It aims to introduce key aspects behind legionella bacteria control at the legally required basic level.

Why complete Legionella Awareness Training?

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has guidelines (ACoP L8 and HSG 274) which specifically state that lack of training is a key causative factor in Legionella outbreaks. This then raises the importance and the need for Legionnaires disease awareness.
