Our legionella awareness training is designed to equip nominated personnel with the required skills to effectively manage the risks associated with legionella.

A lack of legionella awareness training and inefficient communication are factors that have been pinpointed as causes of Legionnaires’ disease outbreaks in recent years.

It is a requirement for all those with nominated responsibilities to be suitably trained, informed and instructed on the risks of legionella. 

Personnel with appointed duties should be familiar with the requirements needed to implement effective risk management strategies. Additionally, it is recommended that refresher legionella awareness training is undertaken regularly. 

The more informed your workforce is as to the dangers of legionella bacteria and the conditions under which they thrive, the more competent individuals will be in taking preventative action and recognising warning signs.

With an extensive range of legionella awareness training options across all industries, we are the ideal Total Quality Assurance partner to deliver your courses. Running legionella awareness training since 2006, our lecturers possess experience gained in the field and can adapt programmes to suit your needs.
