Benefits of Online Legionella Training

If you have a responsibility for health and safety issues involving the control of legionella then you must be suitably trained. In the UK the Health and Safety Executive point out that inadequate management, lack of training and poor communication have all been identified as contributory factors in outbreaks of Legionnaires’ disease.

As a result, they recommend that those responsible for both strategic and practical legionella risk management issues should be suitably informed, instructed and trained and their suitability assessed.

Their training should also be to a standard which ensures that tasks are carried out in a safe, technically competent manner; and that regular refresher training be given.

In short, both the “Duty Holder” and the “Responsible Person” should have suitable knowledge and training to enable them to discharge their statutory duty of care.
