Legionella Risk Assessment and Disinfection of Water Systems for Mechanical Services

With all rented premises (Homes, Caravan Sites, Hostels) now requiring a Legionella Risk Assessment to be carried out this course is the choice for operatives who would like to extend their work into this area. This requirement has been raised as a result of an amendment to HSE Legislation (L8 - The control of legionella bacteria in water systems).

This is a one day course covering how to carry out a Risk Assessment and Disinfection of water systems. Operatives must hold a Water Regulations (or Water Bylaws) qualification prior to attending.

Full information on Legionella, L8 and the Risk Assessment process can be found on the HSE Website. There is also a handy leaflet for duty holders available via the HSE Website.
