampling programme
In order to ensure that participants leave the course with the ability to develop their Legionella management programme effectively a final written assessment will seek to prove the knowledge gained from throughout the day.
Ultimately, this course will enable a participant to fulfil the role of ‘Responsible Person’. Click here to book a place on the course now.
