The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 requires employers to ensure that employees are properly informed, trained and supervised, in addition this this the HSE’s Approved Code of Practice L8 Ed.4 2013 requires that all person(s) involved in controlling the risk are competent.
Inadequate management, lack of training and poor communication are all contributory factors in outbreaks of legionnaires’ disease. It is therefore important that the people involved in assessing risk and applying precautions are competent, trained and aware of their responsibilities.
This includes the nominated person (responsible person) who has to manage the day to day mitigation of the risks. Also anyone else who is involved – this would include whoever physically undertakes the temperature checks, flushing etc. and any contractors that are brought onto site.
Clearly based on the above there is not a single training course which equals competence for all.
We offer a broad range of Legionella training ranging from courses that are taught and examined based on a set syllabus and lead to a formal British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS) proficiency qualification through to bespoke Legionella awareness training which can be tailored to any business or situation.
