  • The legislation, Health and Safety at Work Act, HSE ACoP L8 & HSG274 part 2
  • The role and duties of the Legionella Responsible Person and Legionella Duty Holder
  • The Legionella compliance requirements of your organisation

This will enable you to:

  • Better comply with the “ACoP L8 Fourth edition” code of practice and HSG 274 Technical Guidance.
  • More effectively manage the risk associated with Legionella bacteria.
  • Reduce the risk of associated moral / legal / financial implications associated with prosecution for poor legionella control

  • Plan water sampling and testing programmes or critique contractors programmes
  • Plan practical control and management of Legionella (Hot & Cold water) systems
  • Design maintenance schedules to support the control systems
  • Fulfil the role of a ‘Legionella Responsible Person’ or ‘Legionella Duty Holder’ in relation to Legionella control within Hot & Cold Water Systems

Course Information and Details

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has guidelines and instructions (ACop L8 and HSG 274) that specifically state that lack of Legionella Training is a key causative factor in Legionella outbreaks, and in controlling the risks associated with managing water systems.

This 1-day Legionella Training course is designed to give delegates a thorough insight into their legal obligations regarding Legionella management of hot and cold water systems, and the principal factors that need to be considered when actioning a legionella risk assessment and evaluating monitoring and compliance options.

A final assessment will ensure that participants leave our Legionella Responsible Person Training course with the ability to perform their Legionella management duties, and the management of service providers effectively.

This City and Guilds Legionella Training Course is deliverable face to face at one of our training centres up and down the country (please see dates and venues above), or alternatively, the course can be completed online via a 3hr live, remote training session: ONLINE LEGIONELLA RESPONSIBLE PERSON TRAINING (HXT-02)

The content is exactly the same as that covered in our classroom course, but done in the comfort of your own home or office, and you still receive the same City and Guilds Accredited Programme certificate on successful completion.
