Event description

Description

We are confident that the information you will receive during the course will have lasting and beneficial influence over your long term Legionella Control program.

Course Objectives

For each delegate to have a good basic understanding of:

  • What the bacteria is

  • How infections are caused

  • How the bacteria proliferates

  • How the bacteria is transmitted

Also each delegate will gain a clear understanding of:

How and Why the Hospitality sector is particularly at risk of an outbreak

What you need to do and actions required to control the risks from Legionella bacteria

Where in built-in water systems problems through design and temperature control can occur and, the actions you need to take to control the hazard and fulfil your key responsibility

Ultimately attendance ensures that you comply with HSG274 Part 2 and that by applying the knowledge provided in the course, it will enable each delegate to ensure that the water systems within your building(s) are safe, risks are being managed and any external help required is identified.
