Legionella Risk Assessment and Disinfection
Health and safety law requires anyone in charge of buildings to assess the risks posed by Legionnaires’ disease and the Legionella bacteria, and these courses are designed to help you design and maintain water systems to minimise those risks.
Risk Assessment of Water Systems
Designed as an introduction to the properties of water and the design of water systems, more specifically, the inherent risks that can lead to the development of the Legionella bacteria. The manual includes a log book for you to record details and performance of a cold and hot water system as part of a risk assessment exercise, with a clean log book also provided on a CD Rom.
Disinfection of Water Systems
This tackles how to physically disinfect hot and cold water systems, explaining the properties of water and showing how to prevent the development of Legionella pneumophila bacteria, the cause of Legionnaires’ disease. As well as explaining how a water system should be properly disinfected, it lists the chemicals used in the process and includes a practical demonstration.
Who’s it for?
Plumbers and maintenance engineers employed by local councils and housing associations who are responsible for the physical maintenance of water systems or anyone responsible for the management and maintenance of hot and cold water systems in residential accommodation such as nursing homes and housing associations.
