Legionella Awareness Training

Awareness of Legionnaires disease and the potentially deadly effects has grown in recent years. With each major outbreak with associated illness and fatalities followed by another high profile prosecution it’s now even more important that organisations and individuals understand their legal duties and the consequences of failure to comply with legislation.

Our half-day Legionella Awareness training course can be delivered either within the work place, at our Tewkesbury Gloucestershire main office or at one of our training centres throughout the UK.

Who Needs this Qualification?

This training will be of benefit to managers, supervisors and employees who are involved in the control of buildings and their maintenance. This course would also benefit company owners and directors who have a responsibility for health and safety and require a sound overview of the issues surrounding Legionella control, legislation and best practice procedures.
